Information about these workouts
The following workouts are designed with fat loss in mind, which will result in getting a more toned body. Success with these workouts is dependent on a few things. Your diet is one of those things. If you’re eating too much or the wrong foods, you may not get the results you’re looking for. Your diet is very important to your success.
Other very important factors include the amount of effort you put into these workouts. The effort you give will obviously have a massive difference with regards to the amount of fat you’ll burn. Plus frequency, how often you perform the workouts.
Fat Burning Vs Weight loss
I prefer to use the term fat burning as suppose to weight loss. This is because you can burn off a significant amount of body fat while your body weight can only slightly change. This is because a balanced diet and exercise can increase bone, muscle density and muscle size which will add body weight. You may actually gain some weight, however the benefits will improve your health and appearance for both men and women.
There is a big difference in some of the recommended reps for some of the exercises in these fat burning workouts. This is due to people having different levels of physical fitness and ability. Adjust the reps to suit your ability level.
Aerobics for fat burning
Aerobics is very good for burning calories, also toning and strengthening the body, however you don’t need to rely only on aerobic classes. Some days you may not be able to attend classes and other days you simply may not feel like an hour long aerobics session, you need to be able to exercise on those off days. Fortunately you don’t have to spend an hour every time you exercise and fortunately there are plenty of exercises you can do at home that don’t require any equipment.
There is no excuse now! If you cannot afford a gym membership or if you don’t have the free time to go, this workout can be performed in the comfort of your own home with little time needed.
