Now is the time for you to change it all. These Weight Loss Exercises are the best there are. But they do take time. Not much, but at least 2-4 weeks to start showing results. Lets Roll.

What Are the Best Weight Loss Exercises

Aerobic Exercise combined with Weight Training is the ultimate secret to weight loss. There is a magical 2 step formula to lose maximum weight in minimum time.

Step 1 } Lower your calories
Step 2 } Increase the amount of calories you burn.

When it comes to losing fat, exercising is the Big Fish. Dieting without exercising is the major reason why people fail.


What type of Aerobic are the best? Which is the Best Cardio for Weight Loss?

High Intensity Aerobics is the best cardio for weight loss exercise to  lose Body fat. Period. Case closed.

Its the only way to lose fat permanently. For people with slow metabolisms its very essential to perform regular aerobics with high intensity. Its the only effective way to burn calories and with it burn the stubborn fat.



What duration is the best?

30-45 minutes of High Intensity Cardio is essential to see significant effect. Remember the effort should be continuous. If you are just starting out, you may perform for 20 minutes. But at least 30 minutes is required to burn calories efficiently.


How often should I perform Cardio?

I suggest that you perform cardio at least thrice a week. Its the minimum. If your goal is larger fat loss then as time goes on add a fourth and fifth day as well. Remember keep the intensity high.

The Best Fat Loss Expert Help

I highly Suggest that You read Tom Venuto's Burn The Fat e-book. Its the best e-book on Losing Weight revealing you the best Fat Loss secrets of the most famous bodybuilders of all time.

What is the best time to do Cardio?

Morning is the best time for Cardio as the carbohydrates are to a minimum at this time.

Another time to perform is after a Weight Training Session as your body has depleted carbs and while cardio will use up body fat for energy. But if you want to do it later in the day just ensure that you do cardio on empty stomach.


What are the best Aerobic/Cardio Exercises?


Jogging, Stair Climbing, Cycling,  Brisk walking, treadmill exercises, Ski machines and elliptical exercises are the best cardio exercises. These exercises provide a sustained effect on your body and can be maintained  for a certain period of time.

Also the exercise should be gradable and have an option to add resistance. Why? Just as Muscles need Progressive resistance to grow, your cardio respiratory system needs additional resistance to pull it out of comfort zone and produce consistent results.

Human body is constantly trying to perform activities with the least energy expenditure and your heart and lungs are no exception.

Treadmills, Bicycles and Step Aerobics provide these grading benefits and therefore are among the highest rated Weight Loss Exercises.

As time goes on you will perform cardio very easily and the need to add resistance arises. At this time you have to switch over to a treadmill or ski machine. Joining a gym will solve all these problems.

Avoid Sports like golf, football, basketball. These will not provide a sustained effect on your body and will greatly reduce the results. You can keep them as second priority in case you do not have mood and just want to be away from gym someday. But remember Consistency is the Key to reach your Weight Loss Goal.

Aerobics Formula - Fat Burning Heart Rate Zone

Any activity that increases the heart rate into a target zone and maintains it for at least 20 minutes is considered Aerobic { See how recreational sports fail this test }.

220 minus your age =Maximum Heart Rate

Target Zone = 70-80% Maximum.

For example for a 30 year old guy/girl

220 minus 30 = 190 beats/min maximum heart rate.

Target zone = Between 70 % of 190 and 80% of 190

Target Zone = 133 to 152 beats per minute.


How to measure Heart Rate during a Cardio workout?

The Crude Method - Feel your pulse at your wrists for 6 secs and then multiply by 10. Voila you got your Heart Rate.

Standard Method - Heart Rate Monitor will allow you to easily gauge your heart rate.

Also some people use Breathing as a measure. Very inaccurate but works.


How many calories are burned in Cardio sessions?

This depends upon the intensity of exercise, type of exercise and the duration of training. In a treadmill Aerobic exercise about 10-12 calories are burned every minute if performed at high intensity. High Intensity Aerobic exercises burn up to 400 calories per hour. Another good reason to start running I guess.

One Last Tip - Weight Training for Weight Loss

Many people who perform Cardio avoid Weight Training completely. A Grave mistake. I suggest that you add at least 3 times weight training per week to add to the calorie burning effects of Aerobics.

Weight Training and cardio complement each other and work synergistically to help you lose fat. Its the only way to ensure that you do not lose Muscle.

If your aim is not to add Muscle bulk, then just weight train to tone your muscles. But never neglect Weight Training.

Many people commit this mistake but not many people effectively burn fat !!!
