Having too much fat in the body makes one overweight and obese. These two medical conditions are known to increase blood pressure, which is the most prevalent cause of stroke.
The best way to burn this excess body fat is to employ a natural, unadulterated means, like exercise which is any activity carried out by the body to improve or maintain physical fitness and general health and wellness. One of the health benefits of exercise is the burning of excess fat.
Other fat-burning means like the use of supplements can have some adverse effects on the body. But the natural way is pure and free from any adverse impact.
Some exercises that can help in fat burning include:
Walking is an excellent way to exercise the body. It is a cheap, safe, and convenient way for starters to begin exercise without feeling overwhelmed.
A study of Havard health estimated that an individual of 70kg would burn about 167 calories every 30 minutes if he walks at an average pace of 4 mph.
Walking is flexible and can easily fit into one’s daily routine. You can decide to avoid the lift and take the stairs at work or walk some distance before taking a cab while going to the market.
As a beginner, ensure you walk for at least 30 minutes 3 to 4 times a week. You can then increase it as time goes on.
Jogging or running
Jogging and running are other exercises that help in fat burning. Though they look similar, the significant difference is that the pace in running is higher than that of jogging.
Jogging and running are not as flexible as walking as they require a dedicated time and wears. As a beginner, you should ensure you jog or run for 20-30 minutes 3-4 times a week. Jogging and running can be done in your compound if you find it hard to jog or run outdoor and if you have a relatively large compound.
Many people cycle for fun without knowing its health benefits. Cycling is a good type of exercise that helps improve fitness and can help in fat burning.
Although cycling is known to be done outdoors, fitness centers now have stationary indoor bikes that give the same experience as the outdoor ones. Apart from fat burning, cycling has been found to help in overall body fitness and lower heart disease risk.
Even though swimming is fun, it helps in fat burning, building endurance, muscle strength, and so on. If you do not have a swimming pool at home, try and visit the swimming pool at least twice a week. Also, swimming has a low-impact nature, which means that it puts less stress on the joint. Therefore, swimming is a fantastic option for people with joint pains.
