What 's your favorite exercise?
If you love doing cardio, great! But, be warned, it might not be all it seems.
If you think cardio is the only way you are going to lose weight, think again.
Now, we know losing weight is a numbers game. Calories in must not exceed calories out.
If you add in weight training to the cardio exercise you'll build lean muscle and that will help boost your metabolism and burn more fat.
And speaking of building muscle - "OK, I ran, or I biked so I don't need to do leg exercises."
In order to get that metabolic burn in the legs you are going to need to do things like squats, or leg lifts or even lunges.
do you think you have to work out for an hour in order for cardio exercise to be effective?
You don't. Doctors say any cardio exercise is good for you and your heart.
Not only will you burn calories fast but you are likely to burn calories for up to 38 hours after the workout because you have revved up that metabolism.
But no matter what you do- doctors say getting up and getting moving is essential to good health.
