Best exercises to lose weight?

The best exercises for losing weight are cardiovascular exercises otherwise known as "cardio". These are exercises that increase your heart rate and metabolism and burn calories. Make sure you do cardio in the morning on an empty stomach for best results. The more you do, for longer, the more fat you will burn. It is best not to do it too hard or too slow. You need to be in your target heart range which is somewhere between not panting and not speaking normally. So if someone asks you a question whilst you are exercising, you can answer them with a few breaths here and there to catch up!

Best cardio exercises for losing weight fast are:

  • Treadmill - Running or fast walking
  • Cross- trainer
  • Cycling - Ideally stationary as it keeps the same steady pace
  • Stepping
  • Any type of cardio class
You should aim to do cardio 4-5 times a week for around 45-120 minutes at a time. Drink plenty of water.
