Weight loss and exercise. Yes, these share a positive relationship but exercise helps you to lose your love handles in more ways than one. Exercises can be divided into aerobic and anaerobic exercises. I shall expound on both so that you can be enlightened so that you can make informed choices on which exercises to embark to best aid your weight loss.

Weight Loss and Exercise
What are aerobic exercises? The latter hinges on you breaking into a sweat as you work at moderate intensity over a period of half to one hour. This works your heart and lungs, taking in more oxygen for you to cope with the exercise. The energy expended will come from your body fat and the fat burning process will continue a few hours after your workout. Thus, to some it up, weight loss and exercise is true because aerobic exercises burn fat directly. Suitable exercises are jogging, swimming or singles tennis. Team sports are not very ideal aerobic exercises since you inadvertently get periods of rest, allowing your heart rate to drop.

Anaerobic exercises on the other hand, allow you to take breaks in between due to the high amount of effort needed. You also may or may not break into a sweat. Think of doing repetitions in an air-conditioned gym and the time lapsed and the few minutes rest required between each set. For anaerobic exercises, you do not take need to take in as much oxygen. As a result, it is carbohydrates (not fat) that is burnt, but is also essential in any weight loss program. (This process requires a lengthy biological explanation which I will not elaborate on.) This may not seem in line with your equation of weight loss and exercise. However, you are burning fat, but indirectly. Due to the explosive nature of anaerobic exercises, it builds up your muscles, revving up your metabolic rate and burning fat even after your exercise! More on Weight Loss.

The guest author of this article did a good job of demonstrating a few of the exercises that give you a good cardiovascular workout when describing aerobic exercises. Anaerobic exercises are the strength training you MUST include for your natural weight loss program to be as effective as is can be for a long period of time. If you exclude exercise of any type from your program, you will fail and exclusion of either of the two exercise types mentioned above means limited or short term success.
