Cardio Exercises to Lose Weight


Cardio means relating to the heart and cardiovascular exercises promote a healthy heart. Everybody needs to do some exercise, to keep their body fit and maintain the health of their hearts. Listed below, are the various options you can use to get rid of the body fat quickly.

3 Best Cardio Workouts for Fast Weight Loss
The 3 best workouts are skipping, running, and swimming. They help burn a lot of calories at a faster rate.

This is an excellent aerobic workout. You can do this outdoors or indoors on a treadmill. You can enjoy the weather outdoors and you can have a controlled workout on a treadmill indoors. So, whichever way you choose to perform this workout, make sure you wear the right shoes to avoid any injuries. A running session of 20 minutes burns up to 90 calories.

This is my favorite workout, all you need is a good pair of shoes and a jump rope. This is a fast paced, full body workout. Skipping needs a bit of practice, and after you become skilled in skipping, you will be burning more calories and building your muscles in a proper way. You can burn an amazing 200 calories in a mere 12 minute workout session of skipping. This workout is even better than running and is the best option for losing weight.

This is another great workout and it utilizes all the muscles of your body. Swimming will not only help you to lose weight, but will also improve your flexibility. For a 30 minutes session of breast stroke swimming, you burn around 270 calories. After an hour of swimming, I bet you will be hungry and tired, not to mention heavily ‘worked out’. This also helps to improve metabolism.

Other Workout Options
Given above, were the best cardio exercises. However, there are other choices which also help in weigh loss and these are listed below.

This is another great, full body workout. However, one needs to be very careful while boxing, to avoid injuries. Also, if you are a beginner, it is better if you hire a trainer.

Step Aerobics
This is another popular choice. All you need is a step platform, and you are ready to go. You burn a lot of calories in step aerobic, a 30 minute session helps to burn around 400 calories. This focuses on weight loss from your thigh, butt, and hips muscles.

This is a fun exercise and anybody can do it. All you need is some good high beat music. You can also join a class, enjoy learning a new dance form and lose weight side by side. Quick step salsa, is a dance form which burns the maximum calories.

This is an easy to do workout and helps weight loss from your lower body.

Important Tips

  • It is very important that you do a warm-up session of 10 minutes minimum, before starting a workout. You can do mild jogging for warming up.
  • Keep a towel and water sipper handy, when doing any workout.
  • If you are performing more than one exercise, take a 2 minute rest between each of them and sip a little water.
  • Whenever going for a workout plan, drink a lot of water, around 2.5 – 3 liters on a daily basis.
  • It is important that you include some weight training options as well.
  • Follow regular exercising and healthy eating habits.

Use any of the above choices and get in a better, more attractive shape. Also, follow a high fiber diet to lose weight faster.
