Simple Exercise Plans To Burn Calories for Weight Loss


Burn Up To 500 Calories A Day

weight loss workoutsIf you would like to look at losing weight using a simple exercise plan, you can lose one pound a week by upping your activity level by 500 calories a day. How easy is that to do? Take a look:

Exercise Suggestions

* Get out your bike and take a ride. Tackle a few moderate hills and aim for about five miles total. Burn: 250 calories

* Go dancing – and really DANCE. The longer you’re out on the floor instead of at the table drinking up high-calorie drinks or eating, the more you’ll get out of it. Dancing that makes you breathless and warms up your body will net you a nice calorie savings. Burn: 400 calories for one hour.

* Take a half-hour walk around the park. Aim for a pace that’s a little faster than a stroll, but not fast enough to be breathless. Burn: 160 calories.

* Play a game of tennis. Make arrangements with a friend for a weekly tennis game and you’ll be amazed at the difference. One hour of vigorous tennis is one of the best calorie burners around. Burn: 800 calories. Woo Hoo!

* Swimming is great for you, and is fun and relaxing. The water resistance means you burn more calories, and you avoid the stress impact on joints from aerobics, dancing or walking. Do a few laps at a slow crawl – if you can get up to an hour you’ll be doing great! Burn: 510 calories

* Get out into your garden. It is good for your health and a way to de-stress. An hour of gardening tasks that includes bending and stretching can burn up to as many calories as a brisk walk. Burn: 250 calories.

All exercise/calorie numbers are based on a woman weighing 130 pounds. If you weigh more, you’ll burn more.

Want an added bonus to burning calories through exercise? When you exercise, you build muscle and burn fat. Your body uses more energy to maintain and feed muscle than it does fat.

moderate exerciseFor best results, mix and match calorie cutting with an exercise plan and you will burn off some of those calories.

Don’t Deprive Yourself Overly Much

Do keep in mind that eating less than 1000 calories a day for more than a few days will convince your body that it’s starving and slow your metabolism. Keep calorie ranges reasonable, and get out there and exercise.
