By increasing your heart rate and oxygen intake, the blood flow around your body is increased. By exercising on a regular basis and increasing your body’s blood circulation, an active individual will burn more calories compared to an average person.
Doing different activities will push your heart rate to different levels. Some strenuous sports such as uphill running will push your heart rate over 200 beats a minute. A less demanding activity such as walking will gradually increase your heart rate without causing you to gas out.
Whichever activity you choose to do, make sure it is one that you like to do so you will keep on doing it. To get the most out of your workout, try to push yourself into an aerobic state where your body is using more oxygen than it is taking in.
By engaging in any form of aerobics, you can achieve that beach ready look, or even shed those lingering couple pounds. Of course, the more you like the workout, the better your chances are of sticking with it, and the more intense the training the more you will burn in one session.
It is no point going for a workout which will burn tons of calories but you end up feeling too exhausted or aching all over. Chances are, you may not want to repeat that again thus losing the opportunity to lose your unwanted weight.
