Do I Have To Exercise To Lose Weight?
It is important to exercise if you want to improve your health and maximise your weight loss. This doesn’t have to be high impact, high intensity workouts - all you need to do is increase the amount that you walk.
If you raise your heart rate for about 30 minutes a day, five days a week, this will be beneficial to your health. The more exercise you do, the better the results.
Cardiovascular exercise like walking, swimming, cycling or jogging is excellent for your heart health. It is important to build this up gradually, to avoid damaging your body.
You may also feel more inclined to work out as your body weight reduces. Do whatever exercise feels achievable. This will depend on your baseline fitness and previous exercise experience.
If you can afford it, a personal trainer is a good investment as he or she will help you to exercise safely. If you are very unfit and inexperienced and feel intimidated by the thought of this, then there are plenty of home-based options.
There are great workouts that you can stream from the internet. You could start with some chair-based exercise. You could also have a look at a streaming service like Beachbody On Demand, which provides many programmes for people at different levels of fitness, or Les Mills On Demand which is great if you are fitter, but restricted by time. Another great tool is Couch to 5K, which aims to get you to run 5 kilometers by following a 9 week plan. This is a good thing to work towards if you are just starting out and could be attempted once you are able to comfortably walk a good distance.
Weight lifting, or resistance training is also very beneficial for your health. If you have ever lifted lots of weights you will know it definitely also raises your heart rate and is good exercise. It is beneficial for building bone density and increasing your muscle mass. This is not to say that you will look bulky if you lift a few weights. It is extremely hard to build significant muscle mass – it honestly won’t be your biggest problem, but it will help you to lose body fat if you can build some muscle.
