burning maximum calories in one hour..you tell me how? walking? running?
29 Mar 07
I jog three times a week, and get to a sum of about 25km a week only jogging. I also bought special showes that when I walk with them, I burn aproximately 4 times the calories I burn without them - just from doing regular things I always do. These showes also help in shaping the body - especialy the legs, "the very lower back" and stomache while improving my cardiovascular ability the whole time. This way, you can maximize your effort - in a one hour walk, you burn about 4 times more. Swimming I don't recommend unless you are a proffesional swimmer. That is because it is not our natural way of moving, and it is not so easy to swim effectively. Not to mention our blod presuure and many other attributes are different because while swimming you are actualy horizntal and not vertical... Anyway, it is good to take your health in your hands, Good luck!

Also - from repeating the same small movement (like tapping your leg on the floor) over and over again thourought the day (it might seem to someone else like hyperactivism or nervousness) you burn a lot of calories. It is very rare to see fat people who do a typical movement over and over again repeatedly - the repeating movement just burns a lot of calories...

People seem to mix 'what works for losing weight' with 'what is more healthy' Aerobic exercise has a better impact on metabolism and heart health , however anaerobic exercise like WEIGHT LIFTING has the added benefit of RAISING the metabolic rate BMR during and for some time AFTER the exercise : meaning not only do you burn calories while you exercise , you continue to do so for almost 24 hours AFTER EXERCISE IS OVER (during which muscle regeneration occurs)!!! . So I recommend a healthy mix of 20 minutes running followed by 40 minutes assorted weight lifting exercises focusing mainly on AXIAL muscles like thighs , back and abdomen muscles .

Hello liran and thank you . Do you know what health risks are associated with weight lifting ? Well there arent any besides accidental injury EXCEPT a very small risk of RAISING BLOOD PRESSURE during the exercise itself . However this rise is not permanent , meaning it only occurs during the actual exercise . So this means if you have an absolutely normal BP , then by all means go ahead . But if you have ELEVATED BP (which is very likely if you are overweight) then BE CAREFUL and consult with a doctor . One mistake people do while performing weight lifting is to push or pull the weight WHILE HOLDING BREATH , this is VERY DANGEROUS because the pressure in the chest cavity is increased . The "work" part of the exercise or the "active" part should be done with expiration .

Do not over do and lose your enthusiasm, do slowly and constantly and you will be there. Going on a crash program will only hurt you and your ego. Usually, jogging or running will make must individual bore and ending up abandoning the program. You can still play your favorite games for about 45 mins to an hour and get the same result and yet your are enjoying the game.

I started running seriously when I was 14. Now in my 50's still running, nothing at the pace I used to. I now do a lot of Fell Running and Fell Walking. Quite frankly running on the road has become very boring and running on a treadmill is a no brainer. Apologies to people who like it and lets face it the roads in cities are not safe for a varity of reasons! There is little doubt that flat out Interval work will burn off a huge amount of calories. Running up hills will also do this. I prefer to think about the sustained time that we exercise. IF you set of on a sustainable training program with say a 2 hour half marathon at the end of it. You will lose weight and you will become fitter as well as in considerably better shape than you started. Hopefully you will feel that a marathon is only another 6 months away. Studies seem to suggest that it is how far you travel that burns the cals. Going slower will tend to preserve your body better and allow you to exercise more. Save your massive expenditure of calories for the last 2 miles of a race! Depends where your targets are!

well what i had felt in my all experience is that it is all about running and not just walking that will burn most of the calories . the opposite may be true in case if you just get tired after just a short run .

I just started stationary cycling last week, and I can already tell that my leg muscles are getting firmer. I like to do three sets of ten minutes and not just one long boring set. Guess you could try three sets of 20 minutes if you wanted. Hope that helps.

Hi... Swimming is the best form of exercise as its an all over body work out, running isn't actually as good for you especially running on hard ground. I've also been told that you don't really start gaining anyhting til you've been exercising for 20 minutes. Good luck with your excercises. :0)

swimming is a good option for women, it burns of a fair amount of calories, plus it does not put any jarring pressure on the joints... in addition the water serves for resistance to build your muscle tone as well. a bit more strenuous on the body is snow shoveling, which burns 750 calories per hour.
