#19 of 71 Rapid Weight Loss Tips: This one should have been number one on this list and it’s critical to your success…Join a fitness center.
#20 of 71 Rapid Weight Loss Tips: When exercising, make sure you make use of all compound exercises. A compound exercise is one that uses multiple muscle groups at once. One of the best for overall fitness and weight loss is the squat. And no ladies, you won’t build a big butt! You will increase your metabolism dramatically and at the same time sculpt a great looking rear end.
#21 of 71 Rapid Weight Loss Tips: Avoid using the many types of balance-training exercises that are being promoted everywhere. While they will help somewhat in your balance they won’t do a thing for weight loss.
#22 of 71 Tips For Quick Weight Loss: Any time throughout the day you can jump in one spot with using both feet and alternating with one foot at a time. Bend at the knees while keeping your back straight.
#23 of 71 Tips For Quick Weight Loss: Ensure that you are exercising all 3 heads of your triceps muscles. You can do bench dips at home or using dumbbells or weight lifting machines at your gym. To do triceps dips at home sit on a bench or sturdy chair. Grab onto the front edge with your hands by your hips, shoulder width apart.
Place your heels flat on the floor, while extending your legs away from your body. Move forward until your hips are no longer touching the chair/bench. Lower your hips slowly downwards until your upper arms are parallel to the floor then push up to a full extension.
#24 of 71 Tips For Quick Weight Loss: As with your legs, when exercising your back try to focus on compound exercises. Your back muscles are a fairly large muscle group and as such will help to increase your metabolism and burn body fat at a fast rate if you use weights to develop them.
The bent over barbell row is one of the best for this. From a standing position and your feet approximately shoulder width apart, bend your knees and bring your hips back slightly. You’re your upper body forward and tighten your abs.
With your arms extended and back completely straight, pull the bar towards your lower rib cage area. Pause for a second while squeezing your shoulder blades together then slowly lower the bar to the start.
#25 of 71 Tips For Quick Weight Loss: Perform shoulder shrugs to strengthen your upper back. Stand holding a dumbbell in each hand then lift your shoulders toward your head keeping your arms straight. Pause for a second then lower your shoulders to starting position.
Do not roll your shoulders back and do both shoulders at the same time.
#26 of 71 Tips For Quick Weight Loss: Perform every lift in a steady, controlled manner. Don’t lift the weight and then lower it too fast. You can injure yourself and more importantly, you will reduce the weight loss effectiveness of the exercises. Performing weight lifting exercises slow will cause your muscles to burn more body fat.
#27 of 71 Rapid Weight Loss Tips: At the beginning of your weight lifting exercise program start out slow. For the first week or two only perform 2 – 3 total sets per muscle group. Work up to the point where you can do three sets of each weight lifting exercise at ten to fifteen reps per set.
#28 of 71 Rapid Weight Loss Tips: Rest for 30 to 120 seconds between each set on each weight lifting exercise.
#29 of 71 Rapid Weight Loss Tips: If you own a bicycle get out there and use it every day instead of using your car to go everywhere.
#30 of 71 Rapid Weight Loss Tips: As you lose excess body fat and your fitness level improves, you will have additional energy. This doesn’t mean you should exercise more. Change your routine at this point.
#31 of 71 Tips For Quick Weight Loss: Always be aware of how your body is responding to exercise especially weight lifting exercises. If you feel faint or sick during your exercise session, you may either be over-training or not consuming enough of the nutrients you need.
#32 of 71 Tips For Quick Weight Loss: As you
begin any exercise or weight loss program your breathing rate will
become a little more rapid. As you become more fit and lean your
breathing will reduce to a level where you could talk to someone while
exercising. This is an indication that you should increase your
intensity a little.
However, if you can’t even say a word to someone after finishing a set, you should reduce your intensity or work load slightly.
#33 of 71 Rapid Weight Loss Tips: Your level of intensity needs to be at a high enough level that you feel some soreness the day after. The stiffness you feel when starting out will go away within the first week or two as your muscles become more accustomed to exercise.
#34 of 71 Rapid Weight Loss Tips: If you are excessively over weight or have not exercised in many years your joints (hip, knees and ankles) may be too weak to sustain long bouts of exercise. If you do feel pain in any joints then just begin by doing short walks.
As your body adjusts and you start to lose weight you can then increase your exercise. Make sure you always consult your doctor before beginning any exercise program in the first place.
#35 of 71 Tips For Quick Weight Loss: In addition to the above mentioned joint pain, you may also notice some pain or discomfort in your lower back when beginning a weight loss exercise program. This is usually due to a muscle imbalance with the abdominal muscles. But again, check with your doctor to make sure this is not something more serious. If it is just a muscle imbalance, and in most cases it is, all you have to do is strengthen your ab muscles and lower back muscles.
#36 of 71 Tips For Quick Weight Loss: If you start to feel faint after a long layoff or if you have never exercised before, or you notice a slight headache or heart palpitations, stop and make an appointment to see your doctor.
#37 of 71 Tips For Quick Weight Loss: Avoid lifting weights or doing any intense cardiovascular conditioning in you are sick from a cold or flu.
#38 of 71 Rapid Weight Loss Tips: Walking is good for anyone who wants to lose excess fat. Regardless of your age or fitness level, you can improve your weight loss goals by walking on a regular basis.
This is especially true if you are just starting to exercise and are over weight. Walking will also put the least amount of pressure on your joints when compared with some other forms of aerobic exercise.
#39 of 71 Weight Loss Tips: Always record your exercise sessions. If you are just starting out with walking, make sure you time your walking sessions each time. As soon as the distance you are walking begins to feel easy, add in an extra 5 minutes. Keep doing this until you are walking for about 60 minute sessions. Then start going to the gym.
#40 of 71 Weight Loss Tips: Walk at a steady pace during your entire walking session.
Don't over do it in the beginning. If you come to a hill, slow down your pace until you are used to it.
