Before doing any strenuous exercise you need to warm up. Simple stretches and flexing the muscles you plan to work will prevent damage when you kick your workout into high gear. It is equally important to stretch after exercise, which can help reduce pain and be part of your cool down routine.
There are three basic types of exercise that you want to include in your workout plans. Not all three have to be included in every workout, but a good mixture of the three throughout your week will yield the most productive results. Cardiovascular workouts, which include aerobics, walking, swimming, running and dancing as popular choices for beginners, help strengthen the muscles of the heart and increase oxygen flow while burning calories. Strength conditioning,, involves lifting weights or doing exercise that focuses on one muscle group at a time and usually involves repetitions. This is beneficial for losing weight because it helps develop muscle mass. Muscle burns calories when while you are at rest, so the more muscle tissue you have the faster you will drop the extra pounds. Finally, flexibility training, which includes slow stretches that are 15 to 30 seconds in length. These can be worked into your cool down routine or done independently of your workout, but should be done daily for best results.
