what kind of exercise to lose weight?

Postby foxhana » Fri, 30 Sep 2005 5:31 am

i know all the slimming pills and teas and slimming centre doesn't work. :D

so what kind of exercise do i need to lose weight?

i want to lose around 10kg. ^^

i need to know waht kind works best other than running. :D

cuz my ankle is hurt and the doctor says i can't do too much vigorious exercise.

and my skipping doesn't seemed to work... cuz i don't really sweat when i skip, just panting. ^^ how many times and long do i need to skip a day?

and some other kind of exercising without buying equipment would be great. i'm a student and is really tight on budget. >_<

thanks alot in advance!! ^^

Hi

There are actually certain exercises which you can do it at home.
Such as crutches and sit-ups. For a start you may do it 50 times per day? As time passes, you should increase the number of times you do per day to 100 then 150....

Those are for body tonning...to really lose weight...one must be cardio exercises like swimming..cycling...jogging...etc..always listen to your body..if you don feel good after workout..lessen the intensity then slowly increase it..

Hi foxhana,

There isn't much workout you can do to lose weight, as you are building muscle, which weighs more than fat. Try this: go on the GI diet (really effective), and take long walks (4K minimum). :D

if i am not wrong..u only start to burn fat after 20 min of exercise

i do skipping as well...coz i dun like outdoor sports.
and i can skip while i watch tv...

usually i will skip abt 45 min per day..u dun really haf to skip fast..just normal pace but consistent...

yeah... i don't like outdoor exercises too... that's why i opt for skipping.. or those that can be done at home. :D

i don' skip continuously... i skip for like 5 or 10 minutes then stop a while... then skip again. cuz my stamina dropped alot after i hurt my ankle. >_<

hmm... sweat means the fats are burning right? ^^

would it help me sweat faster to wear and sweater and skip? sweat faster like tt... haha

and can i drink water in the middle of the skipping if i feel i'm gonna faint from dehydration? or do i have to drink before i start skipping? :D

sweat doesn't necessary mean burn fat..

it's just water...that's explain why u haf to exercise at least 20 minutes before yr body start to burn fat..(i think so, if not pls correct me)

u can try wear thicker clothings..but once after exercise u drink water, u still put on the weight..

people say sauna burn fats..but to me i feel that it's water..
