Here your deposits represent food (energy in) and your withdrawals represent exercise (energy out). Weight loss begins as soon as you start expending more calories than you deposit, so the more you move, the more you lose! As a bonus, more exercise means a faster metabolic rate which means you enjoy the foods you love more often – guilt free! Here’s the best ways to get moving:
PUMP IT UP: Your muscles are your body’s natural fat burners so your goal should be to use and engage them as much as possible. Do this by performing large ‘multi-muscle’ moves such as chest presses, dips, squats & lunges. Pump classes are great too & offer the same benefits with a cardio boost.
BREAK A SWEAT: Swimming, skipping, jogging, aerobics, cycling are all great ways to set your heart racing and burn fat. To max your results & save time, crank up the intensity dial and decrease your total exercise time. The result: You’ll burn more calories both during and after your workout.
Remember, everyday you’re presented with hidden opportunities burn a few extra calories. Taking the stairs instead of the elevator and parking away from work are all great ways to get moving and each contribute to your body-bank withdrawals. Be creative, think what you can do!
