Other exercises that we consider to be effective for burning calories will be included in this section.
They are all aerobic in nature, and they are all very effective in burning body fat.
These cardio-exercises are all done indoors using different exercise equipment, with the only exception, if you choose to put one of them outdoors during good weather.
So far we talked about walking, jogging and running outside.
In this section we will cover doing cardio exercises using the stationary upright bicycles, rowing machines, treadmills, stair-climbers and elliptical machines.
STATIONARY UPRIGHT BICYCLES
Let’s start off with the stationary upright bicycle. There are many different models, but they all provide a no-impact, low injury work out.
Anyone can use them! And their fat burning potential is from medium to very high, depending on–how hard you are pedaling.
The next on our list are rowing machines. This is one of our favorite methods for burning calories.
The rowing machine not only gives you an excellent aerobic exercise, but it also works all the major muscles in your body.
The fat burning potential with the rowing machine is very high.
Like the stationary bicycle it is a no-impact, low injury workout, with the only exception for people that have lower back problems.
In this case, you will have to choose one of the other options.
Another important thing to consider with the rowing machines, is that they are very exhausting, and very few people can sustain doing this exercise for the 30-60 minutes, which is necessary to maximize fat-burning.
The treadmill is the third exercise machine that we will cover. It can be used for walking, jogging or running. Since you will use this exercise machine inside, the safety issue or the weather are not a problem!
In the newer models there is less impact on your joints which lowers the chance of injury tremendously.
The other advantage is that you can put a treadmill on an incline, and this will really have you burning some serious calories.
Now let’s finish this section by going over the elliptical machine.
The elliptical machines are one of the most popular cardio exercise machines in the world, and offer a no-impact cardio workout that is fun and entertaining.
In addition they provide some muscle-development with a very high fat burning potential.
THIS CONCLUDES THE CARDIO-EXERCISE SECTION…!
So for burning calories, and moving toward creating the body of your dreams, these are the most effective machines that you can use.
There are other options, but they require too much time to learn how to use them properly, or are not effective for long term fat burning, without muscle loss.
Next section Building New Muscle will be about weight training, and how it can help you lose weight in the long term.
Without weight training, any weight loss program will be incomplete!
