Some exercises are much better at developing overall fitness and dropping weight than others. Cardiovascular health is significantly improved, for instance, by interval training. In an interval training session, the athlete puts a short, intense “burst” of activity into an otherwise typical cardio activity such as cycling or walking. The burst of activity significantly increases the caloric burn of the overall workout and keeps the body burning more calories longer.
Similarly, strength training can improve overall health and increase weight loss, if approached correctly. Rather than focusing on a single area, such as the biceps or leg, those who want to lose weight through strength training should develop strong muscles all over the body. Larger, stronger muscles have higher caloric demands, which in turn speed weight loss through exercise.
By combining strength training with cardiovascular interval training, athletes can lose significant amounts of weight relatively quickly. However, it is a good idea to consult with a physician prior to starting a weight loss plan.
