The Evil Secrets of Aerobics

Aerobic exercises are the most conventional set of training protocols that most trainers give their obese clients. While it may provide exceptional benefits to the heart and lungs, this mode of exercise is NOT exactly the best tool to bust the fat.

1. If your mindset is that aerobic exercises are the best fat loss workout since it allows a high rate of calories burned, you have to think again. For example, an Australian study conducted tests on different exercise modes on two groups of subjects. The study showed one group instructed to do high intensity interval exercises, and the others, on aerobics for twice the interval training's duration. Surprisingly, aerobics gave more room for weight gain while the others who weren't on it lost a good sum of fat. There are sevral other studies conducted in different parts of the world that gave similar results.

2. Another myth is that a good fat loss solution is to do an hour of aerobics daily in the gym. On the contrary, it is not. Males who exercise an hour a day for 6 days a week will result to minimal weight loss.5lbs for the whole year. Moreover, the statistics can be more cruel to women who work their butts in the gym -- six hours of hard work every week means approximately four pounds off their weight in a year.

3. Another common myth is that resistance training can increase your body's metabolism. This holds true only if you bombard the client with intense strength training. The bad thing about aerobics along with a low calorie meal is that it affects your metabolic rate negatively. This implies that you would have to eat even less to maintain what you have created. The solution is weight training can be done in the gym. Interval training has the ability to revv up your metabolism for at least 36 hours post-exercise.

If you believe that aerobics is the best foot forward when it comes to becoming fit or losing weight then you have been a victim of propagandist media campaigns. Having an exercise regime designed particularly for you is the best way to lose weight or maintain your fitness. Sadly, nutritionists and dieticians are not the right people to get this idea from. Instead, you have to find an effective fitness instructor who can create tailored exercises and not just prescribe a 'value meal' exercise.

Moreover, you must be able to understand how and why your program is created that way, otherwise, you will not be able to easily focus on it.
