Your goals matter in fitness. There is this very wrong idea that exercise, no matter what the type, will help you lose weight and look like a fit person.
This comes out of an extreme ignorance perpetuated by the health and fitness industry for years. The idea that calorie intake and output is a simple matter of willpower and work ethic is wrong.
The metabolism works under certain laws that make the willpower and work ethic approach fail for almost everyone who tries.
Here is a silly analogy to drive the point too. A car moving at regular speed on the highway works by certain physical laws as well. You can have all the drive determination and mental fortitude you want, but if you jump out in front of that car your ass won't be around much longer.
Would some people survive? Sure, but they would be few and far between and we certainly wouldn't say, "hey look at Bob he jumped in front of the car and is doing great. You should try too." That's not too far off from what the health and fitness industry does. They show some before and afters of a few success stories while not telling you those people are less than a fraction of a percent of the total. Meanwhile the rest of the people who went on that diet or program are back home on the couch looking like Quasi Bloato after losing the regaining all the weight. high waist empire wedding collections with sleeves
One of the things exercise does is increase hunger, reduce energy and elevate cravings. In other words, exercise can make getting run over by your metabolic car more likely.
This is the reason why you see people who are in the gym day in and day out who look no different and still don't look like they are fit athletic types.
So when you are choosing exercise are you trying to be the best at exercise (Crossfit) or have fun dancing (Zumba) or relax chanting while sweating your balls off (Yoga) or seeing how quickly you can peddle a bike or run 3 miles (endurance activities)? If you are trying to all of these things can be helpful, but none of them will likely provide the complete solution.
Here is what we think we now know based on the research if you really want to make it happen:
1. A base of movement is more important than consistent exercise. In other words you will be better off walking every day as much as possible versus sitting on your ass most of the day and then getting in a workout.
2. Diet is most critical. Very few people above the age of 25 can out exercise a high calorie junk food based diet.
3. Some type of weight training is critical to keep muscle on and keep the body time and tight.
4. Contrary to all the cardio bashing that goes on, when cardio is added to a weight training regime is accelerates fat loss. Cardio alone? That is a different story.
5. Short intense workouts and longer very slow/relaxing workouts seem to have more favorable impact on hunger , energy and cravings.
