If you hate to exercise, you’ll love this article. Of course, I’m not going to suggest that you skip exercise altogether, but I am going to suggest that you don’t exercise very hard. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it’s not.
The fact is that easy workouts play an important role in weight loss. Workouts for beginners or for those who have tried and failed to maintain an exercise program are structured differently than easy workouts for more advanced exercisers.
They also have a different purpose and provide different benefits.
Your goal is to lose weight, right? Weight loss is definitely one of the benefits of an easy workout program. So grab your comfy clothes and let’s get started.
What is a Weight Loss Workout?
A weight loss workout is an exercise session where the sole purpose is to help you lose weight. This is different from a workout that is designed to improve sports performance, build strength or increase your endurance. As a beginning exerciser, it is especially important to be clear about the purpose of your workout program so that you can identify and enjoy the benefits as you achieve them.
Benefits of Easy Workouts
There are numerous benefits to an easy weight loss workout. If you are completely new to exercise, these low intensity workouts will help you burn more calories and as long as you don’t compensate by eating more, the pounds will start to fall off. But these workouts have a more important function.
Easy exercise sessions are the building blocks of your fitness program.
They will help you to build the habits that will lead to significant weight loss and lifelong weight management. You’ll be laying a solid foundation for fitness. More specifically, easy workouts help you to:
- Build self confidence and self awareness
- Establish a daily routine that always includes exercise
- Develop good muscular form gradually
- Improve your ability to sleep well at night
- Decrease your stress level
- Create awareness of the benefits of exercise
