All You Needed to Know About Jogging And Weight Loss

A lot of people who have the habit of running might get frustrated if they are doing it as a way to lose weight, especially if they don’t see appropriate results. Exercise can be so complex that doing it wrong could cause unwanted results. This article will try to explain some basic concepts about exercise, which might help to get the desired outcome.

First variable: Time

Time is important at a molecular level. The first 30 to 45 minutes your body burns sugar. The fat burning process begins after 45 minutes. This is important especially for people who are not used to run constantly because when they start doing it, their average exercise takes no longer than 40 minutes. The consequence is that they won´t see any effect in their weight and there is a good chance that they will abandon the activity.

Second variable: Intensity

This parameter is directly related to heart rate. If you run at a pace that your heart rate is barely increased, it is likely that you will not see any significant result, even if you run for a considerable amount of time. Exercise is so specific and the body is so wise that you need to give it a proper stimulus if you want to have the desired effect.

If you are having trouble losing weight and you are tired of running, analyze your routine considering the two parameters mentioned above. It is possible that you are making a very common mistake. If this is your case don’t be discouraged, you have to understand that in order to start losing weight, you need to get used to exercise at a good level of intensity and for a considerable amount of time at least three times a week. This might take a while since your body needs to make the proper adjustments.

My advice is that you should start increasing the intensity or the time progressively and slowly, always paying attention to your body reaction. Do not try to push your limits too far too fast because it can be counterproductive. You might also want to play a bit with intensity. Maybe increase it to a reasonable limit for one or two minutes and then slowing down to the previous level. The increases might be a bit longer when you feel ready to do so. This action will also be beneficial to your heart, making it able to pump more blood with less effort and sooner or later, you will start losing weight as long as you are consistent.
