Thinner-U and Aerobics

If you're going to try Thinner-U to lose weight and get in shape, here's something to do with that extra energy you'll be getting with Thinner-U:

Start doing aerobics. Start out with about 15 minutes a day if you're in bad shape. Don't overdo it. You want to train your body and your metabolism to have an aerobic base. I'll explain more about this in another post, but know now that your body needs to be trained aerobically to burn fat and get you in top physical shape. When I say in top physical shape I'm not referring to a great physique, (although that's a secondary benefit) I'm talking about things like your heart and lungs.

Aerobics will improve your metabolism. By starting out with aerobics as an exercise program you strengthen your vital organs and build endurance. This is what you want to do because as the body is conditioned with aerobics it becomes more and more efficient at burning fat. Your cells will have more oxygen. When cells are filled with oxygen the body has energy and vitality.

The basics of aerobics. Most of us know that aerobics means "with air." When you are exercising by walking, jogging, or dancing, you are doing so aerobically if you can still talk while doing it. The intensity is the key. If you are winded and gasping for air you are not in an aerobic state. Your body has stopped burning fat. When working out aerobically, a person should, however, turn up the intensity for just a very short time and then return to the same pace.

The reason for this is because if the body always exercises at the same level of intensity, it never progresses to being able to burn fat at higher levels of intensity. Therefore, make yourself work just a little harder for about 30 seconds each time.
