 Best Running Tips To Lose Fat

If you want to lose fats you have to focus on two main things: A healthy diet and a regular exercise.
Here I will break downthe importance of running or jogging in order to lose fats.
First of all one should be aware that running is included in cardio exercises. Cardio exercises are the ones that increase our heart rate to a level where body (muscles) starts to lose fats. They also include high metabolism aerobics, swimming, cycling, brisk walking, riding or sports.
Most importantly, for cardio exercises, the muscles should be given a rest of at least 8hrs to restore the glycogen stored in them or else lactic acid will be deposited. When lactic acid deposition takes place in muscles, the fat loss process is completely hampered. So it is advisable that you do your cardio 4 to 5 times a week but regularly.

Let us come to the point that why I am professing running for fat loss as the best kind of cardio in young and middle aged people.

Most Importantly: It will help you lose fats very quickly

Secondly: It will distress you, save you from continuous release of cortisol hormone automatically defending your body against fat deposition mode and will provide safeguard, to many of you, against emotional binging.

Best Running Tips For Beginners

So next question is what needs to be done if you have chosen running for fat loss. In such a case, person should try to run 10 miles per week. So it makes 2 miles per day if you run 5 times a week. Here one thing to be noted is that if you are a beginner obviously you cannot run 2 miles in a day for 5 days regularly. For such people, it is advised that they build their stamina of jogging and it may take 1 month to achieve the above mentioned target.

Once you are done with your stamina building and you have achieved a target of running 2 miles per day for 5 times a week, you should start taking another factor into account. This includes the timings; if you want to lose fats you must run 25-35 min per day 5 times a week. But keep in mind, in jogging distance covered is of prime importance over speed.

The kind of running which is most effective against fats is slow jogging of 25 to 35 min daily for 5 times a week covering 2 to 2.5 miles daily.

How much FAT would you be losing if you achieve the above mentioned target? Studies have shown that a person weighing 125 lb – 130 lb, jogging for 10 miles-11 miles per week will roughly lose 1000 calories; a person with 175lb- 185lb while jogging for 10miles-11 miles per week will roughly lose 1400 calories and a person heavier with a weight of 225 lb- 235 lb when jog for 10 miles per week would lose almost 1800 calories.

Let me enlighten you further, since 1lb of fats consists of roughly 35000 calories so a person with 125lb-130lb needs almost 4 to 5 weeks to lose 1 pound of fats where as a person with 225lb to 235lb would need 2 to 2.5 weeks to lose 1 lb of fats if he is achieving above mentioned target of jogging regularly.
