Return to start, repeat, then switch sides. The plan is easy to follow and comes with instructions on how to do so. Continue interval sprinting in this way. Gradually increase the number of days. With your hands on a Swiss ball, assume a push-up position with your feet on the floor, hands directly beneath your shoulders and body forming a straight line from head to heels.
And starting the morning with exercise is the best habit of all. But by starting your morning with physical activity , you set the day's pace, Bryant says. We can all relate to that -- because once the day gets going, it's hard to get off the treadmill called life.
Research suggests that morning exercise improves sleep , a benefit that could also promote weight loss, Bryant tells WebMD. One study of overweight women between the ages of 50 to 75 showed that those who engaged in consistent morning exercise about four hours a week slept better than those who exercised less.
The evening exercisers had more trouble falling asleep - even if they fit in the four hours a week. Bryant explains the connection of sleep and weight loss: It is possible that by exercising in the morning -- instead of evening - the exercise affects the body's circadian rhythm your internal body clock so you get better-quality sleep. Good sleep helps control the hormonal balance that helps control appetite.
Brisk exercise an hour or more daily has helped more than 4, "successful losers" in The National Weight Control Registry -- they've all lost 30 pounds or more and kept it off for a year or longer.
Many of them break up their exercise into shorter spurts throughout the day instead of doing a single, marathon workout session. But if you're overweight , you're at risk for a heart attack. If you don't do something about your weight, it's indirect self-destructive behavior. It's the same as smoking a pack of cigarettes daily. This has got to be the highest priority because it's your health. One way to make exercise a daily habit is to integrate your workout into your regular life, says Walter Thompson, PhD, professor of exercise physiology at Georgia State University in Atlanta.
Physical activity - not just exercise per se -- can become part of your daily routine, Thompson tells WebMD. I talk more about integrating physical activity into your daily lifestyle. Take the stairs rather than the elevator. These are habits you can get used to. They will become common practice.
Structured physical activity is also important. Walking, yoga , lifting weights, biking, running, and swimming - could all be a morning exercise choice. Here's an estimate of the average calorie-burn potential from 30 minutes of exercise:. Moderate Exercise Walking 3. One recent study noted that yoga - a popular morning activity - can help prevent the dreaded middle-age spread and even help shed unwanted pounds. Researchers looked at normal and overweight men and women who practiced yoga regularly at least one session of 30 minutes or more per week for four years or more.
It compared their weight with the weight of people who didn't do yoga. Normal-weight people who practiced yoga gained less than those who didn't practice yoga. Overweight people who practiced yoga lost an average of 5 pounds; those who didn't practice gained about 14 pounds. Yoga's effect may have more to do with body awareness than the actual calories burned during the average session, researchers say.
