Here we will discuss the essentials of using exercise to influence maximum fat burning. You will learn how to target your own individual body type to find the most effective fat burning exercises for you

The two main types of exercise are: aerobic, and anaerobic:

Aerobic exercise, first of all, is a low-intensity, low-pulse-rate endurance type of exercise. The aerobic system runs at a turtle's pace - slow to moderate. The heart rate, on average, is between 127 and 130 beats per minute (bpm). Examples of aerobic exercises include walking, mild treadmill, biking, light jogging, light swimming, light cross-country skiing and other activities where the required heart rate is maintained.

Anaerobic is a higher-intensity, higher pulse rate resistance type of exercise. The anaerobic energy system kicks in at a much higher pulse rate, around 145 beats per minute or more. Even a slow pulse rate can activate anaerobic if the intensity is high enough. Some examples of intense exercise that use the anaerobic energy system include running, fast jogging, fast treadmill, soccer, hockey, basketball, swing dancing, wrestling, weight training, sprinting and boxing. It can also include activities such as bike riding and swimming, if the activity is done intensely to the point where the necessary higher heart rate is achieved.

It will depend on your particular body type as to whether you use aerobic and/or anaerobic. The four body types are Adrenal, Thyroid, Liver, and Ovary.

Aerobic exercises are the most effective fat burning exercises for the Adrenal body type as the adrenal glands have already been overworked. Putting them into too much stress would make things worse. The stress hormone cortisol can be triggered in the Adrenal body types with too much stimulation. Too much cortisol can make you fat. For the Adrenal body types, intense exercise will block the rejuvenation and repair of the body. An Adrenal type person can even gain weight with exercise.

The Ovary body types have lower-body cellulite fat. They need a combination of both aerobic and anaerobic exercise for maximum results. Anaerobic exercises are the most effective fat burning exercises for both the Liver body types and Thyroid body types. In the case of athletes and many young people with a high metabolism, weight loss can occur using both aerobic and anaerobic despite their specific body types and either type is an effective fat burning exercise.

Starting a weight loss program is an important decision and it's equally important that you understand the differences in the types of fat burning exercises so you can choose the one that's right for you. This will enable you to choose the most effective fat burning exercise for your particular body type. All too many of us approach their weight loss program all wrong and have difficulty understanding why they are not seeing significant results after weeks of hard work.

For adrenal body types the most effective fat burning exercises are aerobic exercises, for the liver and thyroid body types the most effective fat burning exercises are anaerobic exercises, and the ovary body types can use both aerobic and anaerobic exercises.
