Today, I want to talk to you about exercise. Should you do cardio for weight loss?

Exercise only contributes 15% of your results with weight loss. The majority of your results will come from diet.

There are basically two types of exercise for weight loss:

• Aerobic — Low Intensity (with oxygen)
• Anaerobic — High intensity (without oxygen)

Aerobic exercise:

An example would be walking.
• Fat burning effects occur after 25 minutes 
• Low-stress type of exercise 

Anaerobic exercise:

An example would be HIIT

• You’re working out 20-40 minutes
• Fat burning effects occur 24-48 hours after the workout during sleep

Some barriers you may run into:

• What you eat 
• Sleep (you need sleep)
• Quantity of exercise 
• Intensity (needs to be adjusted to your recovery)
• Frequency 
• Recovery (the benefit of exercise occurs in the recovery phase)
• Stress
