How Much Exercise to Lose Weight? Interesting!!!

how much exercise to lose weight
While checking the GolfGym Twitter page this morning, I came across an article written by Coach Calorie titled, "How Much Exercise to Lose Weight - Not That Much".  Given that I am slightly calorically challenged myself...I was drawn to the article.
It illuminates the fact that in our endeavoring to lose weight... too much exercise can in fact be detrimental to the outcome you are seeking. He writes: 
"When it comes to dieting and trying to determine how much exercise to lose weight, a “less is more” approach is warranted. Can you lose weight working out 6 days a week alternating strength training with cardio? Absolutely. Is it necessary? Not at all.
Focus your workouts around what’s going to give you the biggest return on your time and effort. Cardio will burn some calories, but it’s not needed to lose weight. Strength training, on the other hand, is mandatory for successful fat loss."
There are two reasons for sharing this article:
1. Many golfers (including me) can afford to lose a few lb's...if you know what I mean. So, this information is helpful.
2. This idea carries over into working on your "Golf Body" (as Coach Joey D calls it) and becoming "Golf Fit".

Getting "Golf Fit" should be thought of the same way. It doesn't take much to start a program and begin to see results on the golf course fairly quickly. Some simple exercises and stretches can go a long way to playing better golf. Programs loaded with too many/too difficult exercises turn off most golfers.

The bigger message here is that if you are trying to lose weight or get a little more fit for golf, make it simple to start and build it up as you gain confidence and strength. You will definitely see the results on the scale and on the golf course.

At GolfGym, we try to make it simple...and with Coach Joey D, we make it easy to follow and it makes sense.

Fast walking: At the same time as walking is in itself a good aerobic work out, speedy walking is even better for burning fat. Be sure you actually stretch first and warm up with usual walking. Once you begin your faster walking pace, try to keep as much speed as possible for as extended as you be able to. If you get fatigued, try doing intervals of speedy walking followed by tiny periods of slower walking.
