3 Exercise Mistakes Women Do That Make Weight Loss Hard If Not Impossible

Women make 3 common exercise mistakes that pretty much make their exercise programs useless if their goal is to lose weight. I'm going to show you how to avoid these mistakes so that weight loss becomes a lot more easy for you.

Exercise Mistakes

1. Walking

Walking is fine and dandy, but if you're looking for immediate weight loss you need to stop doing it “the normal way". What I mean by that is you are probably either walking on a treadmill or street that is flat.


To make walking a great fat loss exercise, you NEED TO walk on an incline. I suggest use a treadmill that inclines. Incline it 15-20 degrees. Then you walk on it for 20, 25, or 30 minutes each time you're on it.

Even though that is NOT much of an incline, it makes a BIG BIG difference to your body. I'd say this 1 small adjustment makes walking 3-5 times faster for weight loss (if you did it).

2. Using an exercise bike

If you're sitting down, then it's NOT an effective weight loss exercise. It's just not efficient. Our bodies aren't made to sit down. They're made for standing up and moving. When you sit down, you're locked into a position that isn't ideal for weight loss. If you're main goal is to lose weight, do it standing up!

3. Jogging

Jogging wastes away your muscles. That's bad because muscles burn more fat than body fat. So if you lose muscle, you're unintentionally slowing down your metabolism. A better way to make sure this doesn't happen is to alternate the intensity levels between running and walking.

The intensity of running greatly facilitates fat burning (the muscles need immediate energy) while the walking is a way that you are still exercising, but it's used as an “active rest" since it's easy.

You can do this on a treadmill or outdoors.

I recommend that you walk for about 30 seconds at a time then run hard for 10-15 seconds. Don't worry about how fast you're running. Just run hard “for you". It's all about the intensity, not necessarily how fast you're actually running. Do this for a total of 20 minutes.

So if you avoid these 3 exercise mistakes and instead do what I mentioned, your problems losing weight will be a thing of the past.
