2. Interval training

Interval training alternates between short, high intensity bursts of activity with periods of rest and recovery in between. Interval training uses the body’s two energy-producing systems: the aerobic and the anaerobic. This is one of the most effective ways to not just lose weight but lose weight effectively with results.

3. Swimming

Swimming is the perfect exercise and leisure activity. The buoyancy of the water supports the entirety of your body and takes the strain off painful joints, so you can move them more easily and with fluidity. Research has also found that swimming can also improve your mental state and put you in a better mood.

5. Kegel exercise

Kegel exercises are not one of help you lose weight, nor does it help your appearance look better, rather they help a different part of your body- the pelvic floor muscles. The floor muscles that support your bladder. Research has proven that strong pelvic floor muscles can go a long way toward preventing lack of self-control. Though this is an exercise which is told to be used mostly by women, men can equally benefit from them too. While many women are familiar with Kegels, these exercises can benefit men too.
