When it comes to fat burning exercises, the important thing to understand is your body actually burns the most fat when you're at rest. Literally you're burning the most fat when you're sleeping. That's not to say you should sleep if you want to lose weight, or even maintain your weight. But it's important to understand because a lot of time there's confusion, people have heard that if you do lower intensity exercises you're burning more fat. And to some degree that's true, but over all, it's about caloric expenditure. What kind of exercises can you do where you will burn the most calories. And it's also going to be probably a higher intensity exercise like running. Or even a high intensity way of doing your strength training that's gonna be more effective in terms of burning calories over all. And if you're taking in more calories than you're burning, that's where you're going to see problems maintaining your weight, or potentially even gaining weight. It's about creating that balance or even creating a deficit if your goal is weight loss. So choosing exercises that are high intensity, that are challenging, is really key to being successful at losing weight and maintaining weight.
