Whatever weight loss exercises you choose from the following, try to get your heart rate up to about 70 percent of your safe maximum. You can do that by using this formula: 220 minus your age equals your Maximum Safe Heart Rate. Keep it at this rate for a solid half-hour. Don?t go over the 85 percent rate for more than a couple of minutes at a time. Of course, heart rate doesn?t figure into strength builders such as weigh lifting.

Note: The calories-burned figures that follow are for a 110-pounder. A 154-pounder should add on another 28 percent to that number, while a 198-pounder should add 55 percent.

  • Walking: Calories burned at 2 mph is 145 per hour; 3 mph is 235 per hour; at 5 mph is 435 per hour.

Without variety, humans get bored and stale. They stop reaching. Boredom makes human beings quit.
