Calories Burned Chart by sports activity

If you haven't exercised in a while, slowly work your way up to a more demanding regimen. This is especially important for high-impact activities such as running and certain types of aerobic, which put extra stress on your joints. Remember to stretch before and after working out to prevent injuries.

Strength building exercises not only burn calories; they increase muscle mass. Increasing your muscle to fat ration will increase your metabolism, even when you are not exercising.

If you haven't been exercising in a long time, read this !

If you haven't been exercising in a long time, then remember the concept of homeostasis. The magnitude and speed of change determines the amount of resistance to change due to homeostasis.

If you decide to run five miles on the first day after years of being a couch potato, your mind may be willing, but your body will not be pleased.

If you start a program too quickly or vigorously, then you might become injured, overly tired, and uncomfortable, all of which may discourage and dishearten you.

How to Increase Metabolism

Lean body tissue (muscle) has a faster metabolism than fat tissue. When you exercise moderately, you lose fat tissue more than lean body tissue, so your metabolism increases.

This is part of the reason why moderate exercise helps to increase your metabolism. And as your metabolism increases, you burn off calories faster, even when you're not exercising.
