Fat tissue is a normal and regular part of the human body. It is located almost everywhere in the body, it has some sort of defensive role in the organism, and it is also used as energy source. The problem occurs when its amount becomes something much too big for the body. In those situations, it becomes stored, usually more in the abdominal area, especially in men. This stored fat tissue, if it continues growing, might cause certain cardiovascular problems and some of those issues might be even life threatening. This is why elimination of excessive fat tissue is very important.
Choosing the right fat burning exercise for you is essential for approaching the weight loss problem properly. This means that it might be pointless to try to run if the body is extremely overweighted. Tiredness will come easily, the body will be exhausted, heart rate will go up extremely etc. For this person, a simple walk will be more than enough. But only in the beginning and until the body becomes used to being active, and then the intensity can be changed, first to fast pace walking and then to slow pace jogging. This period might last only a week or two for some, but it might last for a month or even more for some extreme cases.
A proper physical activity for burning excessive fat tissue is definitely cardio workout. But lately, there are a lot of experts who claim that for better final effect, combining cardio and muscle strengthening routines should be done. Cardio is excellent for elimination of excessive fat cells throughout the entire body. This happens because cardio exercises activate most of the muscles in the organism (take mentioned jogging for example). Muscle strengthening forms are more area focused, but they also require certain amount of energy for subduing the lifted weight (no matter if it is additional weight or only the body of the practitioner). In the end, energy consumption should be bigger with this combination then with performing only one workout type.
