What exercises do you do to keep the pounds (ok…kilos in my case) off? Any favourite routines and tips to share? Share the love, guys!
I find that running has been instrumental in helping me lose weight. It’s a great cardiovascular exercise, moderate to high impact, relieves tension (for me anyways) and keeps my BGs under great control. It’s not particularly good for my joints, I hear, so I make sure I do some stretching and conditioning work too. I enjoy pilates which has NOT helped me to lose weight, but I find it good, mentally as I need to really concentrate - something I find very difficult to do! And it’s slowly training up my flexibility and strength, especially in my abs.
Swimming is something else I do regularly as it gives me a great cardio workout AND gets all the muscles in my body moving. Also helps control BGs reasonably well.
