Below you will find three exercise moves that you should try:

Exercise #1: Cardio – Doing intervals can be especially effective at raising your metabolic rate and burning fat. It can also produce an afterburn, meaning you’ll continue to burn calories after exercising. To do an interval workout, alternate steady movement (brisk walk) with faster movement (moderate jog). Aim for 20 to 30 minutes at least three times a week.

Exercise #2: Strength Training – Building muscle revs up your metabolism. Even at rest, muscle burns four times as many calories as fat, so the more muscle you have, the more you’ll burn. Do at least two weight workouts per week.

Exercise #3: NEAT Movement – NEAT Movement is nonexercised activity thermogenesis, the calories expended by fidgeting during a meeting or running to the water fountain. So stroll down the hall at work to talk to your co-worker, hit a museum instead of a movie, or go to a store instead of ordering online.

Simply put, if you incorporate these three exercise moves to engage nearly every muscle group in the body, then you can burn more calories while exercising and long after your workout is over.
