2 Exercise Tips:

Low intensity cardio before breakfast!

You've heard of workout out on a empty stomach but most people don't know how to do it properly! Low intensity cardio (75-80% of your maximum) is great for fat burning when performed on an empty stomach. Do 45mins or cardio before breakfast for maximum results.

Lift weights to lose weight!

It's a common myth that women who start lifting weights will end up looking like female bodybuilders. This couldn't be further from the truth! Women's low levels of testosterone make it almost impossible to build up "male like" muscles. Instead, women who lift weights gain muscle tone.

The more muscle your body has, the more calories you burn...even when you're sleeping! So doing weights is an excellent way for women to increase their metabolism to help keep weight off for the long term.
