Even though many types of exercises require energy, aerobics are known to use a lot of energy. Aerobics utilizes the large muscle groups in a rhythmic, sustained and continuous movement. These muscles require oxygen to produce energy.
When oxygen is combined with stored fat, this produces energy which eventually powers the body musculature.
These include brisk walking, biking, dancing, jogging and swimming among others. Lengthy aerobic movements require more energy and thus large amounts of calories are used.
A routine of aerobics will benefit you with cardiac-respiratory endurance. This is the capability of your lungs, heart, blood vessels and tissues to utilize oxygen so as to produce the necessary energy needed by the body.
Aerobic exercise will help in eliminating excess fats.
Also supplement aerobics with stretching and muscle exercises. The more your muscles become strong, the longer you will exercise with less injury.
Also known as resistance training, strength building increases the proportion of your body muscles. A good example is weight lifting.

If your goal is to lose a lot of pounds, then you need to work out your weight loss exercise for five times every week. Increase your work out minutes per exercise as well. Always work out vigorously to cause an increase in your breathing and heart rate; this will ensure that you are burning as much calories as possible.
Combine different aerobic exercises every day, combine those that you love doing and those that you don't. This will keep you going without getting fed up with one particular exercise.
Lastly, avoid skipping too many days without workouts as this might make you loose the benefits of exercise. It will also keep you out of control track. If you have to skip some days, ensure that you gradually work out back to your normal routine.
