Exercise Plans Q & A

 

WE ACCEPT MOST MAJOR INSURANCE PLANS INCLUDING MEDICARE

Increased physical activity is an essential component of a comprehensive weight-reduction strategy for overweight and obese adults who are otherwise healthy. One of the best predictors of success in the long-term management of overweight and obesity is the ability to develop and sustain an exercise program.

For a given individual, the intensity, duration, frequency, and type of physical activity will depend on existing medical conditions, degree of previous activity, physical limitations, and individual preferences. Referral for additional professional evaluation may be appropriate, especially for individuals with more than one of the above extenuating factors.

What is an exercise plan?

A personalized exercise plan involves exercises designed and modified specifically for you to enhance your overall health and often as part of a weight loss program to help you achieve a healthy weight.

Working with a medical professional like Dr. Suri who has experience creating individualized exercise programs can help you achieve faster weight loss and offers a number of benefits.

How does exercise contribute to weight loss?

Exercise can play a big role in weight loss. Dr. Suri makes exercise an integral and necessary part of every weight loss program. Exercise helps you to burn off calories, and certain foods that can lead to fat storage. Burning off calories prevents you from storing them as fat and helps you to build your muscles and gain more energy.

Exercise works best when combined with a nutrient-dense diet for weight loss.

What are some of the different types of exercise?

There are different types of exercise, and you’ll achieve the best results from using a strategic plan that fluctuates among these different types. Try to pick exercises you enjoy to help you stay on track with your routine and avoid exercise becoming mundane.

Aerobic

Aerobic or cardiovascular exercise is important because it increases your heart rate and gets your blood pumping. Aerobic exercises can include jogging, cycling, brisk walking, running, swimming, and even dancing. You could also opt for machines like a treadmill or elliptical.

Weight training

Weight training helps you shed fat and build muscle. It’s advantageous because it allows you to zone in and target certain muscle groups and burn calories.

Other types of exercise include yoga and alternative ways of stretching and strengthening your muscles.

What are the benefits of exercise?

Exercise has many benefits, including:

  • Dispersing inflammation
  • Improving your sleep quality
  • Improving your health overall
  • Enhancing cognitive functioning
  • Reducing your risk of falls and balance problems
  • Strengthening muscles and enhancing endurance
  • Reducing your risk of certain diseases, such as heart disease
  • Helping your body manage blood sugar and insulin levels by burning off sugar
  • Improving your mental health and mood by the release of feel-good chemicals
  • Boosting metabolism and weight loss and how many calories you burn each day
