But while running can help get you out of some sticky situations, we must answer the burning question on everyone’s mind: can you lose weight from running? But did you also know that you can lose weight by scratching your head, wiping your butt, and playing the piano.
Any time you move your body, you are burning calories, and burning calories means losing weight. Running on the other hand is harder and more intense than wiping you butt, so the calorie burn is MUCH higher(than butt wiping), which equates to faster weight loss. Now before you start bashing me, let me just say that I have nothing against running or marathon runners.
While running can help you lose weight, I simply don’t believe that running is worth the negligible calorie burn it produces, and too much running can result in muscle loss. Unless you want to exert large amounts of energy on something that provides little in return, then don’t start running in hopes of losing large amounts of weight.
I usually just recommend people to simply lift weight 2-3 times per week to maintain muscle and to use their diet to lose weight. But, if you really wanted some sort of extra activity besides weight lifting, then you could give HIIT(high intensity interval training) a shot. Hop on a treadmill and adjust the speed levels so that you are able to walk at a medium pace for 5 minutes. Performing HIIT every day can lead to overtraining, especially if you’re already doing intense lower body movements like squats and deadlifts. So there you go, a sample HIIT routine that is a trillion times better than conventional running.
If it’s necessary to burn more calories than you take in every day to lose weight, then running still remains the best way to do so, along with many other high intensity aerobic exercises.


The reason why many people don’t wanna run and look for better alternatives is because, even though anyone can do it, running is hard. HIIT is actually good from what I hear: I never tried it but maybe sometimes I will, just for the heck of it. And recommending just weight lifting and, if you really want, HIIT, is just wrong and misleading, imho. If you want to lose weight, the best way to do is through your diet and making sure you’re eating in a calorie deficit.
Running and hiit can both be used to assist in weight loss, but they aren’t 100% necessary. According to James Gavin, writer of ‘The Exercise Habit’, tennis can help the players develop a more tactical thinking and key features of a positive personality. As a professional tennis player, I assure you that the moves involved in this sport contribute to a better shape and to an extraordinary muscular and spiritual tonus.
But hey, even if you are not very good at tennis, just get out there with a friend and hit a few balls back and forth, stay on your toes and bounce around to keep your heart rate up. Tennis helps you achieve a better control of your body, through complex movement and a lot of ball sticking skills. The hand-eye coordination is constantly challenged, through timing and a lot of contact point. You get to burn more calories in the same amount of time as running, plus it won’t make you lose muscle.
And you’re right, the best exercise plan to lose weight is the one that fits your lifestyle. Weight lifting without some cardio won’t really work, and running without some weight lifting will give you legs of steel, but a flaccid upper body (not to mention you gain in stability, power and speed by training your upper body too).


The key here is to let your diet take care of the fat loss and to let the weight lifting preserve or build muscle.
Did you know that if you play for only 3 hours a week, you recharge your optimism, self-esteem; you alleviate depression, anxiety, stress and tension?
Scientists at the University of Illinois claim that playing tennis helps our brain generate connections between the nerves; hence it promotes a lifetime of good mental health.
Even more, last time when I played it, my pedometer indicated more calories loss than with the aerobic class, or with the spinning class. Side- to-side moves and up and back sprint sometimes outperforms the simple fitness from the gym class. Don’t believe those crazy marathon runners who say running is the greatest thing in the world. I even trained solo, which is something that even the running gurus say you should never do. If you like running, then go running, but don’t think that running is the only way to lose weight. If you’re 50 pounds overweight, I seriously doubt you can get lean by lifting weights 2-3 times a week alone. Perhaps the correct answer is to seek a balanced program that is right for you and practice moderation in all things.
