Cycling on a stationary bike machine or riding a bicycle outside, in either of the cases, pedaling thrice a week for 30 to 45 minutes per ride helps to get rid of the overall body fat.

Swim for whole body workout

Swimming is considered as one of the great exercises that work on the muscles throughout the whole body. As a result, it burns a lot of body fat, especially from the upper part. The basic freestyle stroke can be combined with other strokes such as backstroke, breast, and butterfly in order to gain maximum benefits.

However, the duration for swimming depends upon the capacity of the swimmer, but for a beginner, it is advised to start with swimming for 20 to 30 minutes thrice a week.

Go for a walk

For those who are suffering from knee issues or any leg problems or lack the endurance for intense or high impact workout, walking is a great cardio option. A 20- 45-minute walk for twice or thrice a week helps a lot in melting down the upper body.

For this kind of workout, a person always has a choice of walking outside or on a treadmill in a gym or on a track.

# Natasha Noel

I've always been an extreme person. When I would drink, I would drink till I passed out. When I would smoke, I would smoke till my lungs bled. When I was depressed I would starve myself. When I am depressed I over eat and puke and then eat some more. When I would dance, I would dance till my legs couldn't move. When I work, I work without a break. Non stop. No food, no water no human can break my concentration. When I would workout I would, kill my body. I would constantly break myself mentally and emotionally. My shortest relationship has been a year and a half. I deadened myself to never feel anything again good, bad or ugly. I over analysis every situtation. I would constantly worry about what people thought of me. Of how I needed to behave or act. Of how I constantly needed to please people to make them like me… And I needed to be validated. Where I never did what I wanted or tried anything new because I thought 'i would dissappoint someone.' I can never do anything for 'fun'. I never had balance. I never allowed my self to breathe. I never allowed myself to experience anything because I calculated everything. I measured my life so closely so that I would never fail. So that I would never feel pain. Thereby I was ALWAYS comfortable. But how much ever you try to protect yourself, life will throw something at your direction and you'll never be prepared for it. In the process of my over analysis I realised I'm not actually living, I'm just surviving. So I'm trying to reconstruct my mechanics in my brain to find my balance. Balance between the wars within myself. Balance between not holding on to my identity of pain. Balance between letting go of what does not serve me anymore. Balance between making the world a happier place. But more importantly making myself happy. 💙 Practise daily. Stay safe. Stay humble.🙏❤ Much love😊🙏 #ashtanga #Dancer #ashtangaYoga #yogaeverywhere #yoga #Muscles #yogaeverydamnday #yogalove #Abs #yogadaily #yogajunkie #igyogafamily #yogaanywhere #yogajourney #fit #fitness #FitWomen #fitfam #fitspo #fitnessaddict #fitnessfreak #HealthyLiving #HealthyLifestyle #passion #dreams #NeverGiveUp
