Ultimately, the best exercise to lose weight is the one that you enjoy enough to do consistently. However, when it comes to the best exercise for weight loss, some workouts burn fat and build muscle more efficiently than others – and these two elements are crucial for anyone looking to change their body composition.
We asked Dr Samantha Wild, GP at Bupa UK, and personal trainers Paddy Colman and Joe Corrie, head trainers at Core Collective, to share their top weight loss exercise workout options – and talk us through the various factors that can affect how individuals lose weight through exercise.
The 10 best exercises to lose weight
When we talk about weight loss as a goal, what we really mean is fat loss. It isn’t uncommon for exercisers to lose fat and drop clothing sizes without experiencing any change in body weight. This is because exercise – in all forms, although some to a greater extent than others – helps to build lean muscle, which weighs more than fat. However, muscle tissue also burns more calories, even when you aren’t moving.
