Week 4: Choose your sport

 
Week 4: Choose your sport

Now it's time to take up the right sport for you. You need to choose a sport that 
you enjoy and you can fit into your schedule (classes at good times that are easy to get to, etc) and gives you a good physcial workout and tones your body.

Swimming burns 200-600 kcal per hour, is great for stamina and tones your body gently. Your body only weighs 20% of its land weight in the water, but it has to work against the resistance. This makes it ideal for people who are overweight.

Cycling
burns 300-600 kcal per hour. It works your leg muscles non-stop and is great for endurance. On flat ground, you can go gently and still burn lots of calories. 

Tennis
burns 350-600 kcal per hour. It's fun and sociable, but it's a serious calorie-burning sport and works lots of important muscle groups. Be careful not to injure yourself, though.

Running Good old-fashioned running works your lower limbs and rids you of a whopping 500 kcal per hour. Running gives you a long, vigorous workout that hones and sculpts your body. Invest in some decent trainers!
