This is going to be the first in a series of articles reviewing some of my favorite exercises that are fantastic at warming up the body and getting you to burn fat fast. These are to exercise is that I regularly use with my weight loss and personal training clients. Now of course always remember before you start any exercise program to consult your medical doctor or chiropractor to make sure that these exercises are safe for you to perform. If you suffer from low back disc herniations or sciatica nerve pain I would definitely not exercises until your medical and health practitioners have given you the ok.

Okay let's get started now! For the first exercise I'm going to recommend using an elliptical machine or cross-trainer. Stand upright on the machine and pedal forward with your legs to push the footpads while simultaneously pushing and pulling the handles of the machine with your arms. Doing anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes on an elliptical machine is a great way to get the muscles and joints of the body warmed up and to get the blood flowing as well.

The second exercise that I'm going to recommend is jogging in place. Now this exercise is very simple but there is no better exercise than this for increasing your body's temperature, increasing your heart rate and for burning fat and losing weight. Beginning standing upright start to jog in place, lifting your knees and swinging your arms. Make sure to keep your arms and elbows close to your body. The key to this exercise to trying to remain in one spot the entire time. You can do this exercise for about 5 to 7 minutes for great warm-up. Of course you can do it longer if you would like.

So there you have it two of my favorite exercises warm ups. You can also do these exercises on their own just longer and at moderate intensities for a fact burning exercise routine in and of themselves.
