It is not only possible, but also necessary to play sports with a lot of weight. I told Pravda readers how exactly. Ru personal trainer DDX Fitness Mitino Konstantin Gevurkov.

“For obese people, especially those who have not exercised for a long time, cardio training is best at the initial stage. Start with walking. In the gym or just a walk, it doesn’t matter. It is important that it be done regularly. Start with 15-20 minutes and after a month, increase the time to an hour,” the expert notes.

For cardio in the gym, it is preferable to use an exercise bike or an elliptical trainer, since when exercising on them there is no shock load on the knee joint. It is better to avoid jumping rope and jumping on pedestals. In the future, you can move on to more intense activities – interval cardio and strength training. Strength training is good for losing weight, since energy consumption in the process of performing exercises and restoring the body is quite high.

In addition to training, it is important to remember to normalize your diet and create a calorie deficit.
