If you’re trying to lose weight, you know that getting into the middle-to-high range of your target heart rate zone (about 65% to 85% of max heart rate) is important for burning calories. You also probably know that it’s easier to get your heart rate up when you’re jumping around.
But for some people, high impact exercise just isn’t an option. Some reasons you may have to avoid high impact are an aversion to high impact exercise, being a beginning exerciser, Being very overweight, Chronic problems like arthritis, osteoporosis, or stress fractures, Injuries in the joints, bones, or connective tissue, Pregnancy
While it’s important to have some type of impact for healthy bones, you don’t necessarily have to jump around to get an intense workout. Many low impact exercises can get your heart rate into your target heart rate zone. The catch is, you may have to work a little harder.
