Lots more than that, punching a heavy bag is only about 10% of it, you cant imagine the fitness you would get from it....

Just go and try to jumprope for 3 minutes straight, bet you cant do it without stopping...

iffy

1. eating properly is the #1 way to lose the weight...
2. interval training (cardio) best on the exercise side
3. I can't tell you how many articles I've read stating how effective weight training is for burning fat (especially with shorter breaks between sets, etc.) as it keeps your metabolism elevated for MUCH longer afterwards than straight cardio. up to 36 hours later according to some.

personally I try and use intervals (sprint, walk sprint walk, etc) It's shown to be far more effective at improving your conditioning and losing weight.

unless you're an ectomorph, (which it sounds like you arent)

diet is the biggest thing here. you can hit the gym every day, work more cardio in

but if you go home and eat the exact same thing (though, probably more; since you're going to be hungrier from working more) with just a few more apple slices and a broccoli or two nothing major is going to change.

after a diet change comes the real work, starting with light weight high repitition stuff with interval cardio

not tryna be a dick jake, just how it is; gotta pay to play! food is like our mod money when it comes to losing weight.


case and point, a friend of mine 5"10, 290 hit the gym with us every day for three months straight, we forced him into interval cardio and all... he lost a grand total of 5-8lbs

once we cut his diet from having a sumo omlette after every gym session and cut his carbs, he lost 20lbs over the next two months

I know snacking can contribute to a few pounds of fat throughout the year. Try not to snack as much between meals and drink plenty of water. Water rehydrates and cleanses your body.

As for working out, Go out and have some fun. Go and explore on your bike and lift weights as the previous posters have said. Make it fun too, biggest reason why people stop working out is because they get bored of it and it's not fun.

Been a while, but I thought I'd update this thread.

We moved to South Ms in June of '14 and one of the friends I made happens to have a degree in physical health.
She convinced me to try portion control and healthy eating for 3 weeks, in those 3 weeks I lost 13 LBS.
So I decided to make it a lifestyle, and I'm very happy thus far.

3-4 weeks ago she asked if I wanted to start working out a few times a week, after the first week we switched to an every other day workout schedule and I've stuck with it until last week.
Since I started back to college our schedules don't allow us to work out together except on the weekends, but my sister and I workout together during the week so we can keep motivated.

From August 31st, 2014 to January 20th, 2015 I lost a total of 52 lbs, which is several pants sizes, and one shirt size.

My current goals are to start running (We have sprints incorporated into the workouts, but I'd like to be able to run distance) and continue the current workouts until I can do full pushups without "worming".

One of the best things I did was cut almost all drinks and raise my water intake, I haven't had a soda since new years eve, and I cut sweet tea out of my diet in October (In July I was drinking close to a gallon a day, and the gallon of tea we make has almost 1 cup of sugar in it).

I was going to post tips but it sounds like you are on your way. The change in diet and activity seem to be treating you well.

Glad to hear that after analyzing your intake you have made appropriate steps to cut certain things out.

With the results you have already seen and realizing that this is possible, i wish you the best.

Just remember its not just about how much you can lift or how far you run but doing these things with PROPER form.

Glad to hear that you made a decision to better yourself and hopefully make this long term.

Thanks!!!
Yes, the first thing my trainer taught me when we started working out was "it doesn't matter how many you can do or how fast you can do it if you aren't doing it properly".
