Not every kind of xeircese burns fat. Each kind of xeircese has a different effect. For example, there's a precise way to do aerobic / cardio xeircese so that you're sure you're burning the extra fat in your body and not just the sugar in your blood. If you want to be a perfectionist ask someone who studies sports sciences or medicine for more details.

Can you provide more information on this? I do to know anyone to ask, but I NEED to know I am getting the most fat burning possible out of my work outs. I am a beginner - have been going to the gym for about 5 months now, the first 3 months I went 5 days a week and the last two I have been going three times a week. Although I have developed tendinitis in my left shoulder and I start therapy next week. This only increases my need to burn as much fat as possible while doing cardio or any other exercise!
