The second one is the strength training with weights and finally intelligent cardio. To successfully loose weight a balanced combination of all three is essential.
The first thing to remember is that, exercise has to be done regularity to be effective. You need to commit yourself to it. An integral part of exercise is diet. You need to eat the right foods in addition to doing the exercises. There are a few basic principles that has to be present in your food habit:

When it comes to losing weight, no singular exercise can be enough. Strength training with weights are very good for developing lean muscles. It involves a lot of pushing, pulling, rotating that works on the compound joints like hips, knees and shoulders. It also increases the metabolic rate of the body, burning the fat in an accelerated way.
Cardio vascular exercise needs to be done in a gradual manner. An extreme cardio exercise is never a good way to go about. To increase the cardio vascular status, the best place to start is walking. At first there should be simple walking for thirty minutes or so. And as the time passes walking can be replaced with jogging and eventually walking. In order to work with instruments, stationary bikes or treadmills can be a smart choice.
Exercise is absolutely mandatory to loose weight and keep the fat away. But it does not always need to be an extreme one.
