5 Great Tips For Fitness
Prior to starting any form of fitness, especially, if it has been some time since your last visit, please consult your doctor and health professional. Don’t rush in and start lifting heavy weights or ride a marathon…The point is what.
1. Get a fitness program that best suits you. Every person is different and as such you will need a program designed specifically for your needs. Always consult a qualified trainer to ensure that the fitness program will not hurt you and is designed with your goal in mind. If your aim is to shape and tone your body, then there is no need in lifting heavy weights, which creates bulk. If your fitness program has not been designed specifically for you, it may lead to frustration and possible injuries.
2. Set realistic targets and timelines. You will become frustrated if your goal is to be competing in the Mr. Universe Body Building Championship within 1 month of starting. Make sure that the body you prefer in a period of time is achievable and realistic. Your selected program should also be practical and not give you false hopes.
3. Keep to your approved workout schedule. Repeating the same sets of exercises and same weight without getting your muscles to work harder will not give satisfactory results. Your personal trainer or yourself should record your daily results and mark the progress you have made. A daily log will also assist in motivating you towards your set goal. By keeping track of your progress, it helps to build confidence of where you have been and where you wish to go.
4. Perform a set of exercises in 10 repetitions. Every number that was accomplished is called a repetition. Try to make every repetition with less momentum as much as possible. The lesser the momentum, the harder your muscles work. And the harder they work, the bigger they become. Once again this depends upon your goal and aims.
5. Be flexible and perform a variety of exercises. Every exercise program should have a variety. You can change your exercises, goals and sets every month to keep you motivated and on the go. Communicate with your personal trainer or instructor regularly. You and your Instructor may decide to include skipping sessions, sand dunes, beach walks and obstacle courses, all designed to increase fitness and create a variety of activities for you.
Not all programs work for all types of people. There is no 1 workout that is best for everyone. But you learn from experienced people. Learn to acknowledge blocks and demonstrate self-discipline, keep yourself motivated and work harder everyday and add variety. Above all else, have fun and stay motivated and positive.
Until Next Time…
