When it comes to finding the perfect fitness plan for you, there is a lot you can learn from experienced professional trainers.
These little tips will help you put together a much better workout routine and fitness plan, while at the same time improving your quality of life more than you could ever imagine.
1. Start slow and organize yourself.
a. Make small changes. If you are new to fitness training, start little by little. Gradually introduce activities and changes to your day.
b. Plan ahead. When you have time to spare, plan your fitness schedule for the week. You will be able to do it more efficiently.
2. Intensify your workout.
- Work out harder, and you will burn more. A hard, intensive workout using some home gym equipment will keep you burning calories for hours even after you leave the gym.
- Start your day with exercise. Do your fitness routine first thing in the morning, and you will not have to make room for it in your busy schedule. It will also be much more intense and effective.
3. Focus on your inner body and mind, and enjoy it.
- Fitness starts from the inside. Working out will improve your physical appearance, but that should not be your reason to do it. You do it to be healthy.
- Meditate. Your mind is part of your body –don’t leave it behind. Re-connecting to your source will give you peace of mind and heal emotional wounds.
- Do the things you like. Working out does not have to be a self-imposed obligation; not if you find something you really like to do.
4. Don’t procrastinate, just do it. And do it well.
- Don’t give yourself unrealistic goals, but stick to your plan as much as possible. Share your goals with friends: it will keep you motivated.
- Combine cardio and strength training. Your workout will be shorter and more effective.
- Picture your goal, then break it down into smaller goals. Step by step, you will get where you want.
5. Pay attention to your posture, your diet and your commitment.
- Watch your feet. Proper foot placement is paramount to good balance and spinal alignment.
- Eat well. Eat clean, unprocessed food – fruit and vegetables, lean meat, good fat and grains. Think of food as fuel, not a reward for your cravings.
- Set a two-day rule: Don’t go for more than two days without training. Stick to that rule no matter what you do and where you go.
If you do this well, your strength endurance will certainly increase and then all you will need to do is repeat this circuit two to four times.
