Everybody reaches a stage in their life that requires them to workout. Here are some vital tips to start that long forgotten fitness regime:
Set goals that are achievable and that are within a reasonable time frame. This may seem something easy but it is not as it looks. One should learn to appreciate little gains and get motivated by them. Keep a record of the progress so as to learn of the situation. When one gets satisfied with what they do, the situation might get out of hand while one sticks to a notion that everything is fine.
Come up with a decent set of scale with tan ability to measure body fat. Get access to an electronic body scale so that it is possible to know of the progress. This will let one know how much body fat is lost or the gain of the muscles.
Watch the diet one is on. Keep off from saturated fats plus carbohydrates; take a little for the body’s normal functions. Even for weight gainers take low fat proteins such as meat from fish or poultry but not dairy products.
Load the muscles as the fats are being lost. Put pressure on the body parts where muscles build up. Exercise those parts twice or three times a week.
One should take in food according to their exercises. Have a pre-exercise protein of about 20grams protein. Have some sports drinks if the exercise is to take more than an hour or if it is too intensive. Within 30 minutes of a workout take more protein and carbohydrates. Do not skip on carbohydrates if the workout is done 4 or more times in a week.
After a four or six period of workout, take a break of about a week from the normal exercise routine. This does not mean that one should keep off completely but one should take half of their normal routine or a lesser intensive routine than the usual.
Take up some cardio exercises. Some bodybuilders fear taking this routine since they are in fear that this might reduce the growth of muscle. What they do not know is that this routine is great in burning calories and fats. Take it up and if you are fear do not do it for more than 50 minutes per session.
One might not get to their point of set goals after a period of exercise. The best thing is to change the intensity of the program, since the body responds to change of intensity and routine.
Try switching the time for workout, but this does not guarantee any changes but may be to some.
Get plenty of rest and sleep. Do not over train since the body hormones might be stressed and cause havoc with the muscle development.
