It’s something we all think or at some point in our lives.
Some follow through, some make excuses, and others just can't find the time.
Let’s face it, the most common thing people dislike about themselves is their weight.
We have all been there, we sort of know what we need to do but life always seems to get in the way.
We are here to tell you where to start and how to start –
First and foremost, please do not think you need to attend the gym every day to see results.
This is where most go wrong or some don’t even start, because they feel that they cannot be 100% committed…… Everyday number one is not good – the body does require rest days to grow lean muscle and repair. Five days a week does not even need to happen.
What if I told you that so much can be accomplished in as little as three days a week in 45–60-minute sessions. Imagine spending just three hours a week on yourself. Crazy huh, - To make you feel better about yourself, gain more confidence, have more energy and most important practicing self-care.
To many people don't start fitness programs because they think it requires too much work
When starting a fitness program, it’s highly recommended to start with two to three days a week - run some overall circuit workouts to get the body ready for what's coming and start learning new things. This means one exercise per body part, 3 sets of 12-15 and done.
Then you can start dividing your workouts - the most common is a three-day split:
Chest and Tri
Back and Bi
Leg and shoulder
This covers the entire body for the week – giving your body enough time to heal and repair.
If things seem to be going well, you can always change the training split around. Keep in mind there is no wrong or right way in fitness when it comes to style of training – everybody is different, and everyone’s body requires something different.
Some terms you may use are.
Super set – drop set – positive and negative or circuit training to name a few – which well get into on another post! You can follow the same workout plan and apply some of these terms and you’ll get a whole different type of work out. It’s that simple!
Cardio can also be added – and I do not mean hours on the treadmill, it takes 20 min for the heart rate to fully take into effect so anywhere from 20-30 min tops is fine.
Finally, start cleaning up the diet. By this I mean get rid of starchy breads, sugar food and dairy and really start to focus on your portions – Try getting 5-6 small meals in a day to really rev up the metabolism – always remember you can't drive a car on an empty tank of gas so neither can you – you put the wrong gas in the car it runs like crap and your body is the same way with food.
Time to focus on you – A little bit goes a long way!
