Have you ever felt hopeless because you are doing all the right things to get in shape and become healthier, but the results are not as visible as quickly as you wanted?
Yes, we’ve all been through it. You should never expect to magically lose weight and shape your body in the same second when you enter a gym and start eating healthier. However, you can speed up this slow process in several ways.
- Push your own limits!
If you want to get the most out of the exercise, focus on intensity rather than duration. HIT (high intensity training) will help you lose weight really fast. If your goal is maximum efficiency you should be sweaty and exhausted at the end of the training. Otherwise, you’re not working hard enough.
- Focus on working out the whole body!
Exercises like squats, push-ups, sit-ups and pull-ups will help you quickly get in shape rather than exercise based on one group of muscles. Exercises that activate the entire body are functional and helpful in performing everyday activities, such as lifting a luggage or playing with your kids at the playground.
If you’ve ever played sports, you probably remember that jumping jacks were an essential part of the training. Jumps and sprints are great because they will improve your running stamina, so you will be able to practice any type of sport that you love. Also they will help you burn some fat and lose weight, so be sure to include in your daily fitness routine.
- Stop making excuses!
No matter if your gym is far away, or you do not have sports equipment, or you only have 15 minutes to exercise – you can still do a good workout if you really want it. You will be amazed how quickly you will be put in order when exercising becomes your constant. Fast walk or run is something we all can afford, and even a short training will speed up your metabolism and start the process of fat burning, and you will feel much better. Of course the key is to quit whining and be persistent by doing it every day.
