8 Tips to Effective Workout
Sometimes it happens so that even when one eats ‘right’ and works out she or he doesn’t get fit. It might be the result of ineffective workout and the wrong ‘healthy’ diet. Then again our ideas of healthy and unhealthy, much and less vary. So here are some useful tips that will help you correct your diet plan and workout routine and coordinate the two for more effective results.
Limit Your Workout Time to 30-40 min
Long workouts are not as as effective as the 30-40-minute of good cardio and calorie-burning exercises mixed up with weight lift training. Working out high-intensity workouts for shorter period time is more effective rather than longer but low-intensity workouts.
Protein and Carbs
Proteins help muscles to build and rebuild after exercises. And carbohydrates give us fuel and energy to do high-intensity workouts. Lean meat, veggies and fruit as well as whole grains are great sources of proteins and carbs. Fats, by the way, are of very high importance too. Fat protects out inner organs from damage and temperature fluctuations while it also plays a great role in keeping us healthy.
Exercise at Slower Speed
Do not rush while training and exercising. First of all, you can hurt yourself. Then the muscles work harder when they are being contracted for a longer period of time.
Exercise in Circuits
Rest is important for muscle recovery. So instead of doing multiple sets of exercise in a row rest between the sets. This will allow your muscles rest
Change and Mix Workout Routine
Change your workout routine every two weeks to involve all muscles. While working out mix exercises. Add some cardio and weight lift training. Target various body parts not only those you consider to be problematic. Jumps with the rope and weight lifting help lose weight while curls and squats train certain muscles. If you want to lose weight and tone some body parts you still need to do a full-body workout. Only when the excess weight is gone will you be able to tone those problematic body parts.
Start With Warm Up and Lighter Weights
When starting a workout do a warm up. This will prepare your muscles and limbs for intensive training. When starting a weight lift training start with lighter weights and gradually increase them under the professional supervision. Do not try lifting heavy weights without proper training or you will injury your arm muscles, which requires long recovery.
Cardio That You Heart
There are many cardio trainings that are fun and pleasant as well as keep your heart rate up. Well, choose the one you really enjoy as it will be easier for you to do it and you won’t postpone or miss your workout. Running, cycling, swimming, hiking, and rowing as well as dancing are great cardio trainings.
Lift Weights While Balancing
When you sit and lift weights only one group of your muscles work. When you lift weights while on one leg or on a Swiss ball or simply standing even your whole body works.
