Choosing to get healthy and start exercising is one thing, but to actually take up a plan is something very different. When I first decided to start out exercising, I attempted to explore both of my choices, which included taking a look at my nearby health clubs and looking to purchase equipment which I would use at home. The harder I thought about joining a health club, the less I desired to really take action. Being a working dad, I desired to do something in which I didn’t need to go out. Since I was just beginning using an exercise routine, I researched into obtaining a cheap treadmill. Now that I’ve had my treadmill for around half a year, I wanted to share with you the advantages that I’ve experienced since my purchase.
Most of the time people Let’s work out sorely to loose wait and as soon as they begin seeing results they loose the motivation to put in as much effort as they did when they first began. If you want to loose weight, create an initial plan that will most likely be more aggressive and once you achieve your optimum weight, create a new plan that will help you sustain your optimum weight. A long term plan should be moderate and that is why most physical fitness experts advice that at least 3 days of exercise for a duration of 30 min to an hour in each session, is good enough. If you have the energy, drive and time to work out 5 to 6 days a week, that is fine too.
Compound exercises and free weights are the two recommended workout methods as they can hit multiple muscle groups in the upper and lower body in a time effective manner.
A fruit and vegetable diet takes the least energy for your body to consume, yet supplies the most nutrient-value in return. And since your body uses about 70% of its energy digesting food, it stands to reason that the ‘way of the super-fit vegan,’ should be to consume a diet mainly of raw fruits and vegetables.
How: For example, when performing the standing biceps curl, during the upward movement phase, only bring the bar halfway through the range of motion (Until your forearms are parallel to the floor). Perform three of these partial reps followed by one rep that covers the full range of motion. (Bringing the bar all the way up to your shoulders). Count the three partial reps and one full rep as one total rep and shoot for 10.
This experiment is not exact, but it doesn’t need to be either. It just needs to be consistent, so we can make an intelligent comparison between the three workouts. The point is, don’t worry about the exact numbers used here. Your caloric burn is different than mine, your heart rate is different than mine, and your fitness is different the mine. The conclusions that we draw are more important than the actual numbers used.
LSD training is the most common approach to cardio training in most commercial gyms. It’s often called steady state training, because you exercise at the same pace for your entire workout.
Anything that you enjoy doing as a workout can be incorporated into this method. I’ve done it with rope jumping, swimming, bicycling and many other things. Body weight calisthenics are good and it can even be done with weights, but if you were doing that I would suggest hiring a trainer to help you at least devise the program. Your fat busting workout doesn’t have to be long and boring and it definitely shouldn’t be cardio. Incorporate these methods into your workout and you will be happier and healthier for it.
