10 Pointers To Improve Your Workout Results

Sep 9, 2008
Others perceive it wrongly as to how many hours to spend for workout. They say the longer, the more effective it is.

This is untrue in that fitness results are not gauged on the longevity of hours spent at the gym. There are factors that one has to consider so that workout effectiveness is grasped.

These steps will guide you on your journey towards staying in shape permanently:

1. There can never be any better to workout in less number of minutes with higher intensity of execution especially with resistance training.

If you spend two hours of workout, it doesn't follow that you have greater effectiveness than those who spend only for 45 minutes. It will depend on the degree of your execution and how intense your routines are.

2. If you are a neophyte, take your routines gradually because abrupt execution can just tear your muscles away. High intensity routines do not fit beginners but veterans.

Start from slow to fast if you are capable of tolerating already. You will step as far as speed, weight resistance and minutes of execution in no time.

3. Protein-rich foods are good to develop muscles but overloading yourself with some can trigger your weight to increase.

4. You need to be not hydrated prior to workout hours but it isn't advisable to drink water immediate before you start your cardio exercise because it takes a few hours for the body to obtain it.

5. It doesn't follow that carbohydrates make you gain weight. Our body also requires carbohydrates to be burnt during workout.

Maintain an adequate amount of food intake that your body needs but do not overload because that's the start of weight gain.

6. Healthy shakes can hasten your development of muscles during strength training because they have amino acids.

It is also suggested that you take a small amount of protein-rich or carbohydrate-rich snack 1 to 2 hours before working out. If your body either too hungry or overly stuffed, you cannot execute your routines appropriately.

7. In weight lifting, it is more effective to do it gradually but release speedily. As you raise the dumbbell or barbell gradually upward, you are actually increasing your chance of developing muscles.

8. Beginners should carry light weights while those who've been working out quite long can manage heavy weights. Heavier weights are more effective in creating your best form though.

9. You are to choose which cardio exercise fits your interest and capacity. It's not good to be using the machines or join the aerobics which you don't like.

10. You can combine routines after a long while. Sticking out with the same line-up for a longer period can become monotonous and boring. Try exploring and diversifying.

It's best to consider these pointers before getting started with your fitness program. They only seek to give you the most appropriate and best approaches in your daily gym time.
