Easy Workout Tips for Beginners

Dec 22, 2007
Are you a beginner and want some easy tips to workout?

If so, let me tell you, it takes lot of dedication, willpower and patience. Along with this, you also require a lifelong commitment of time and effort. Here are a few easy tips which would help you to workout easily.

Have high quality shoes and avoid your self from getting hurt.

Make sure that you are wearing comfortable clothing.

Consult a doctor-If you have any medical conditions, injuries, illness, diabetes, hypertension or any Heart Illness, its better to check up with your doctor before you start lifting weights.

Start of slowly-Doing too many exercises too early can lead you to unexpected injuries. So make it a habit to start gently with a simple exercise and gradually increase the amount you do.

Plan your diet-The most essential thing while starting a fitness program is food. Try to understand how different kinds of food can affect you in different ways. I mean to say, understand what happens to you when you consume one bowl of chicken compared to a bowl of raw veggie.

Choose a right gym which is well equipped and hygienic.

Find a good trainer who can motivate you to work hard.

Exercises alone will not work- To be fit you need to follow a good diet. The combination of a healthy diet and exercise are very essential to be fit.

No workout when you are tired- Do not workout when you are exhausted or when you are in pain. Give your body enough time to relax or you will end up damaging your muscles.

Warming Up- Warm-ups are nothing but walking, jumping around, dancing and some stretches. Stretches include calf stretches, Achilles stretches, leg extensions, hip stretches, quad stretches etc. These are just to put you in good mood. Every exercise activity requires warming up. This allows your muscles to awake up and start receiving the blood they require and avoid injury.

Weight lifting- If you are not sure of how to start with weight lifting program then it is better to have a personal trainer who is there to tell you what to do and what not to.

Start lifting weight slowly- Do not get carried away during your first session and do lots of reps with heavy weights. You should choose a weight that you are comfortable with, and at the same time you should feel that your muscle is working. This is very important for beginners or you will end up breaking your bones.

Focus- To ensure that what you are doing is good, you must always focus. And the most important point that you should keep in mind is not to hold your breath. No matter what kind of exercise you are doing, you need to breathe freely and fully as your muscles need great amount of oxygen.

The benefits of a good workout are well-known and numerous. Unless you are certain of the payback of fitness and the risks of unfitness, you will not succeed.
