It?s time to start a Healthy fitness regime: your 7 day personal training program
Do you find that you consistently go to sleep at night, with the intention of going to gym in the morning but then you change your mind within the space of eight hours. All this will affect your fitness levels as consistency is king.
It?s easy to change your mind at the last minute but you shouldn?t change or stop your fitness goals because of one little slip. What you need to realize is that your fitness levels and your diet are paramount to health, fitness and wellbeing.
Take the time to get to know and understand your body. Learn how your bodies energy levels are affected by the different foods you eat. Some people respond well to high protein diets, while others respond better to low fat, high carbohydrate diets. Keep your consistency with your fitness regime by eating well and exercising at the right intensity as this will increase your body?s metabolism.
The more you know about how your body responds to your lifestyle choices, the better you can customize fitness, nutrition and exercise plan that is right for you. When you eat well, increase your level of fitness, and exercise at the proper intensity, you are informing your body that you want to burn a substantial amount of fuel. This translates to burning fat more efficiently for energy.
To start your fitness regime begin with 20-30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise three to four times a week. Also integrate 20 ? 30 minutes of resistance exercise each session. This balanced approach will help to burn fat from the cardiovascular and resistance training. The resistance training will also help speed up metabolism as a higher muscle mass will increase the amount of calories your body will burn.
Here is an example of how you set up your fitness programme
? Warm Up ? 5-7 minutes of light aerobic activity like on a rowing machine, bike or treadmill. This helps lubricate the joints, and get oxygen to working muscles.
? Resistance Training ? Adopt a whole body approach by training the major muscle groups. For example, back, chest, legs and abdominals. Do one to two sets at the beginning and change to three to four after a few weeks, rest 45 seconds between sets.
? Aerobic Exercise ? Pick two favourite activities, they could be jogging, rowing, biking or cross-country skiing, whatever fits your lifestyle. Perform 12 to 15 minutes of the first activity and continue with 10 minutes of the
? Stretching ? Finish your fitness session with stretches for all the major muscle groups.
Make sure you are realistic with your fitness goals by setting SMART goals (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, time bound).
