Losing weight and staying healthy is always a hot topic, especially at this time of year. It is amazing to see how many ads and products are available for this purpose alone. In fact, losing weight and staying fit would not be easy. Here are 3 easy steps you can take to start the road to becoming a healthier person.
This counts first because it is very important. I’ve seen triathletes (myself included) put on 15 hours of exercise a week and they’re still growing. Exercise alone will not lead to weight loss. It will improve your cardiovascular system, bone density, and many other things. However, in order to lose weight, you have to go into caloric deficits. This means you have to burn more calories than you use. I often joke that one of the most effective exercises is “Table Decline”. This is when you always say no or refuse to be given extra food.
A common misconception among many is that they believe in staining. They feel that if they do a lot of abdominal exercises they will lose weight in the middle of their position. This is not the case. You lose weight all over your body. One of the biggest misconceptions about strength training is that it will build more muscle faster and actually gain unwanted weight even if it is a soft muscle. Also, it is unlikely and very likely that if you avoid the isolation of the type of isolation and regular exercise in the 1980s and 1990s.
The last episode of strength training to do cardio. Cardio exercise is limited only by your imagination. You can paddle, bike, swim, run, walk, climb, swing, etc. There is no limit. When you walk then you do cardio. Indeed only 30 minutes a day of cardio is required depending on the intensity levels.
Usually, most attendees are able to reduce 2 to 3 steps. However, for some reason, it is difficult to get all three at once. Most endurance athletes are nutritious and cardio down very well but do not lift weights for fear of being too heavy which is the opposite of endurance sports. Weightlifters have nutrition and strength training but do not do cardio for fear of losing weight. This is probably good and good if you are trying to compete in a particular event. However, many people just want to be healthy and look good. If you are one of them then create your own schedule to include small changes in all three of the above areas (Nutrition / Energy / Cardio). You do not need to train for more than an hour a day (30 minutes of cardio and strength 30 minutes). Then make small adjustments in your diet. Remember, this is a lifestyle change so you are creating a new life here. This takes a lot of time and effort. Very early changes usually have good intentions but are not sustainable.
I hope this helps you get on the road to better health and fitness. Inside everyone has a healthy body that needs to come out.
