Finding The Most Effective Workout Plans
Finding the best exercise plan can be challenging when you’re new to working out. Not all workout plans are the same, and it can be hard to know what will help you meet your specific goals. This article will give you a few basic tips to help you decide what program will work best for you.
The first tip is about good goal setting. It is very important to have a clear goal when you’re starting a new program. Exercise is about consistency and forming healthy habits, which means sticking with a program long enough to see results. The first few weeks are the hardest, because you’re not already in the habit of exercising, and having a clear goal can help keep you on track when things get difficult. You want a goal that is specific and measurable (like “I want to lose 10 pounds” instead of “I want to lose weight”), and has a clear time frame. You also want to make your goal realistic. “I want to lose 100 pounds in the next 3 months” is not a realistic goal. You want to push your comfort zone a little, but you don’t want to set yourself up for failure and disappointment, or worse, injury. Extreme exercise or crash dieting can harm your body in the long term, and you want your goal to support your long term health.
If you want to lose weight, you want to look for workout plans that have a combination of cardio and strength training. Cardio is great for burning fat, as well as supporting your overall health. Strength training is important because muscle burns more calories than fat, so building muscle will speed up your metabolism and accelerate your results. Strength training will also give you a more toned body than just cardio alone.
If you want to get stronger, it’s still a good idea to look at workout plans that include some cardio, for a few reasons. First, it’s good for general health. Increasing circulation also helps you push harder and recover faster from exercise, because your muscles are getting more oxygen. If you get out of breath easily, you will fatigue more easily during any kind of exercise, which will slow your results. If your main goal is strength, you don’t need as much cardio as for weight loss, but you do want some.
No matter what your goals are, consistency and frequency are very important. Working out every day, even for half an hour, is going to lead to better results than working out for 3 hours on Saturday and then sitting around the rest of the week. Your body likes routine, and will adapt better to exercise if you do it regularly. After a few weeks of regular exercise, you will probably notice that you feel strange if you don’t work out. Your body will get used to it, and you’ll start to want to work out, even if you dread it now. That’s a good sign that you’ve formed a new habit – your body is expecting you to exercise. It takes several weeks to form a new habit, though, so really commit to it and don’t give up!
