A great way to get you back on track to your weight loss mission is not by doing hundreds of crunches and then expecting ripped abs. Cardio is a must to reduce excessive body fat. Interval training will multiply your results. Cardio fat burning exercises will help you lose fat instead of just muscle and water weight – which is not something that will happen if you just go on a regular diet. Cardio, too, will help kick up your metabolism. Avoid cardio-overdrive at all times, this is doing too much cardio training that prevents your body from recovering. Recovery is the name of the game.
Combined with a good weight training regimen and a low fat diet in just a few months you will notice great results. Weight training combines building muscle tone and working the cardiovascular system as well. Plus it also helps your joints. Pick your favorite days to train your muscles, it is recommended that you do it every other day, remember to rest. As mentioned earlier give your body ample time to recover and regenerate. Don’t workout if your are dead sore, simply wait a few days and go at it again. Tip for recovering fast: drink plenty of water and take a protein shake before bed time.
Your cardio workouts can be Jogging, Swimming, Biking, Soccer, High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) just about anything that will increase your heart rate to speed up metabolism to burn fat and increase muscle.
Weight training preserves muscle mass, and increases body posture as your body tones up. Far better to have stronger supporting muscles than weaker smaller ones. Weight training also has more immediate benefits and results. Weight training is not only an important addition to any exercise program, but it provides a progression to continue to increase strength.
Always make your workouts fun and enjoyable, whether at home or going to the gym and never start your workout with a bad attitude, give yourself a positive pep talk before starting and tell yourself that you are worth it to have an incredibly healthy body and bring on the right mindset to staying positive.
Hope this helps, remember, cardio and weight training is a process not an overnight deal. You must be consistent and listen to your body for clues. If you hurt, stop and rest for a few days and reload with something different. There is no magic workout or a secret pill that will make it happen, there is only you, so follow through and finish strong.
