“Something new” refers to an activity which you liked to do or some cross-fit workout which seemed difficult. This will energise and boost your morale and keep up good spirit.
Everyone has different fitness goals ranging from generally staying active to making fitness the lifestyle. There are many hyper specific workouts designed in the area of fitness, but in today’s scenario two common queries which people usually ask are regarding weight loss and muscle gain.
The question is: how can one achieve a sculpted body or healthy lifestyle in current hectic day-to-day life? These five simple steps will help you attain your goals, keep you grounded and force you to look at the big picture in your approach to incorporating physical activity within your life.
One works very hard in the gym to get the best shape for the body, but short term results may not look attractive. Just don’t give up here.
The journey is long and much harder than you think. People think of doing exercise daily but due to laziness or any other personal reason they cannot do it. This is where your dedication is required.
Even athletes quit after not getting the desired result. This is the point to analyse and come out with the list of don’ts. Realise that fitness should be a lifetime commitment with ever-changing goals and expectations, and it should help you live a longer, healthier life.
GET A PROPER NUTRITION DIET
“Nutrition goals are usually pretty crucial to achieve success,” says Steve Ettinger, a fitness expert, speaker and certified strength and conditioning specialist. Selecting a proper and effective diet plan depends on personal goals as well as your health condition.
One should add fruits and salads, which are common for all people. The general tip is to take high proteins and complex carbohydrates and cut on fats. Increase the number of meals in your routine. An average person should take 8-10 healthy meals in a day. One should control consuming unhygienic junk food as much as possible.
FLEXIBILITY AND BALANCE
One of the most important routine which everyone should have is stretching. Stretching improves your flexibility and removes the fear of muscle tear, joint injuries, broken bones etc. Flexibility decreases as age increases but maintaining it helps in the long run.
Each and every part of the body should be equally developed and balanced. Any of the fitness goals will require a stronger base of flexibility and/or balance that your body can handle.
COME OUT OF THE COMFORT ZONE
It is necessary to follow a routine, but once in a while come out of it and try something new. This will surely boost your morale and will keep you motivated during workout.
SETTING GOAL DURATION
Once the goal is set, its duration of completion should also be fixed. One should try very hard to achieve the goal in estimated time duration or else the goal is of no purpose.
There may always be an overarching goal, but if it’s something that requires a significant change in your body, you’ll need to have a number of bite-size goals along the way.
Lastly I would like to add that people who want to lose weight should focus on losing the cellulites and the complex fats present in the body. Hit the kitchen more for healthy food, but workout – about 70 per cent of your fitness is due to the workout.
And remember these words: Eat healthy, be healthy; Work hard with dedication; Always try to have healthy habits for a healthy life; and Get stronger and harder.
