The yuletide season offers many reasons to gorge oneself towards obesity. This is why most New Year’s resolutions are about losing weight or going to a fitness gym. Yes, it’s that common for people to regret their eating habits over the holidays.
If you’re worried about the kilos you’re gaining, put together your workout programme now! Doing so will ensure you have a solid plan in 2019 and you’ll feel more motivated to stick to it.
Don’t know where to start? Consider these beginner tips.
Get clearance from your doctor. This is especially important if you’ve been leading a mainly sedentary lifestyle. You want to be sure you don’t have any underlying medical issues that could flare up during your fitness classes.
Make healthier food choices. Your diet should limit your calorie intake so you’ll actually be burning fat but still get sufficient nutrients and energy for your workout routine. Ideally, you should avoid refined carbohydrates while opting for lean and low-fat meats.
Make it a routine. Hitting the elliptical for 30 minutes a day isn’t enough if you’re aiming for significant weight loss. Instead, perform three exercises daily while you’re starting out. Keep this up for about a month so it can slowly become a habit.
Include a circuit training session. You can perform this once a week then progress to twice a week. This can be a combination of reverse lunges, push-ups, dumbbell overhead presses, Russian twists, dips, lat pull downs, planks, and more.
Ask for expert help. Part of your gym membership is access to qualified staff who can help you achieve your fitness goals. So, don’t hesitate to seek the advice of a professional trainer if you feel that your routine is lacking something.
Push yourself in every exercise. Regardless how repetitive or boring your programme might seem, always give your 100 percent the moment you walk into the gym. This is how you can set yourself up for success and see some results for your efforts.
Move more every day. Extra movement in your daily activities is crucial for your weight loss journey. Try placing dumbbells around your office or home so you can pump out repetitions between other activities. Or you can move stuff upstairs so you’ll have to use your staircase more often.
