Take that Step!
There is a massive difference between telling everybody that you are going to start working out, and actually taking the first step and doing something about it. That first little step is actually a massive step forward.
Set reasonable exercise goals
The truth of the matter is that you are not going to be ready for the Olympics after a week of training – no matter how hard you try. When you set the bar too high for yourself, it will probably only leave you de-motivated. Set weekly or even daily goals for yourself and only focus on that.
Apart from setting unrealistic goals, the second biggest reason for giving up is becoming bored. Make sure that you try new ways to exercise or at least change your program. Moreover, after about 6 to 8 weeks of the same routine, your muscles become used to it and you won’t burn so much fat or build as much muscle as in the beginning.
Eat Yourself Fit
Just because you are working out doesn’t mean you get to eat pizza and a bucket of ice cream each day. If you want to get the most out of your routine, make sure that you have a proper meal plan that is balanced to ensure you get the needed nutrients for your body to have as much energy as possible.
The main reason is simply to keep your body hydrated at all times. When dehydration sets in, your body metabolism slows down!
It is not a Fashion Parade!
Exercising at the gym or taking a run on the streets isn’t a fashion parade! At the end of the seeming exercise, the heels of the foot begins to ache, muscle cramps set in. Go see the experts at a proper sport shop to get you into the right gear for you. It does not help you whatsoever if you spend 3 hours a day in the gym messing around without knowing what you are doing. To get the maximum benefit, get some training from a professional or a friend who actually knows what he is doing. Not only will you reap more benefits, it can ensure that you don’t hurt yourself while working out.
