It may seem impossible to achieve your fitness goal. Your fitness journey need not be hard or painful. By making a few lifestyle changes, you will be able to improve your overall fitness level and reach your fitness goals.
Lifting weights is the most common way people use to try to achieve their fitness goals. You really only need six exercises to maintain your body’s muscles, they are: push ups, pull ups, squats, leg raises, bridges and handstand push ups.
Keep a detailed, daily journal of what you do. Log what you eat and any exercise you do. If you really want to be a completionist, record the weather, too. This will help you notice trends associated with highs or lows in your fitness plan. If you slack off on your workout for a couple days, record the reason for this lapse.
Practice the “invisible chair” exercise to strengthen up your legs. First, you need an unobstructed wall that is at least the width of your body. Stand approximately a foot and a half away from the wall. While bending your knees, lean back until you touch the wall with your entire back. Continue to squat until your thighs are level to the floor and you reach a sitting stance. You should hold this position until you cannot stand it any longer.
Sit ups and crunches are not the full answer when it comes to getting ripped stomach muscles. Abdominal exercises do strengthen your muscles; however, they don’t burn belly fat. You will have diet and do a cardio routine along with the exercises in order to get rid of the fat covering those washboard abs.
While nothing comes easily, know that working hard will certainly pay off in the end. By bettering your fitness levels, you will improve your health, appearance and well being. By getting fit you can improve your productivity in other areas of life like work. This is because your whole body is functioning better, allowing you to make smarter decisions.
