Are you in bad shape and want to get into shape, or are you in good shape but want to get better? If that is the case then this article has been created for you. These tips and tools will help you regardless of your level.
One of the best way to get into shape that we strongly recommend is doing home fitness. It is so much easier to do it from home and you have no real excuse not to do it! Basic exercises like running around the street or walking up and down stairs can be a great cardio boost.
Best of all at home you do not have to worry about strangers at the gym or public music being played as you can play your own favorite music! One of the our favorite pieces of equipment is an indoor spinning bike for home workouts. We highly recommend looking into one if you can afford it!
Now back to your goals in mind. You need to not think short term and think about the health you want to enjoy for the rest of your life. And a lot of this is not just about working out in fact most of the work is done with your diet. A lot of big overweight people may actually be healthier than super skinny people. It really depends on their nutrition. The image below is a fantastic but not always image of ‘you are what you eat.’
Another great workout can include plyometric workouts. That means resistance and pushing exercises only using your body weight. So these can include, squats, pull ups, lounges, crunches and many more. This way you don’t even need to buy any gym equipment and you can still feel the heat!
Remember when you feel the burn and your heart rate is elevated then you are likely in the zone! Try to stay in it and push it even harder (be mindful of your age though!). If you get sick or it is getting to hard for you then it may be time to take it easier and relax a bit.
Another great thing to do is to play some sports. If baseball is your thing then go for that. If soccer is your thing then for that. It doesn’t really matter, as long as you are outside and doing some cardio work. The competition however will likely make you push your limits without you realizing it, and this can have great benefits!
We hope these tips helped. They are very generic, but fitness usually always is unless you are specifically working with someone who has specific needs. We will try to cover new and specific posts in the future! Moreover Diets will be a bit part of it!
