5 TIPS TO HELP YOU REACH YOUR WEIGHT AND FITNESS GOALS
Do more weight/ resistance training. This builds muscle. Muscle fire rockets your metabolism. Fast metabolism equals greater fat burning.
Do high intensity cardio rather than the ‘normal’ cardio, which can makes you crave sugar and inhibit your weight loss.
99% of people you meet daily see you from behind. If you look good from behind, you will be hot from the front, but not the other way. That's why kettle bell swings are king.
Base your performance and success more on your body fat going down and your muscle going up, rather than focusing on your weight dropping on the scale.
Base your training on push, pull, hinge, squat and farmers walk to make you functionally fit and awesome.
Exercise should be fun and form part of your daily routine, no matter what your age, current fitness level or career and family obligations. Many people use the excuse of being too busy to fit exercise in to their day, however it is possible. With a change of mind set and a little bit of creative thinking you can train yourself to start making the right choices automatically. Take for example a simple change in habit, like using the steps instead of taking the elevator at work. This small adjustment in routine, can significantly contribute to the burning of calories and improving your fitness.
Don’t forget the importance of regular stretching and breathing. Other forms of exercise like Pilates and Yoga are an excellent option, especially if you are not one of the energizer bunnies addicted to getting their sweat on! These forms of exercise can significantly improve circulation and are great ways to relieve stress!
