Fit Body 101 - Increase Your Fitness Effectiveness

  • Written by Scarlet Gratton


You have to find some space for physical exercise in your weekly schedule in order to live a good life. Embracing this way of life is very beneficial because it increases your overall energy level. It boosts your metabolism so it becomes more resilient to any kind of distress. What is more, it improves your mood and self-confidence, promotes better sleep, eliminates stress, and reduces the risk of some health problems like stroke, heart attack, high blood pressure, diabetes, etc.

 

Exercising on a regular basis is perfectly possible even if you are a hard working person with a much cluttered schedule. It is not important to work hard or long, but to workout smart. Here are some tips you should follow to get the full benefit of your trainings.


Adjust Your Diet

 

Balanced diet is the foundation of efficient workout. You can spend hours and hours lifting weights, doing push-ups, or running on a treadmill, but you will not get into the perfect shape until you start to think what you eat. You need to supply your body with energy in order to go through intensive workout, so make sure to take a low-carb meal at least two hours before your training.

 

Your body will get the most out of your exercise if you take in enough proteins during and after the training. It needs protein to build muscle tissue after it has been ruptured during an intensive workout. You can bring some whey or soy protein shakes to the gym. Protein bars are another good solution you might take into consideration.


Practice High Intensity Interval Training

 

As you are probably aware, one can easily get used to the same level of workout intensity if you repeat the same exercise every day. You might experience some progress in the beginning, but if you don’t change your routine, your body will soon reach its plateau, and your workout sessions will not result in progress. Therefore, you have to take your body out of its comfort zone in order to make a difference.

 

This kind of exercise is great for anyone with a busy schedule. You can tuck your workout routine in only half an hour. The key to this exercise is in the exchange of high intensity workouts with the periods of rest. This way, you are losing a lot more calories than if you were doing only cardio training the same period of time. Try out some push-ups, lunges, squats, lifting weights, jumping rope, etc.


Get Quality Equipment

 

If you want to get the full benefit of your workout sessions, you need to feel comfortable while they last. You will feel comfy if you pick the right equipment for your training. Make sure to pick up the right shoes, shirt, pants, socks and other accessories to protect your joints and to maximize the performance of your body.

 

To get some extra benefit from your training, you should find a place for quality compression shorts in your closet. There are many reasons why you should do it. They reduce muscle fatigue after a workout, increase the amount of oxygen in your muscles, provide support for your groins, and give you some extra comfort while you are doing your exercises.


Hydrate

 

Always carry a bottle of water by your side during your training. Your body loses a lot of water through sweat, so you have to substitute it all the time. Your muscles are full of water, so it is important to hydrate properly in order to avoid some muscle issues like muscle cramps or soreness. Your muscles will become more tired if you don’t fuel them with water, which can harm your workout performance.

 

Hydration is crucial for many fundamental bodily processes, so you might experience some health problems if you forget to drink water during your exercise. It is recommendable to drink 7 to 10 ounces of water every 10-20 minutes of your training, and 8 ounces of water during the first 30 minutes after you finish your exercise. Otherwise you might experience some problems like headache, dry mouth, nausea, dizziness, fast heartbeat, etc.

 

You need to engage in some kind of physical activity on a regular basis if you want to maintain your physical and mental health. If you are frequently practicing short but highly intensive workout sessions, you are on the right path to lead a healthy life. Take good care of your body: eat healthy, wear comfortable and efficient clothes, engage in some kind of high intensive training, and don’t forget to drink water during your exercise.
