I don’t need to tell you how much workouts are crucial for quick weight loss. However, if you don’t do the following three things, your workout sessions would just prove to be a waste of time. Let me tell you about the top three things you should do in order to extract the most out of each and every workout session you participate in!
1. Variety is the spice of life: This is true not only of foods but also workouts! If you want to gain the maximum benefit out of exercises, you should do a variety of workouts so as to keep your body guessing! When you do the same old workout each and every day, your body gets accustomed to it and consequently burns fewer calories than before.
Think about it this way: if you eat the same old food time and again your tongue would get used to its taste and then you would no longer be as interested in that food as before! The same holds true for workouts as well!
So one day you may do some jogging, another day, indulge in swimming, then basketball, cycling, etc. If you are doing intense workouts you should alternate between the various types of intense workouts available!
2. Replace long boring cardios with interval training: The days of long boring cardios are gone. Why would you spend four hours on cardios when you could gain the same benefit within just five minutes?
Interval training is the new craze among weight loss aspirants. You only need to spend five minutes on it in order to lose weight quickly and easily! Apart from being a huge time saver, another advantage of interval training over cardios is that it helps you burn fat even at rest! Just imagine, won’t it be nice if you could burn fat simply by sitting on your couch and watching your favorite movie? If you want that then you need to start doing interval training!
3. Snack before exercising: Who said snacking before exercising is not good? If you snack one-and-a-half hour before starting the workout, you have nothing to worry about! When working out, many people become fatigued half-way. This won’t happen to you if you snack before hitting the gym.
The best kind of snack for this purpose is a low-carbohydrate protein bar! You should also drink plenty of water before, during and after exercising! The more hydrated your body is, the easier it will be for you to sustain the intensity of workouts!
