SUMMARY

  • The average duration of a cardio training should be around 30 minutes. Start small and gradually build your way up. This way you will know your limits and keep your heart safe.
  • To get the necessary fats, protein and carbohydrates for your body, eat more salmon and avocado. These products have enough fats, but they are healthy and non-destructive.
  • Not sleeping enough means lower physical performance and slower recovery. And when you feel tired, there is no point in going to the gym.
  • Many people think drinking water when exercising is wrong, but you are not one of them, right? Don’t torture yourself by not drinking any water. During a workout, your body actively loses a lot of fluids.
  • If you want to keep your weight in check or even decrease it, you have to eat right and stay away from empty calories.
  • If you don’t want to lose consciousness in the gym, eat 2 hours before exercising. 2 hours is enough for the body to digest the food to the point when you are already not feeling sleepy and not hungry yet.
  • A hot bath or a sauna can be very dangerous for your heart and blood vessels. So if you want to wash off the sweat, take a warm shower instead.
  • You can comfort yourself with this thought: muscles weigh more than fat. So, maybe the fat you wanted to burn turned into muscles?
  • Trainers are usually great motivators. Besides, their job is to develop a training program that fits your needs and your physical capacity. A professional trainer can make sure you do all exercises correctly and don’t harm yourself accidentally.
  • Don’t forget to take a few minutes to stretch after a workout. It will reduce the pain in the muscles and make your recovery much faster.
  • If you work out every day, you will feel exhausted, and your muscles won’t have enough time to recover. Ironically, daily workouts lead to the increase of cortisol in your body.

  5. idk certain body muscle deserve to be worked out everyday. back doesn't, calves doesn't, rear delts don't, shoulders don't. abs yes don't feel nothing the next day cuz they accustomed. legs yes you walk a lot even to the fridge.

  6. Daily workout is not bad, daily weight lifting is bad, that is when you need to rest your muscles. If it is cardio workout especialy light cardio, then it is the same as doing daily household chores, walking, or just regular movement of your body. If you over eat in one day, it is best to burn them the same day and not wait another day.

  7. Funny about trainer. Could u pay some money , I would love to hire one. But u know what , that’s why I didn’t find a prince of my dreams since I’m looking for good hearted guy who knows how to train you .

  8. Not sleeping enough…Yeah it completely isn’t 2:00 am right now hehe.

  9. I never drink at the gym as I'll be in the loo instead of exercising ! Also can't remember the last time I had a full nights sleep .

  10. Daily workouts of the RIGHT workouts are good. Also, if your muscles are sore, doing low intensity workouts actually help to make your muscles “heal” faster.

  11. So…is it bad to run every morning?

  18. I love getting into the jacuzzi after my workout. It’s so relaxing.

  19. I disagree with 8. Energy drinks aren’t the devil , they are made for people like marathon runners who can’t eat anything while their running. The sugar and electrolytes keep them going.
