- Keep Your Thoughts Positive Before You Start
Planning to spend some time working out today? Think POSITIVE! The thought we have about our workouts BEFORE we do them really will affect how much we enjoy them and also if we will actually do them at all! If you spend time concentrating on how hard it’s going to be and how tired you’re feeling, you’ll find it difficult to summon up the energy or may even start to talk yourself out of doing anything… so keep positive and look forward to training.
- Aim To Enjoy Your Training
Similar to the first point but a little more specific. Don’t ever allow yourself to think ‘I don’t like this’ about any of the exercises you’re doing. Focus on doing them well and enjoying the satisfaction of knowing that they are all designed to do something good for you – to get you the results you want! Remember, every rep counts!
- Push Yourself 1% Further
Gimme 200%! On second thoughts, don’t. Why? It can’t be done! But you do need to progress your workouts to get your body to progress and make changes. If the workout stays at the same level, so will you. So give just a teeny little bit more each time, and very soon those little extra pushes will add up to one very big serious difference in what you can do.
- Watch Your Technique!
Not only does the correct technique keep the workout safe, it’s also crucial to making sure the exercises do what you want them to do. You’ve got to find the right position to allow the muscles to respond in the way they are designed to and the better the response, the more they can work and so the better the results you will get! So work on your lines, posture and position to get the biggest bang for your buck on every exercise you do.
- Be Prepared.
There’s nothing worse than not being able to give it all you’ve got because you came unprepared! Bring water so that you don’t get to thirsty, wear clothing that doesn’t need to be adjusted to keep it decent in exercises (nothing worse than feeling your knickers or showing or that your cleavage is about to fall out of your top!) and get rid of any distractions that break your focus… that means mobile phones off, money in a safe place and no jewelry that’s going to swing or dangle.
- Work When You’re Working, Rest When You’re Not….
When it’s time to exercise, throw yourself in! A well-constructed workout will have rest breaks scheduled in to allow you time to recover, so don’t start taking time out in the middle… keep working! Then, when the rest comes, chill. Even if you feel you like to more, take a break. It’s better to increase your effort than to increase your reps or distance.
- Congratulate Yourself!
Is workout done? Give yourself a big pat on the back! You’ve just done something really fantastic for your body, your mind and your goals. Celebrate it! Hard work and effort deserves a reward. Smile and say ‘Well done me!’. If you’re in a group, give some praise to those around you too… having someone tell you that you did a good job can really make your day, so go ahead and make the day of the person next to you, and yourself too.
Before You Research Diet Fitness Plans Understand How Weight Impacts Your Health
What is your best healthy weight? And why is this important? There are several methods to determine how much you should weigh which I will tell you about. But first, why is this important for you to know? If you want to lose weight in order to look better, you might be curious to know just what number you should aim for. It is wise to aim for your correct healthy weight and not lose too much or too little.
When you are thinking about a weight loss diet it is a good idea to know just how your weight impacts your health. People who are overweight are at a higher risk for health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and cancer to name a few.
Being underweight also has its problems. First of all it is a signal that a person may not be getting all the essential nutrients that come from food. Being underweight can also play havoc with your endocrine system.
Your Diet and Fitness Plan Starts With Determining Your Ideal Weight – Here is How
So how do you go about finding your ideal healthy weight? First check your height. Stand against a wall with your shoes off and mark your height on the wall. Take a tape measure and measure the height. Weigh yourself to check your actual weight and subtract a few pounds if you are wearing clothes. Now use a height/weight table to find your ideal weight. You can find a height/weight table on the internet or at your library.
Another method of finding your best weight is to compute your BMI. This is your Body Mass Index, which tells you the amount of fat on your body. There is an ideal range of body fat corresponding to your height and whether you are male or female. Your BMI will give you a better idea of whether you are in danger of developing health problems due to the amount of fat.
It’s easy to calculate your BMI
1) Find your weight without clothes
2) Find your height in inches
3) Multiply your height in inches by the same number of inches.
4) Divide your weight in pounds by the answer to number 3 above (your height in inches times your height in inches)
5) Multiply the answer you got in number 4 by 703
Here is the formula:
[ weight in pounds / (height in inches) x (height in inches) ] x 703
If you are using the metric system, measure your weight in kilograms and your height in meters and use this formula:
[ weight in kilograms / (height in meters) x (height in meters) ]
Here is what your BMI indicates:
Below 18: You are underweight
Between 18 and 18.5: You are thin for your height
Between 18.6 and 24.9: You weight is healthy
Between 25 and 29.9: You are overweight for your height
Above 30: Indicates obesity
A Mens Fitness Diet Plan As Well As A Womens Should Help You Lose One To Two Pounds Per Week
The methods I have just described will help you with your diet and fitness plan. You will be able to judge just how much weight you should lose or gain for best health. If your objective is to lose weight, you should also think about the rate at which you drop pounds. A one or two pound decrease per week is thought to be ideal for maintaining proper nutrition.
A study has shown recently that there are more than 350 million diabetics worldwide. And this number is increasing every single day. Experts say that we are not at the peak of that wave. I have read the opinion of an expert in an article, who summarizes the situation as follows:
” have to move more and eat less.”
It is quite easy to say that. But it is more difficult to do it. The question is not about avoiding food and eating less. The most important aspect is to know what you can eat and what is healthy for you. Fitness and eating depend on each other. In order to achieve great fitness results, one needs a professional nutrition plan.
Most people spend money for different fitness machines. There are so many nowadays. One of them is the Ab Circle Pro. They do not realize, that they would never get fit only by practicing for 10 minutes a day. This is absolutely impossible. For strong results you need good food, you need a strict nutrition plan and you need to know what kind of food you definitely need to avoid.
There are many different articles on that topic. Therefore I have decided to share my basic principles with you. You could definitely do that and find more articles on my personal blog.
Important aspects of nutrition and diet revealed on Ab Circle Pro Reviews.
Protein has 3 important effects. First it has a higher thermic effect than carbs and fat. Second it satisfies your hunger for a longer period of time. And third, it supports you in building lean muscle. My first principle is to make sure I get daily enough protein in my nutritional plan.
I get my carbs from vegetables and fruits and I try avoiding refined sugars and grains.
Avoiding fats can actually have negative results on your body if you reduce your daily intake significantly. Therefore I make sure to eat enough fat daily. Excellent sources could be all nuts and seeds, avocados, olive oil, organic meats and organic eggs.
Finally I definitely avoid at any costs artificial fats from margarines, shortening and hydrogenated oils and last but not at least I avoid high fructose corn syrup.
This is a basic list of some of my personal principles as long as right nutrition is concerned. On my personal blog I provide a detailed review of one of the most famous abs machines on the market. It is the ab circle pro. I share my personal experience and recommendations and I explain some important issues about achieving real results.
One thing that needs to be mentioned again. Nutrition is exactly as important as exercising. Starving doesn’t mean that you would lose fat and get a flat stomach. Forget about it. More important is what you eat. Starving could cause big health problems.
If you decide to make fitness and lose weight and get six pack abs then you need to be consequent and motivated. If you plan to give up in the second week, simply do not start with it. If you are motivated, you need a strategy with a right nutrition plan. Keep following it and do not give up.
