Staying fit is what most of us want. Having that physique of our dreams if what we want. The only problem is that most of us don’t know the right approach to stay healthy and fit. We will look for various things that can help but in reality, everything goes into vain as you are not being able to achieve anything by following your steps.
Boosting your fitness levels requires a few things that are really important. To start off you should know what diet you are about to follow. It all starts with a healthy diet and if you are already following a good diet then you will find the following tips quite easy. If you are not following a healthy diet then you should start following the keto diet. You can get more details about it with this keto guide.
To start anything new you need to have 3 things. Motivation, determination, and discipline. If you have these three things then nothing is going to stop you from improving your fitness level. The following tips will inspire you to improve your fitness level and it will also help you to improve your workout routine.
- ENDURANCE TRAINING
To start off your fitness routine you need to have a good stamina. The only way you can increase your stamina is by doing endurance training. There are different training programs that you can follow. HITT is one of them and once you start doing it you will notice a great boost to your stamina and health.
The reason why you should build your stamina before going into a fitness routine is that otherwise you will suffer from fatigue and such things can de-motivate you. This is why if you have a strong foundation then you will find it much easier to do the rest.
- CHANGE YOUR DIET
As I said before that your diet plays a major role in improving your health and fitness. So there are certain foods that you should consume and there are certain ones that you should avoid. Foods that are rich in protein should be on your priority list.
Collagen is also an important nutrient that should be a part of your diet. Some people also prefer to use collagen peptides as they help in increasing the amount of collagen in your body.
- LOOK OUT FOR CHANGES
One thing that you should make sure of is that your body doesn’t get used to your work out routine. So keep changing your workout after every 2-3 weeks. You can also switch between cardio and weight lifting workout. This will confuse your body and you will be able to have a better workout every time.
You will notice that if you are doing the same workout over and over again then the next time you do it, the exercise becomes way easier then it was before. Thats because your body is used to that workout. This is something that you should avoid.
- DAILY WORKOUT
Now you have done your endurance training. Now it’s time to make your routine of daily workout. This will include all three types of exercises. Endurance, lifting, and cardio. If you want to grow your muscles then you should avoid doing cardio that much.
If you are looking to lose weight and look lean then do more cardio and less weight training. This will give you that lean muscular look as well.
- TAKE PROPER REST
Everything ends up on a good rest. If you are looking to grow your muscles then taking proper rest is really important. If you are putting too much stress on your muscles then chances are that you will end up damaging them.
Its recommended that you take atleast 2 days rest in your weekly workout session. This will allow your muscles to grow properly and you will also be able to have that physique you always wanted.
- STAY MOTIVATED
I have seen many cases where people lose motivation because they don’t get the results they wanted to have. Most of these cases are after a few weeks of time. So you should understand that you can achieve anything without hard work, and you also need good motivation to stay on track.
Keep photo evidence of how you looked a month before and how you look today. This will help you to get the motivation that you need to keep on doing your current workout.
- DON’T LIFT HEAVY
Another important thing is that you should not lift too many heavyweights. Studies have shown that people who lift light weights and do more reps are more likely to see muscle growth compared to those who do the opposite and lift heavyweights.
Even if you are looking to lose weight and fat, you will see that most fitness trainers will recommend you to do lightweight training and it will also help in building up your stamina.
- AVOID NEGATIVITY
Along your fitness journey, one thing that you will notice is that there is way too much negativity around you. People will say what you are doing is a waste of time, the way you are doing is not right. Eat this and that, and they will give you tons of reasons to leave what you are doing.
Try to avoid such people as it will de-motivate you and chances are that you might be having anxiety attacks as well. People love to damage other goals there are very less people who get happy with what you are doing. So to stay motivated you have to avoid negativity.
These are some of the inspiring tips that can help you to stay fit. You might be doing your own fitness routine but the things that I have mentioned above will help you to improve that routine. If you are not fit and dealing with obesity then these tips will help you a lot to reduce your weight and be back on track to stay healthy and fit.
