Do you want to uncover the blueprint for permanent weight loss?
Weight reduction success depends on many factors, as well as your attitude for the process. It took me years to uncover the cornerstones of genuine and permanent weight loss.
Today, I’m going to share with you some awesome secrets that will permit you to lose those extra pounds for good.
If you’ve tried for thus long to determine the numbers on your bathroom scale change, then today may be the day that you will finally understand what you need to do to start melting excess fat away.
Secret # 1: There’s a Target Time for Exercise
There isn’t any shortage of advice regarding the amount of time you need to spend exercising each week. Just one trip to any fitness or bodybuilding forum will yield a confusing mix of recommendations from Ten minutes each day to 120 minutes per day, Seven days a week.
So how long should you work out to lose weight?
The answer according to medical studies is at least 150 minutes every week.
But there’s a catch: if you limit yourself to just one type of exercise or physical activity, the weight loss will come more slowly or in some cases, it won’t come at all.
In order to torch fat more quickly, you would need to include the following in your daily fitness routine: cardiorespiratory exercises (like walking and running), resistance training (such as lifting weights) and additional physical activities (like playing sports).
Secret # 2: The Body Adapts to Exercise
Why do we experience weight loss plateaus?
Lots of people complain of the sudden slowdown within their weight reduction after a few months even when they are exercising regularly. This occurs because the human body adapts to regular activities.
The human body is an expert to maintain equilibrium and something of the ways to keep equilibrium or balance is by reducing the load loss. Adaptation to workout is one of our natural survival abilities.
How can you beat the body’s adaptation ability?
The answer is easy: keep things exciting! If you are beginning to become bored with your current exercises your body gets bored, too.
Your body decelerates the weight loss since you happen to be approaching your state of equilibrium. The body doesn’t feel challenged anymore and the weight reduction process is halted to save your present bodyweight.
If you need to lose more pounds, then you’ve to begin doing things differently.
Here are some tips to shake your routines up:
- ADD more exercises to surprise your muscles and keep yourself challenged whenever you exercise.
- INCREASE the frequency of your sets and repetitions to get yourself out of your current comfort zone.
- CHANGE the way you perform your exercises. For example, if you used to perform regular front planks on the floor, try adding a Swiss ball for added instability. Consult with your fitness trainer to find out more!
- RELAX more, if you need to. Sometimes we become so focused on losing weight that we forget that our bodies need rest to function properly. If you are physically and mentally stressed from exercising too much then you need to take a step back and reevaluate your fitness regimen.
Ideally, you should have at least one complete rest day every week. Do not exercise more than 2 hours every day, unless you are under the close supervision of a medical professional or a certified physical trainer.
When should you stop exercising?
You need to stop exercising immediately if you feel dizzy, nauseated or if you believe that your heart is beating out of rhythm.
Individuals who’ve been diagnosed with health conditions for example diabetes and high blood pressure level should first talk to their doctors before beginning any exercises both at home and at the gym. You should never second-guess your physician or you will end up in the hospital!
