Train the way you want your body to change
For example, if your main interest is general fitness,
choose a program which involves all the major muscle groups, endurance
and flexibility exercises. If you want to be a marathoner, you would
concentrate solely on endurance. Custom Training can create a specific
program to achieve a particular fitness goal by clicking the customized
programs button or
a well-balanced diet
Training is half the battle. Proper nutrition along with training
crucial in achieving a specific fitness goal. Training and nutrition
complement each other. Its like flying a plane with one or
engines. You can get to a specific destination with one engine
( just training alone), but two engines (training and proper nutrition)
will get you there faster.
all year round
Taking too much time off can lead to losing the gains youve
made and can create more susceptibility to injury if you try to
get back in shape rapidly.
in shape gradually
Your body must adapt to stress gradually and training is considered
a stress. Overzealous training can lead to burnout and possible
injury. Rome wasnt built in a day and you cant expect
physique change rapidly. Be patient and give time for your
body to adapt.
train when youre ill or seriously injured
Your body has problems fighting multiple stresses simultaneously.
Training (a stress) along with fighting an illness or recuperating
from a injury can be very counter-productive and possibly
to your body
If the workout doesnt feel right, change it! Chances are if
workout is not achieving the specific effect and it doesnt
feel like its doing anything, it probably isnt.
Your body needs time to adapt to the stress (workout), and
the way it does this is with proper rest. If you are always training,
youre not giving your body a chance to recuperate itself,
leading to possible injury and burnout.
After a while, your body adapts to the workout and the training
effect you originally had begins to slow down and plateau. You
must constantly change your workouts to minimize this adaptation
which can eventually lead to staleness. Vary the volume and
intensity of your workouts to minimize this type of plateau effect.
Your mind is a very powerful tool. If you are going to succeed
in achieving a goal, belief in yourself and your potential, is very
crucial. Set short-term goals which will lead to long-term goals
and truly believe in them in order for them to be effective.
all you can about exercise
Learning how to exercise properly can speed up the path to
your fitness goal, minimize staleness, and prevent possible
injury. If you are not sure of how to exercise properly, read up
or seek a qualified fitness professional. Misinformation can
destroy the path to a fitness goal. Custom Training can provide you
with the necessary quality fitness information by clicking the
customized programs button or
believe every thing you hear and see
Often, people in their quest to achieving their fitness goals
may be lured into believing a lot of advertising which preys on
on ones emotions. For example, Joe Body, on an infomerical,
most likely didnt get his physique from the piece of equipment
he is trying to sell to you. Dedication and hard work is the
only and surefire road to success.
exercise and the fitness goal in its proper perspective
Exercise is important but not everything. Seek out to also
improve other aspects of your life and try to make it more well-
rounded. A well-rounded life can further improve your chances
of achieving your fitness goal and make the road to achieving it
