Avoid these Fitness Mistakes to Lose Weight!
- 8 Months ago
Do you follow a strict fitness regimen and a good diet, but still see no changes in your weight? Avoid these common fitness mistakes that are keeping you from losing weight:
No weight training - If you are working out and weight training is not a part of your fitness regimen, then it's time to add them to your exercise. Expect 100% fat loss when weight training is included as against exclusive cardio that causes only 75% fat loss. Researches also suggest that weight training utilizes 71% more calories than expected.
No sufficient weight lifting - Stretch beyond your comfort zone. Lifting weights beyond your accustomed intensity, leads to strengthening of muscles. The same holds good even for women, though they needn’t worry about bulking up as their bodies don't produce enough hormones for that.
No lower body exercises - If you are intending to lose your big belly, do not miss out on exercises for your lower body. Research also suggests that you burn more calories when you strength train your lower body as compared to the upper body.
Are you watching your diet - It’s a huge mistake if you make exercise as an excuse to eat whatever you want just because you are exercising. Watch what you eat and know the foods that you should avoid. Or simple, just contact your dietitian today!
Are you irregular - Is a busy schedule your excuse to skip exercise today? Research suggests that people are 15% more productive on the days they workout. So how about working only for 8 hours instead of 9 and utilizing that one hour to get in shape?
Give it a thought...it's worth the effort!
