So it’s that time of year again. Everybody has shed their winter woollies and making that commitment again to get themselves in shape for summer!
But what are the best ways to get yourself into the best shape of your life? Here are 10 hot tips that will help speed up the process:
- Make your goals realistic: Don’t set yourself up for failure by reaching too high too fast.
- Develop a schedule and stick to it: Put your workouts in your diary just like your appointments!
- Try a new form of exercise: Change can take you out of your comfort zone but that’s what it takes in order to reach success!
- Eliminate the obstacles: Stop finding excuses and start find solutions!
- Reset your metabolism: Shift your meal times and eating patterns, as well as your exercise routine, and you will find that your energy burning ability speeds right up!
- Throw out the scales: Can you tell how much celebrities from the movies or magazines weigh? No! So throw out the scales and be more concerned about your body shape, and how you actually feel!
- Eat a colourful meal: Look down at the next meal that is in front of you; does it offer plenty of colour and variety? If you can answer yes, excellent!
- Scrap the supplements and eat a proper diet: Supplements can be manufactured by synthetic sources, meaning they can actually have a negative effect on your body.
- Do the BIG lifts and get strong: Not only do these lifts burn more calories with each lift, but they improve muscle and joint strength, balance, and core strength.
- Stop wasting your time on your abs: train your ‘core’ rather than just your 6 pack by doing more functional exercises where your abs, lower back, hips and trunk are active without you directly thinking about it.
