9 Fast And Quick Fitness Tips For Everyone, a guest post
Most of the time, people are put off by fitness regimes because they think that it takes a good chunk of their day, it”™s expensive, or just can”™t motivate themselves out of their habits. But there are methods that you can either start off new or add to your existing regime to find great benefits! Plus, you can find more expert analysis in this guide to fitness workouts for a more lasting and satisfying dietary regime.
These tips I”™m going to share with you don”™t require an expensive gym membership or equipment. Plus, they are pretty easy to finish off quickly as well, so it doesn”™t take up too much of your time.
In no particular order, these are 9 tips that everyone can do quickly and effectively.
1# Fitness Is Important
I”™m no stranger to watching early morning tennis matches for Roland Garros but yet somehow, I make excuses (to myself) for my early morning run. This has to stop. Being fit should take priority in your life. Fitness goes a long way to improve your quality of your existence. And the best part is, it doesn”™t take a lot of your time. MAKE FITNESS A PRIORITY!
2# Down For The Count
Calorie counting is something that I used to abhor, but now it gels in with my normal scheme of things. The key here is to start your counting casually before moving to more accurate methods. After you”™re done with the initial phase, you should keep track of anything edible that goes into your stomach. Yes, that means those spoonfuls of ice cream.
3# Don”™t Skip Breakfast
Never, ever make an excuse to skimp on breakfast. This is a theory that has stood the test of time and is the most common advice from the bygone ages to now. Everyone seems to agree on this and for good reason. With a healthy breakfast, you”™re setting the tone for your body to follow through the day. Studies have shown that people who eat breakfast tend to consume fewer calories during the day.
4# Errands Around The House
Don”™t shy away from running small errands and doing stuff around the house. Driveway full of snow? Rather than paying someone a pretty penny, do it yourself. Need to pop down to the supermarket for some supplies? Don”™t take the car, walk down to the store yourself. Small things like these can make a huge difference in the scheme of things.
5# Make Your Work Day Work Out
If you, like me, have a desk job then chances are that you don”™t get to move around all the much. Sitting in one place can actually be detrimental to your health. To this end, some people I know like to walk around and stretch themselves periodically. Me, I went ahead and got myself an inexpensive grip strengthener and a couple of dumb bells. Make sure that you don”™t sit around for too long at a time.
6# Find Your Peeps
Like any arduous journey, the more people you have with you, the easier it is to combat obstacles. Rather than doing a lone wolf routine, it is always more productive to have a partner with you at gym who shares your zest for fitness.
7# Alcohol Limits
Everyone knows that alcohol lowers inhibitions. The inhibition I”™m talking about though is food though. Your well-planned diet turns to chaos the moment you get a little tipsy and you literally rampage through that chicken casserole. Limit yourself from consuming too much alcohol to avoid this predicament. Plus, alcohol by itself contributes to your calorie count.
8# Don”™t Cut Carbs
Contrary to popular myth, carbs do not increase weight. Rather, carbs are integral to your fitness because it can give you a burst of energy which you can use to push yourself harder at the gym. Most people go carb-free and find out that they lack the energy to push themselves to the max when they workout.
9# Veggies Are Your Friends
If you are going to binge eat, make sure that you have your plate full of greens. Vegetables are great to fill your stomach and give you energy while not contributing to your calorie count. Veggies can give you everything that your body requires so keep them stocked in your refrigerator.
These are simple to follow tips that don”™t take too much of your time while being very helpful to your body in terms of health. If you found value in this post, then do find time to share it with your friends. If you have suggestions, I”™d be happy to hear it!
