How to train for weight loss
In order to lose weight it is not necessary to go to the gym every day. This conclusion was made by scientists of the University of Alabama. Exercising every other day will bring significantly more benefits than daily exhausting exercises. And the point here is not in an excessive load on the muscles, but in psychology.
With daily training, a person is more inclined to feel sorry for himself and to give relief. For example, a little sweet, which leads to the loss of all acquired results. And it turned out very simply: an experiment was conducted in which women who wanted to lose weight were divided into two groups. The first group trained hard every day, and the second only a few times a week. To the surprise of scientists, the women from the second group, who practiced every other day, did a better job. The thing was that women who trained daily, relaxed too often and allowed themselves sweets and fat, dined late and so on, in the hope that tomorrow they would burn their calories in training. They also exhausted themselves so much in training that they stopped walking on foot between them. But do not forget that a significant role in weight loss is played by the most ordinary household loads.
Therefore, if you want to lose weight, then exercise is very important for you as well as a diet. But it is not an easy way. Forget about super magic training programs and wonder diets that will magically make your waist slim in a week. Where to train is up to you. But when training in the gym or at home, you need to be able and competently build classes, here, the main thing is not to overdo it. Let’s see exactly how the process of building muscle and burning fat. Our muscles grow and strengthen not during the training itself, but after some time. Training only gives the body a command to start developing muscles. Exercising, we are in a way damage the body, it gives an appropriate response, and the muscle mass begins to grow. Similarly, the body is prepared for the next load. So is the process of building muscle. If you train every day, without letting your body understand what is happening, then the result will soon become worse until it completely disappears. If your goal is relief muscles and a slim waist, then experts advise giving your body a rest. It is much more productive than everyday loads that can turn into stress.
But if you decide to train at home, then for productive workouts you should follow some simple rules. In addition to a strong desire to lose weight, get tired, etc., you need to choose a time convenient for you. Training should not take place in a hurry, because so to achieve good results will be extremely difficult. It is best to do this when you are free and take your time, but not earlier than 1-2 hours after eating and not before bedtime. In addition, the training should last at least an hour. Be sure to start the exercises with a warm-up. It is necessary to warm up the muscles well before the load in order not to get stretching. Another tip to improve the result – alternate load. If there are no simulators in your house, and, most likely, they are not there, then use furniture. The floor is great for almost any kind of bench press. And if you have a chair, then this is a whole range of different exercises. If you put your feet on top, the twisting exercise will be even more effective. And if, leaning on his hands, lower the body, then you can swing the triceps. If the weather permits you, sometimes exercise outside.
Fresh air is a great helper for weight loss. Running in the park is great for burning calories. Another plus of training on the street is that the body spends energy to heat the body. Another little tip – do not ignore the DVD-ROM with training programs. It diversifies your workouts a little and gives you motivation. For example, programs from Gillian Michaels can be safely recommended to all fitness enthusiasts, both beginners and advanced ones.
Every two months, change the program. Over time, your body will get used to the loads, and training will bring less and less benefit, so you need to make a good “shake up”. You can change the sequence of exercises or add load, but something needs to be changed. After training, you should always feel tired, weak, and pleasant.
In conclusion, I must say that no matter how and where you train, the main thing is that you always have the desire to continue, there is motivation. If you want to “score”, then try to somehow inspire yourself, look at the results, but they will. The main thing is not to give up and move on. The point is not that you train on the most modern simulators and use miracle diets. The main thing – the regularity and perseverance in the classroom. This is the key to success.
