How to Create the Exercise Plan That is Right For You
Would you like a way to create an exercise plan suited to you personally and to you alone? You know we often hear about fitness "secrets" and then when they are revealed to us they are usually things we already knew or are just common sense. Sometimes they can be very, very valuable and sometimes these exercise "secrets" are exactly what we need. Right now I am going to give you a "secret" (if you want to call it that), which will help you to determine which exercise plan will work best for you. See if you can find the logic in it and I believe you will see why this "secret" is so valuable!
One Good Exercise Plan
In my experience I have heard people ask the question, "What is the best exercise?" And the answer is ... The one you LIKE the MOST!
Because that is the one you are most likely to do!
Doesn't that make sense? One might say "common" sense (LOL). TIP! Scheduling your exercise routines in the early morning can provide some additional fitness benefits beyond the immediate value of working out. When you get your exercise done first thing, you will experience increased energy levels throughout the rest of the day. Now you might say, well… one exercise does not make an exercise plan. And I say, it could and it does for many people.
Of course, people who have a more diversified routine with various exercises that focus on the various muscle groups are going to have a higher level of fitness (more common sense). For most folks, one exercise would not be enough because although we all want to look good, feel good and be in good shape, we all have different fitness goals. However, for some, one exercise such as walking or jogging for example, performed regularly CAN AND DO provide many of the health benefits we are all looking for. TIP! Check your statistics. Every two weeks, you should calculate your weight and body measurements.
If you are one of these folks, and you already know what exercise you LIKE or ENJOY the most, then the next thing you need to do is determine how regularly you can schedule that activity into your week. If your fitness goals are such that a single exercise will not get you where you want to be, then it is time to make a list of your favorite exercises, beginning with the answer to the question above. TIP! Gym classes, led by an instructor, are an excellent way to improve your overall fitness level. Instructors plan routines in advance to optimize the right proportions of muscle work, aerobic work and stretching for each class.
Begin by listing your favorite exercise and then your second favorite exercise and so on and so forth until you feel that the list is sufficient. You can always add or subtract later. The key here is to list the ones you will most enjoy because you are more likely to do them.
Did you know that how often you exercise is the single most important factor in whether you:
Reach Your Weight Loss Goals
Will be Satisfied with Your Results
Will Feel Good about Your Progress
TIP! Be realistic with your goals and realize that they don't have to be weight related. Make a goal to workout two times a week, or to make it to a class once a week. If you dread your workouts you're more likely to skip, cheat and in time, perhaps abandon the entire plan. Don't let this happen! If you ever feel that way it's time to cut back. You're trying to do too much.
Remember to praise yourself for every little thing. You are not competing against anyone but yourself, and just doing your routine deserves (your) praise. Implementing a regular exercise plan is praise worthy regardless of the exercises or number of exercises that we perform. When we perform an exercise routine regularly we begin to not only look and feel better… we even sleep better. When you get right down to it I think we all know that a good exercise plan is part of a healthy lifestyle.
Regardless of Your Exercise Plan of Choice
Whether you like to walk, jog, swim, dance, lift weights, use a bowflex or any other piece of exercise equipment, I want to emphasize the importance of frequency. The only exception is if you are a bodybuilder you probably already know not to work the same body parts two days in a row because muscles need time to repair themselves to grow larger. TIP! Never "bounce" during your stretching routines. This is tempting, especially when you go into your most challenging stretches.
However, someone who wants to lose weight can walk (almost) daily or do any other aerobic exercise that gets the heart rate up to a fat burning pace. Remember to make your exercise plan fun.
