Easiest Ways to Get in Shape

By Joshua C Kozak Subscribe to RSS | July 17th 2012 | Views:

The options to get into shape are numerous. The most effective methods are the ones that you will do on a consistent basis. The secret to any successful program is variety. Below are my most recommended tips to get in shape.

After a high intensity workout of a certain muscle group, you need to aid yourself to recover from the stress by doing a light, focused workout of the broken-down muscles the following day. By lightly working the muscle, you are aiding it to repair faster by allowing your body to transport nutrients more efficiently.

Don't attempt to build your abs predominantly with crunches. A prestigious university discovered that just one pound of fat gets burned after 250,000 crunches.  Therefore, if your ab workout consists of just crunches, you aren't making the progress you could be. So just build your stomach muscles in different ways.

When you work out, it's vital to keep in mind that short workouts are more effective than long ones.  Quality training always trumps quantity training. You can increase strength safely and effectively without all the muscle strain.

To assure that your body is being refueled and getting the right nutrients, it's critical that you use the correct supplements to increase your own fitness. Research should be done to decide what the best amounts for that individual will be. With just the right balance, supplements will increase the benefits of exercising and improve your overall fitness.

Also, using the correct form while exercising is very important to getting in shape. If you try to take the easy way out, you're just robbing yourself. Taking the easy way means can't get the full effect of your workout. If that's not enough, you also put yourself at risk for injury and flushing your goals down the toilet.

Try to avoid exercise while you're sick, unless you are sick from shoulders up. Just for precaution, it's recommended to just rest for the day. As a matter of fact, the effects of your workout will just go straight to helping you recover from the sickness.

In order to maintain your drive and focus, attempt to pay the trainer in advance. With your money in their hands, you should feel more motivated to push harder in your workouts and get your money worth.  This goes for everybody; the most effective workout program is the one that you follow through with and can do on a regular basis. 

This surprising technique can enhance your running form: Rather than doing a long distance run at a slower pace, do the opposite. In order to increase muscle tone and build endurance, run a faster pace for a shorter distance. This technique will also reduce your vulnerability to sprains and other injuries.

The last tip to get fit is to invest in body fat calipers.  Muscles obviously weigh more than fat, and so a scale can be very misleading for that reason.  Body fat calipers actually tell what percentage of your weight is body fat.
