The Secret To A Healthy Workout Routine

We all make resolutions each new year to workout more, eat healthily and generally stay in good shape, but why is it that only some are able to follow these resolutions while the rest just let go.

If you are looking for solutions for this malaise of yours here are a few tips that can give the necessary shove to get you going in the right direction

  1. Be consistent: The most difficult and yet the most important part of any exercise routine is to be consistent. Set a time each day for your workout and stick to it no matter what. It doesn’t matter if you don’t do the full half hour, first get used to just being in the right place at the right time.
  2. Variety is the spice of life: Change the exercises you do each day. One day do cardio like running; another day mild walking and scattered over the week weight training. Mix up your exercises with some sport if you can and remove boredom from the workout.
  3. Be realistic in your goals: It is stupidity to tell yourself you will run 5KM on one single day if you haven’t exercised in ages or ever. You will end up with sore muscles and never go back to working out again. Instead, keep goals that are achievable and realistic. It doesn’t matter if you do a little below your capacity. Start at a comfortable pace and then gradually increase the goals when you are in a better frame physically to achieve it.
  4. Exercise with company: Being lonely and alone can be extremely demotivating for someone who is not used to the rigors of exercise. Hence, always join a group class or team up with a buddy who will not only be a good company but can motivate you and also challenge you to go that extra mile.
