You know you should be exercising more, but the idea of a workout can seem overwhelming. The best workout is the one that you actually do. The more you exercise, the more benefits you’ll see. But sometimes it can feel like a lot of work to get it all together.
Here are 5 easy steps that will help you improve your workout routine.
1. Make sure you have everything you need
Before starting your workout, pick a place where you’re comfortable and have everything you need in one place (a gym bag with clothes and shoes, water bottle, etc.)
2. Warm up by doing some stretches
Doing some light jogging before jumping into heavy lifting is a good way to warm up your body and ready it for an intense workout session
3. Don’t overdo it
If something doesn’t feel right, stop doing it! Recovering from injury can be painful but if it happens, you need to give your body time to heal.
4. Find an activity that you enjoy doing
Most people complain how hard it is to stick to a workout but it’s more likely that you’ll keep doing it if you enjoy it!
5. Take a break between sets of exercises
Taking breaks is actually necessary and beneficial. To get the most out of your workout you need to let your muscles recover and build up strength for the next set of exercises!
6. Workout in a positive, comfortable space
Make sure your workout space has good lighting, air circulation, and privacy (if possible). Scheduling a private class in a personal training studio is a good idea.
Finally, remember that if you want to get the most out of your workout, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. This will help you avoid skipping workouts later on in the day due to fatigue or busyness.
