Los Angeles, CA – 2/20/2014—
Exercise is beneficial in any form, but for those creating awell-balanced program that they will follow for any length of time there arecertain steps they should follow to make the program effective. There is a method to the madness of planninga workout routine, and here are some things to avoid when planning a routine.
A common goal among those creating a workout program is tolose body-fat and become healthier overall. In order to achieve this, be sure to schedule resistance training priorto cardio exercise. Research has shownthat engaging in cardio before strength or resistance training can actuallyslow down body-fat reduction and may actually prevent gains in strength. A good workout should be organized with awarm-up, engagement in resistance or strength training followed bycardio-vascular training or aerobic exercise, and finished with joint mobilityand flexibility exercises.
When planning out a strength training program, be sure tohit all the muscle groups in each workout, or alternate different groups ondifferent days. Yes, we may want largerarms or thinner legs and think that engaging in only those exercises will bringfaster results, but this assumption is untrue. Performing exercises that only target one area of the body can leave onefeeling unbalanced, and will not result in spot reduction or bring quickerresults than full body training would.
Speaking of quick results, one of the biggest mistakespeople make is giving up on a program or changing its focus when they don’t seeimmediate improvement in their physique or strength. In order to lose weight and gain strength,diet and exercise are both necessary and reducing calories combined with physicalmovement will eventually lead to weight loss, but it won’t happenovernight. A good amount to lose is 1 to1.5 pounds each week as more than this can lead to loss of muscle or result ininjury.
Give a program six to eight weeks before changing the focusto ensure the body has time to adapt before working into a new challenge.
