Basic Steps To Get In Shape

Oh, so you’ve invested a great amount of time and effort on your fitness regime and are quite a fitness freak? But you’re not all there till you have fine-tuned your jiggles. So, take a good look at some of the bodily parts you would like to set slightly straight and get started.

The easiest way to begin is by start eating mini meals right through the day at regular intervals of two to three hours. Also, avoid eating two to three large meals a day. You do want to be able to see your feet when standing up, right?

Trash the toxins by drinking at least seven to eight glasses of water a day since they add to your body weight. Try and give the sugar and oil a great send-off. You can do without them, can’t you? Instead, load up on fresh fruits and raw veggies as much as possible. Most importantly, cut out the aerated drinks and alcohol totally. Stick to red wine, if you must drink.

You also got to get your sneakers on and do a cardiovascular workout for about 35 to 40 minutes, at least thrice a week. Gradually, you can take that to six times a week as you get fitter. Don’t over do on the abdominal workout, or that particular area will look bulky and protrude.

You also need to make sure you keep a check on your breathing. Exhale when you feel the maximum tension while exercising and inhale when the going is easy. The exchange of oxygen between the lungs and the working muscles is very important. You could start with two sets of 10 repetitions on each exercise. As you get fitter and stronger and the exercise becomes a cakewalk, you can slowly increase the reps and add another set at a later stage.

Remember, your technique, correct body posture and alignment are very crucial, not only in getting the desired result but also in preventing injury. So, you need to pay special attention to these. And don’t sweat if you do fewer reps in the beginning and can’t complete them all. Just go slow until your body is used to it and you’ll get the desired results almost immediately. So start smiling and get to work.
