The first, and most important step in beginning to look for workout routines and eating healthier, is setting realistic short and long term goals. In order for a person to find a workout routine that works best for them, they have to consider the time they can dedicate to the routine, and most importantly, their motivation to lose weight and develop a healthier lifestyle. There are three basic levels of workouts in reference to workout routines, which are beginner, intermediate, and advanced.
By choosing and sticking with a realistic and efficient physical fitness routine, you will achieve a healthier lifestyle and benefit your life in several ways. Steps The first step to obtaining a proper workout routine is to decide what exercises to utilize for which muscle group. The second step is to determine how many repetitions and sets to do for each exercise. The final step to achieve the best workout for you is to figure out how many days out of the week you are going to dedicate for the gym.
In the figure 1, I have included a sample workout for my back and biceps as a guide to what a workout for those muscle groups should include, such as exercises, sets, and repetitions. Running is also an important part of an exercise routine. With adding running into your daily weightlifting routine, you will be able to lose more weight. Running helps boost your energy level, and increases the amount of calories lost.
In figure 2, I have provided my weekly running routine as an example of a balanced running schedule. Figure 2 Conclusion With adding a proper workout routine and implementing cardio into your daily workout, you will improve your overall health. The most important thing in picking a routine is picking one that works for you. The routine you pick has to keep you motivated, and help you reach your goals in a timely manner.
