Bi-Weekly Exercise Tips
I just wanna have fun in my Workout.
It is that time to break
out of the gym rut and experiment with new workouts. The most ideal activities
are ones that don’t feel like exercise . For many riding bikes, going for
walks, and playing a game of tennis are high on the list. Switch up your
routine this year and try one of these fun workouts – you won’t feel like you’re working
out at all Walking is a great low-impact aerobic exercise
that almost anyone can do. It’s one of the best workouts because you can do it
just about anywhere, whether after work or after you wake up.. To make a walk
seem even less like exercise, take a walk
after dinner around the neighborhood with a
friend or a family member. Walk together at a brisk pace, about 15 minutes a mile;
if you weigh about 150 pounds, you’ll burn about 300 calories an hour. Swimming is another low-impact aerobic
exercise. You can get a great total body workout from swimming and have so much
fun doing it that you won’t think of it as exercise Swimming puts limited
stress on your joints, bones, and connective tissue, which makes it a suitable
option for almost anyone. Thirty minutes of lap swimming at a slow to moderate
pace burns about 286 calories if you weigh 150 pounds. Doing martial
arts activities can be a wonderful workout that doesn’t feel like you’re
working out at all. Any form of
this exercise will have lots of benefits, because they all
incorporate strength, coordination, and mental discipline. With martial arts,
proper training and equipment to prevent injury are a must . A 150-pound person
will burn about 340 calories for every 30 minutes of kickboxing, karate, or
Aikido. A game of baseball is a great way to be active and exercise
without that workout feeling. Baseball can improve your hand-eye coordination and
strengthen your upper body and your lower body. Baseball also improves your
concentration and mental focus you can burn about 170 Calories
. Exercise for nine
innings, and you’ll burn 765 calories When the weather cooperates,
there’s no better way to burn calories and enjoy the beauty of nature than with
a hike. Hiking produces many of the same overall health and fitness rewards
as walking . A half-hour of cross country hiking burns 204 calories, and
if you’re into hiking, you’ll probably find that 30 minutes of this workout
exercise isn’t nearly enough. Go with a group, and you’re sure to have more fun
than when you exercise alone or even in an exercise class. Dance is
another fun activity that also happens to offer one of the best workouts.
You’ll burn some calorieswhether you choose ballet, hip-hop, country-line, or ballroom dancing.
Dance is an exercise that encourages creativity and moving your body freely.
And, while you’re learning new moves, you’re also getting a great workout. Depending
on the intensity of your steps, dancing can burn between 130 and 250 calories
per 30 minute.
Bi-Weekly Diet Tip
Easy Tips Easy Weight loss, Yep Just that Easy
key to your transformation is lifestyle change as well as weight loss. Think of
your goal as weight control and remember that you want to stick to
your new healthy diet. If you “diet” and set unrealistic expectations, you’ll
probably regain any weight lost as soon as you go off the plan. But if you make
realistic lifestyle changes, the pounds will stay off. Before you jump into your
new lifestyle, prep this checklist.
Have the right mind-set and know why you want
to lose weight. It may be as simple as wanting to look and feel better or you
may have specific health needs, such as lowering your risk for high
blood pressure. Getting psyched up about the very real rewards of weight loss builds
motivation. Once you’ve decided on a weight-loss plan, map out all the steps
needed to implement it. At the beginning of each week, create a diet on paper
that you can use to guide your grocery shopping and avoid unplanned
Exercise is an important part of any weight-loss program.
But when people think about weight loss, they think about the foods they will
eat rather than what exercises they will do. Skipping exercise will hurt their efforts.
Working with a trainer will help you map out an exercise routine that fits into
your busy schedule, Logging your diet and exercise activity is key
to weight-loss success. Promise yourself to religiously outline every aspect of
your weight loss process. If you’re faithful about recording what you eat for
breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you’ll see patterns and routines emerge. You can
find solutions to the problems that have derailed your previous efforts. The more realistic you
are about your goals,
the more likely you are to reach them. Remember that you’re developing a
lifelong strategy, so don’t set unattainable time limits
