We are so glad that you have taken a step toward getting in shape. You probably know that you couldn’t get a sculpted body from eating junk food and lying in front of TV all day; however, it is not hard either. If you want to start your journey to having a hot body, here are some tips to start with.
1. Exercise Daily
Exercise daily for at least an hour with moderate physical activity such as brisk walking, running, jogging, etc. Although if you’re looking to lose a few pounds, you should do a higher-level intensity workout. Just make sure to not get injured during workout. Remember that after working-out, your muscles might ache a bit or feel irritating, but that means your body is changing for the better. Also always stay hydrated, stretch and cool down after finishing, and eat foods rich in protein to keep building your muscles.
2. Eat Healthy
Rule number one is to stay away from sweets, no matter how bad you want as sugar does no good for your shape. A single candy might take a hour of exercise to burn. Fruits and vegetables are the best choice helping you feel full for up to 3 or 4 hours such as apples, bananas, avocados, etc. while green vegetables such as spinach and broccoli keep the digestive system clean and running. Also, stick to lean meats that full of protein and healthy nutrients like beef, turkey and chicken. Seafood, such as, shrimp, and tilapia are also great alternatives to help keep muscles fit and ready for workouts. In addition, break down your meal into smaller portions. Eating six small meals a day is better than three large meals as less food in your digestive system is easier to burn and more energy is used toward your exercise. Also, keeping track of calories and food intake will help in planning out the essential physical exercising to burn out all extra energy.
3. Get Enough Sleep
Getting enough eight-hour of sleep is crucial to recharge the body’s batteries for daily working tasks as well as exercise. In case, you happen to feel tired at any point after work, remember to take a small nap before exercising which will be more effective to burn that extra calories.
4. Stay Motivated
The most important key to getting in shape is to set goals and keep a positive mindset. If you stay positive, it is easier to push yourself to get that fit body you’ve always wanted.
