- Consistency and patience is key!
It takes time to adjust to a new lifestyle with new habits. But when you keep going, inspire and motivate yourself and really believe that you will feel and look your best, your patience will be rewarded
- Find yourself a workout buddy!
Whenever your in need of some extra motivation a training buddy is perfect and makes you even more accountable. Work out together, cook and share a delicious meal and talk about your achievements.
To get most out of the muscle you are trying to work, really engaging your mind to yourbody during the workout is a helpful tool. If you want to lean out, picture your muscles getting tighter and your fat burning.
- Recording and adjusting your weights!
With your strength and endurance increasing the repetitions and tempo you performed the exercises in in the beginning will not suffice to challenge you. However, don’t overestimate yourself and slowly, steadily adjust the weight according to your ability. Form is what matters most!
- Muscle activation before the workout!
If you don’t ‘feel’ your muscle as well as you would like to during the exercises, activating them with a few movements before you start the workout is very helpful. This can be, grabbing a resistance band or light weights and focusing on which muscle you are about to train. Stretching is another great approach to prepare your body for the workout.
