6 Important Ways To Go About Fitness Routine
1. Take it slow and gradually build up.
Allow yourself time to warm up. You can then increase your pace for some time. However do not get overly tired.
As you continue, your stamina will improve and then you can gradually increase exercise time. Work your way up to 30 to 60 minutes of exercise most days of the week.
2. You can break things up.
You can spread your activity instead of doing all at the same time. Even shorter but more often sessions also have benefits. For example, 15-minute exercise session done three times daily may fit better into your schedule than a 45-minute session.
3. Be creative.
Other than the usual activities such as jogging, walking, you can include other activities you enjoy to your routine.
4. Listen to your body.
If you notice any pain, shortness of breath, dizziness or nausea, take a break. This may be a sign that you’re pushing yourself very hard. Also, you can take a day or two off.
5. Monitor your progress.
Few weeks after you begin your fitness routine, assess your fitness level again. This way you may discover whether you are exercising at just the right rate or maybe you need to increase the exercise time.
6. Final note…
Beginning a fitness routine is an important decision, but do not make it an overwhelming one. Ensure to plan it thoughtfully. Set your fitness goals. If in the process, you lose motivation, try new activities and set new goals.
Exercising with a friend or taking a class at a fitness centre may help, too.
