So let’s continue, last week our focus was working out for the first time and the importance of safety, training and familiarizing you in the gym. As I mention last week this is only part 1 of “Fitness 101 for beginners”. Now let’s move on to part 2.
Most people initial approach to this fitness/health lifestyle is to workout, workout more and workout a little bit more. Which is great, I love the motivation you have to getting your body into shape. You’re building up muscles that you didn’t have or using the muscles that have been dormant for awhile. Yet, you’re wondering why you can’t see any definition. Well how is your diet?
Depending on the individual the diet is the hardest part of this new lifestyle, but it’s the most important. In the “Lady Gaga” blog, I mention that the diet is 75 to 80 percent of your fitness and health routine. Why? In order to see that 6 pack, those beach arms and that sexy back you have to burn off that layer fat. For those who are trying to gain weight, this ideology also applies to you as well.
Carbs the scariest word in the fitness dictionary, guess what? It shouldn’t be. It’s all about eating the right carbs “Complex Carbs” and the right amount. I suggest that all beginners seek out a nutritionist to help design a diet plan for you.
I guarantee once you incorporate the proper diet along with your workout, you will start to see a big different in your body. This is going to boast in your confidence; because you are now achieving the goals you have been working so hard for.
This is part 2 of 3 for beginner; next week we’ll target cardio, I so love cardio. Enjoy your meals.
