To lose a few kilos, in addition to the diet itself, which is extremely important, physical activity plays a very important role. It allows us to burn calories, fight body fat, sculpt and build muscles, and give us a sense of joy and happiness. One workout is geared towards weight, the other is about sculpture, one is to help you lose weight, another to tone your body, others increase your circumference. Today we would like to focus on training as a great way to fight unwanted weight. How to train? What training should you do? What to remember?
Cardio training combined with strength training
Many people only use cardio training if they want to lose weight. They prefer to get tired and sweat rather than pick up weights. What’s more, an increasing group of people believe that strength training is not a way to lose weight, but to increase muscle mass, which results in even greater growth. All this is not true. Workouts in the gym are the most effective for weight loss. Just get on some multi-joint exercises to be able to achieve two solutions in one – burn fat, build muscle. If we train, whether with the weight of our own body or with weights, we will start to burn fat, and also carve and increase our muscles, which will make the body firm and attractive. What’s more, increasing muscle mass causes fat tissue to burn much faster. It’s all together so that the more muscles, the better the burning. Should we defend ourselves against the gym? Not at all.
If you don’t have much time to spend hours in the gym, interval training, and therefore increased speed, will definitely be the perfect option. Here, it’s not enough to run in a steady motion on the treadmill, because it will not increase your heart rate, increase breathing speed or wind your body to work. Intervals are very fast exercises interspersed with exercises of reduced intensity. So you can choose a variety of forms of such training, including, for example, running, cycling, or gym training. The key is to have a watch, willingness and scope, and these fast training sessions will certainly bring us results very quickly. Workouts with increased intensity have the fact that we burn calories for a long time, long after the workout, which in the case of ordinary cardio does not work at all.
Multi-joint workouts – full-body work
If we have excess fat on the stomach, it’s not enough to exercise only that body part, because it does not work that way. We are not able to lose body fat from one part of the body with certain exercises. We need to introduce multi-joint workouts on all parts of the body, because this way we burn calories and get rid of unwanted fat. The hardest part is losing weight from your stomach, hips, buttocks and thighs. These are the most difficult places to lose fat, which is why you need to be patient and consistently do your part, still moving step by step. If we do a squat, we do not only train our legs, but strengthen the buttocks, as well as our core. If we do a plank, we do not only involve the stomach, but also the arms and legs. So let’s choose exercises that involve our whole body in them.
And finally, an extremely important element is to always have time to exercise. We can’t look for excuses, we can’t let go. The more often we do it, the sooner we will give up completely. If we want to lose weight, we have to work hard for it and this is the most important thing. Nothing comes easy and you won’t get anything without hard work. As much as we give, these will be the effects and that is what should be kept in mind. If we lack motivation, let’s look for it in ourselves, let’s encourage friends, husband, sister, anyone to train together. Nothing will do itself and it only depends on us what our body will look like in a few months.
Losing weight is not an easy and short-term process. It requires sacrifice, a lot of hard work and certainly a long time to see the results we want. The main thing is not to give up and keep doing your job. If we succeed, we will definitely be able to achieve the desired reflection in the mirror. And remember, even if after a few weeks kilograms stand still, it does not mean that we are doing something wrong. They always fly down like crazy at first, and then stop temporarily, just to drop again, but at a much slower pace. This is how it should look so as not to achieve the yo-yo effect. Let’s do our job, don’t look at anyone, don’t compare ourselves and enjoy every, even the smallest effect.
