Start Training and Losing

When trying to lose weight, the motivation starts to wane in the middle of training, which is understandable because it happens to everyone.

Losing weight no longer becomes appealing unlike the first time you’ve thought about it.

Hours, months, years of talking yourself into training are irrelevant because there is no better time to start to train than NOW!

If you really want to LOSE, you’ve got to start to TRAIN!

 

5 Tips for Weight Loss Beginners

1 – Choose the right training

It’s true when they say, if you like what you do, it will last a long time.

So, choosing the right sport is the top priority.

Some people like the experience of freedom when they run, others would rather spend time in a gym.

Whether you focus on running, swimming or dumbbell workouts, that’s all up to you.

But a combination of endurance and strength training is particularly effective.

2 – Train in the right order

If you want to get fit and lose weight, the right order of training also matters.

Ideally, as a beginner, you will do something for your muck and then walk on a treadmill or bike.

Or maybe the other way around.

However, the risk of injury would be too high, because the muscles are already tired from cardio training.

Instead, do strength training in the beginning. It ensures that you tap the fat reserves while running.

If you start out with sports, concentrate on light endurance training. Then as soon as the basic condition is there, you can start with strength training.

3 – Add variation and follow proper execution

Make your fitness program as varied and dynamic as possible.

Guided exercises are nice and good, but complex exercises with multiple sequences of movements are more effective.

Exercises on uneven ground are effective, because you train coordination and balance at the same time.

As well as core and kettle bell training, where both target different muscle groups at once.

No matter what sport, the correct execution of the movements is important. The right  technique condition tones muscles effectively.

If you decide to work with a trainer, you’ll kill two birds with one stone: you’ll gain better training and reduce the risk of injury.

4 – Maintain proper nutrition

Exercise and healthy eating are closely related because regular exercise will be useless if you are not getting the right nutrients for your muscles.

Making a slow and measured adjustment is much better and will be more effective.

Just like what the old saying says, “It is better to take small steps in the right direction than to make a great leap forward only to stumble backward.”

But healthy meals alone don’t lead to the desired success either and a sudden change in diet will deprive your body of food and increase food cravings..

It is best to pay attention to regular sports and always include protein rich foods in your diet. Proteins provide energy and building materials essential for muscle growth.

1Vegetables

Broccoli, spinach, cauliflower, arugula, cabbage, beetroot, zucchini, tomatoes, pumpkin, celery, asparagus, mushrooms, radishes, carrots, peppers, leeks, kohlrabi, kale, cucumber, chicory, artichoke, eggplant

5 – Don’t lose your motivation

Losing weight through sport works, but only with realistic goals, patience and discipline.

But even more important is motivation.

This ensures that you stick through it.

From time to time, you will experience unwillingness to train because what you’ve been doing has become routine.

That’s why having variety is important.

When this happens, change your sport or train with a friend to help you regain your motivation and focus.

Training alone may have its benefits and perks as you are only committed to your own goals but working with a team could add more fun in your routine.

A fixed workout plan helps in the beginning but as you progress, a little variation will give you that little boost of motivation.
