If the idea of fitting a workout in your schedule seems daunting and looks tedious, trust me, you are not alone. Especially when we start working out, even 30 minutes seems never-ending and we can’t seem to get the groove. In the current times, we live in; it is a wise choice to stay active by working out as it boosts your immunity and strengthens your body. Since my virtual classes began, I had an overwhelming response from a lot of people who always wanted to attend my sessions, but never got a chance to. They loved the workouts I was putting up on my Insta, and I’ve also started sharing modified variations of each exercise I suggest.
People who never thought about working out in their lives have also been coming forward and looking for ways to boost their immunity and be fit to get ahead of things. Apply the saying, “Something is better than nothing,” and the best way to get some exercise is to move your body! Try walking around every hour for 10 minutes and stretch your body. In a day, you would generally work for around eight to nine hours. This way, you can sneak in more than 45 minutes of movement every day.
From my personal experience with years of back-to-back training sessions, I observed that one-on-one virtual classes have proven to be more productive! It’s just my student and me; they can ask me anything during the session and ask for a variation or other workout-related doubts. This helps me give time to one person entirely, which I can’t always do in a group session.
The Upsides Of Strengthening Our Muscles & Bones
Working out is like an investment you make for your golden years to pass without causing your body to hurt. Sometimes even relieve chronic pain. Probably that’s why it doesn’t have an age barrier. In a day, we sit or stand. We cannot avoid somebody movement during the whole day. If we don’t work out, these simple tasks seem like lifting a mountain.
Our spine is the trunk of our body that carries a lot of nerves that our body needs to function. If we tire it out or can’t keep it in a proper posture, it would cause severe ailments in the long run. We don’t tend to realise that while working on a system or watching TV hours at a stretch. Working out or giving a break helps your muscles and bones to function well and keep you fit at the same time.
In this digital age, we can’t function without spending a lot of time before our systems, not necessarily work. Or lie comfortably on the bed and hold your phone in your hands for hours together. Either way, it is terrible for your posture. Follow these simple exercises in a day so that you can get your work done without being afraid for your health.
8 Tips That Help You Build An Effective Workout Routine
1. Identify your level of fitness. This will help you understand and define what works for your body.
2. Modify your workout according to your body. Don’t tame your body into doing something that will cause pain and hurt to yourself or constraint yourself by saying you cannot do it.
3. Start with a smaller number of sets in the beginning and increase them gradually to get your body accustomed.
4. Speak to your instructor if you have problems with following an exercise they can suggest a few variations which would be more ideal for you. Ask a few questions if you are confused; this will help you stay motivated and will prove to be effective.
5. Know how to guide and position your body while performing any exercise. Always ask your instructor.
6. Don’t keep changing your workout routine or switch to intense workout routines when you are just starting to workout.
7. Do the best you can every day, every bit adds up. Try and track your progress through your phone, watch or other fitness apps.
8. Set a recurring alarm every hour that reminds you to walk for five minutes is ideal. Use this time to connect with your friends or relatives via call and make sure you talk and walk.
Being aware of your body’s limits can transform your exercise routine and life. I’ve trained many stars, and all of them know exactly what to do if I’m not available to train them. With years of working together, I know their bodies more than they know themselves. I know what works for their body without pushing it too the extremes. I’ve taught all my students in such a way that they know exactly how their workout routine is and how the temp needs to guide them during each set. Fitness is a way of life and can be only defined by you and your choices. So, chose wisely!
