Quite some time ago, I did a post about the Top Ten Tips for Getting Fit. I only covered the first five and left the other half for another post so it wasn't too long and overwhelming. It's been six months since and I'm finally bringing you all the rest of the tips - no less important than the first five in the old post.
So, to recap, the first time, I talked about:
(1) Mindset (2) Setting Goals (3) Avoiding Ketosis (4) The Scale (5)Why Build Muscle?
This second part has more to do with actual physical activity. So, let's get started, shall we?
Hydrating is extremely important!
Drink half of your body weight in oz (if you're 125lbs, you should be drinking around 62oz of water daily)!
70% of the human body is made of water - we need it to maintain overall health.
The colder the water is, the better. You're going to be burning more calories by warming up the water.
Do it for the beautiful skin!
Nutrition is either going to make you or break you.
Nutrition : Exercise = 70 : 30!
Weight loss friendly food can taste amazing!
Carbohydrates : Protein : Fats = 60 : 30 : 10!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!
Cardio is not enough!!!
You will only get a smaller version of the way you look like right now.
You will lose fat, but you will also lose muscle.
Weight training first, then cardio.
Limit your cardio workouts!
HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is your best friend.
If you like the treadmill, make sure to watch THIS.
Start slow and pay attention to the technique.
Divide targeted body areas into separate days!
Skip the ab training in the beginning - your core is already engaged enough.
Targeted fat loss does NOT exist!
That brings us to the end! If you'd like to see the video with everything explained in a bit more detail, it will be linked down below. Feel free to ask any questions you may have!
