Here’s a little about my workout-philosophy:
Get motivated every day: if not feeling going to the gym, don’t go. It’s better to gather your motivation for the next time you’ll hit your training and then you’ll bring 101% to your workout. Though, if you find yourself from the couch week after week, you might want to try taking the first step towards your exercise then or maybe think about starting another type of workout
Remember to rest: rest days are just as important for your success as training is. Body needs time to heal and refuel. I tend to have 1-2 rest days per week, although a little walk on those days as well can help ease muscle tension and keeps your metabolism going.
Think about your goals: it’s a good to review your progress every know and then. It’s important to remember that the scale isn’t the only indicator. A good way to follow your weight-loss is to measure your body: waist, arms, legs, hips, neck. You’ll see your body transform and it gives you motivation. Remember, each day you might not be at your goal but your closer than yesterday.
Proper training gear: is very important. Investing a few bucks for a technical t-shirt, shorts, shoes etc. is worth it. Your body stays cooler as the air flows more freely and the gear keeps you cool while training and warm when fatigued. And also (especially for the ladies) there are so cool looking training gear.
I tend to workout at the gym 3-4 times a week and also walk every day with my dog. Also normally I have 1-2 cardio exercises per week, this is my rhythm to go with, everyone has their own.
