Workout Motivation Advice
While talking to Look, the gorgeous woman shared that you should workout only when you know why you want to. The reasons may be anything from losing weight to developing your body to even beat a disease. She thinks that this would overpower all other aspects related to how. (How to get started? How much to exercise? etc.)
Another advice shared by the star is that you should always train hard. If you are spending time in working out, don’t waste it on useless exercises. You should opt for exercises like body weight training, mix free weight training and HIIT intervals.
Warm Ups are Essential
The diva never skips her warm ups (and you should not too.) Skipping warm-ups may lead to injuries in many cases.
Whenever Jillian works out, she feels more confident, energetic and strength within her. These feelings help her to stay motivated to hit the gym even when she doesn’t really want to.
On Mixing the Workouts
The LA-born believes that mixing workouts is critical. When your body accepts the same type of workout everyday, you will not improve and the results you were getting earlier would stop showing up. So, focus on making your exercises diversified as it will help your body, adapt to a certain type of exercise and will contribute to making you a well-rounded athlete.
Starting with the Workouts
The successful author has a bit of advice for newbies too. If you are new to exercising, then you must make sure you train with a trainer, buddy, group or class. Working out with someone will help you stay motivated and it will help you get access to useful knowledge like how to avoid an injury.
5 Minute Exercises
If you are one of those people who like to exercise but always run short of time then here are a few 5-minute exercises shared by the renowned trainer that will surely help you. These exercises are based on the body part you want to target. If you wish to target your back, you should use the five minutes in doing dumbbell rows, pull ups and chin ups. To shape up your bum – lunges, step ups and squats can be the key. Push ups, curls, shoulder presses and dips should help you to strengthen your arms. Finally, bicycle crunches and planks are the best way to tone up your tummy.
Fitness Advice for Women
The TV personality thinks that women should balance their lives between responsibilities and fitness as reported by Kfor. Women should realize that perfection is not the goal. There would be times when women won’t be able to achieve all their fitness targets like a 90-minute yoga class. But they should not give up. Instead, they should do some exercise that fits their routine like taking out 4 half hours and making them count.
Family and Fitness
The entrepreneur thinks that connecting your family with fitness is a smart idea. You should take your spouse or any other family member with you to the gym. If you can’t do that, divide up the time by agreeing to go to the gym three days a week when your spouse stays at home and then reversing the things for the next four days.
