I have been working out on and off now for quite a few years, but I have never really managed to stay on top of things and pull through with exercise for a longer period of time. In January 2015 I finally decided to make the change and focus on exercise and working on becoming a stronger and better me.
Have you noticed how hungry you tend to get after a good workout? This is because your body has used up its energy stores and is burning calories at much higher rate then when you are in a resting state.
Fitness and gym floor in the 21st century is not only about shedding the pounds or getting healthier, its also about the style.
If you have ever shown any interest for fitness or are spending some time in the gym, you might have heard the fitness professionals use a term S.M.A.R.T Goals when talking to their clients. This term is/ or should be the base of every workout program designed for a client or anyone who has decided to get on the fit train by themselves.
Most of us have tried to achieve some sort of fitness goal at least once in our lives and probably failed. Failure very often is what puts us off from trying again , no matter if it’s a fitness related, relationship related or business related failure, people very often tend to stay away from what they have failed in to avoid future disappointment.
Staying in shape and not losing the strength you have gained in the gym can be though at times, when you’re traveling on a holiday or for work.
So you want to get that butt in shape, but can’t find those few hours you need to spend in the gym on weekly basis, to achieve?
So have you ever wondered what actually happens to your body when you skip the gym, how long does it take for the muscles to start atrophy, what will you loose first strength or endurance?
In this day and age, with the access to internet and other educational resources, I am still highly surprised how much people DONT know about fitness and its benefits. People seem to be especially clueless about weight lifting and the long list of benefits resistance training gives us.
When thinking about our abs or so called six pack, most of us mostly concentrate on doing exercises like crunches or sit ups, to build our rectus abdominis muscle[six pack] , but very often we tend to forget that our abdominal muscles consist of more then just the six pack muscle.
