Break up your workout
A workout does not need to be performed at a gym, nor does it have to be performed in long sessions. A workout can be broken down into two or three shorter workouts. For example, if your workout usually takes 40-45 minutes, break it down through the day and perform the exercise for 10-15 minutes over three periods.
This kind of workout is perfect for those who hate the gym. Simple exercises, like walking count toward effective exercises, which can help boost the metabolism. Also the same exercise does not need to be carried out, it could be altered. For example, fifteen minutes of walking in the morning, an afternoon skipping session, and an evening session of sit-ups, press-ups, squat thrusts, jumping jacks, and squats. Perform each of these exercises for one minute until your fifteen minutes is up. Use a timer.
As well as torch plenty of calories, shorter workouts will boost the basal metabolic rate, which is the rate at which the body burns calories at rest. Plus, muscle building exercises, such as body weight training, like the exercises above also help to burn fat for up to forty eight hours afterward.
This workout is perfect for those people who have a small gym at home or have various equipment, like weights, bike, rowing machine, stability ball. It is effective to break workouts into smaller, high intensive ones. Firstly, a long forty five minute session on the treadmill may seen torture to many people, but only 10-15 minutes will seem easy and effortless, plus it will still help the body build its strength and fitness.
Secondly, strenuous cardiovascular exercises performed over thirty minutes may actually burn into lean muscle tissue. To reduce this, you would need to follow a careful diet, and these take time and effort. Shorter workouts are perfect to sustain lean muscle tissue. The best way to burn fat and boost the metabolism over the long term is to carry out weight training exercises 2-3 times a week, so exercises like sit-ups, press-ups, bicep curls, leg press, abdominal curl, to name a few, with cardiovascular exercise like running, spinning, biking, or walking, as examples, carried out 2-3 times per week. Try to take a day off between any weight training to give the muscles time to rest.
Shorter workouts can still give you a great body and a lot of lean muscle tissue, but it can be fun if you already workout at home and find long sessions boring. Exercises like rowing can be hard to perform after a while. There is a great deal of work coming from the buttocks, abdominals, thighs, calves, shoulders, and back, so it is a full body workout. Break it up, and you’ll no doubt try to improve your times or distance. Same with running.
As long as any kind of exercise is carried out every or every other day for around thirty to forty minutes, it is beneficial to the body in many ways. Break up your workout into mini sessions, and it is more than likely you will stick to it and try to improve your fitness in this way.
