The Key To Maintaining Your Motivation – 2 Strategies

Probably the biggest factor in people failing to lose weight and not reaching their fat loss/fitness goals is failing to maintain motivation. So what can you do to ensure you keep exercising and eating healthily once the inital novelty of the new regime wears off?

It’s great when you start exercising. You will probably see some weight loss results fairly quickly as long as you are make the right exercise choices. However, inevitably at some point you will hit a weight loss plateau, or get bored with the exercise and grind to a halt.

 This means you are back to square one quicker than ever! So how can you stop this happening?

1/ Variety - It is essential that you constantly vary the workouts that you are doing. This will keep your body guessing and therefore progressing. This will in turn stop you hitting the dreaded weight loss plateau.

2/ Regularity and Longevity - The key to maintaining fat loss is increasing your metabolism. To do this you must exercise regularly (most days) and over a long period of time. For a lot of people it can take months for their matabolism to increase and repay them for all their hard work. That sucks I know, but it’s just the way it is. But the important point is that it will happen as long as you don’t give up on the exercise regime too soon!

 Today’s Takeaway – Make your workouts varied and give your metabolism the time it needs to increase. Don’t give up before it has the chance!

How Hannah Waterman Lost 2 Stones In 2 Months

Ex-eastenders actress Hannah Waterman lost a fantastic 2 stones in 2 months recently. Check out the transformation below! Even better than losing the weight, she seems to be keeping it off. Hannah employed a specific form of training to burn the fat,  so what’s her secret?

INTERVAL TRAINING. This is the method used to generate these fantastic results. Interval training can take many different forms, which I will go into, but basically it involves doing short bursts or exercise where you work as hard as you can. This is what stimulates your metabolism and gets you burning fat.

Example 1 – One way Hannah successfully used interval training was with running/jogging. Don’t panic if you hate running, you can use the following example for many other activities. You could jog for 2 minutes, then for 30 seconds increase the speed and work as hard as you can. Repeat this sequence 6-8 times. You could replicate this workout using a bike, cross trainer, rower. etc. The important thing is you work as hard as you can during the 30 second phase.

Example 2 – Do a varied workout, going from one exercise to the next in quick succession working as hard as you can. So you might do press-ups for 20 seconds, squats for 20 seconds, then sit-ups for 20 seconds, etc. You should do up to 5 minutes total workout before taking a rest. The good thing about this form of interval training, is you can design the workout so when one body part is tired you then work a different body part. This allows you to keep going for longer than example 1 would allow.

Today’s Takeaway -  There are many different examples of interval training.  But when used correctly, it can generate excellent fat loss results as Hannah Waterman has shown.

The Secrects Behind 'Toning Up'

Apart from ‘weight loss,’ ‘toning up’ or getting ‘toned muscles’ is the most common fitness goal. Men and women alike want to know what exercises and what food they should be eating to achieve toned figures and physiques. So what’s the secret?

It’s important to clear up what ‘toning up’ actually is to begin with. The idea that muscle actually ‘tone up’ is a myth. You either build lean muscle or lose lean muscle. Don’t panic ladies, what I am about to advise you to do WILL NOT make you big or bulky. It will give you the ‘toned’ effect. But it’s important to understand what you are actually trying to achieve, and that’s to build lean muscle.

Firstly you must lift weights and/or do bodyweight exercises. This could be anything from doing traditional free weights in a  gym, or simply doing press-ups, squats, etc at home.  Doing these sorts of exercises on a regular basis, as opposed to doing cardio, will allow you body’s muscle tissues to break down and build back up stronger and leaner, giving you the ‘toned effect.’

Secondly, you must eat a high protein diet. So poultry, fish, etc, should make up a proportion of every meal you have. For the same reason as above, it will aid your body to build and sustain lean muscle. This will not only make you look more toned, but allow you to burn more fat also.

Today’s Takeaway - ‘Toning up,’ or more accurately building lean muscle, is a straightforward combination of correct nutrition and correct exercise.

Best Stomach Exercises – The Truth

Finding the solution to flat, toned abs and fat-free stomach muscles is the most common goal of all. Most people will spend years working out with the exercises they think will help them achieve these flat stomach results. But the truth is very few people understand the key exercises behind a flat stomach. But you are about to!

Most people think sit-ups and crunches are the answer to flat abs. THEY ARE NOT!

Your stomach has many, many different muscles, all of which need to be worked for maximum fat burning results. Sit-ups work very few of these muscles. So no matter how long you spend doing them, you must do other exercises if you ever want a flat stomach.

So the answer is doing exercises that engage all of the muscles around the stomach in 1 exercise. This way you will be burning far more calories and far more fat than you ever have before.

There are many exercise that do this, but the best place to start is with the front and side planks;

 Front Plank

Position: Raise up on your elbows and toes holding your body up (rest on knees if this is too difficult).

 Technique: Raise hips so your whole body is in a straight line. Hold position still.

 Points To Remember: Make sure your back remains flat, i.e. your hips don’t sag down or raise up too high. Make sure your elbows stay directly beneath your shoulders and don’t slide further forward.

Side Plank

Position: Lay on your side with legs straight and your elbow directly beneath your shoulder. Place one foot over the top of the other.

 Technique: Push hip off the floor, resting on your feet and elbow. Squeeze the hip as high as possible and hold position still.

 Points To Remember: Keep your body straight, i.e. don’t lean forward or backwards. … Read more->
