Have a Personal Trainer
Not everyone has the budget for a personal trainer, but if you can spare a little, hire a personal trainer even for one session per week. The average market rate for a session with a personal trainer is usually P250 per hour, give or take. Hiring one ensures that you get professional guidance on how to exercise with the right form so you don’t injure yourself unnecessarily.
Choose the Right Gym Membership
If you’re thinking whether to choose a per session payment or to opt for a monthly gym membership, make sure you consider your plans. A monthly gym membership is much cheaper in the long run and comes with a lot of free perks if you plan on exercising regularly. If you plan on going for only once or twice a month, a per session would be much more cost effective for you.
Do Pre-Workout Stretches and Post-Workout Cooldowns
Stretching before a workout ensures that your joints and ligaments are warmed up enough once you start doing your exercises. Moreover, stretching before a workout can act as a circulation booster so more oxygen comes into your muscles as you do your exercises. Cooldowns are as equally important as doing so helps you get back your breathing and heart rate return to normal levels.
Have a Goal and a Specific Workout Program For It
If you want results, you have to have a goal. Do you want to lose weight? Or do you want to build strength? Your goal will determine the kind of workout program you should do. For instance, if you want to lose weight, you should naturally have more cardio exercises in your routine as they help burn off calories. If your aim is to build strength, you’ll have to have more resistance training workouts in your exercise program.
Go For an All-Around Exercise
Don’t make the mistake of focusing on just one part of your body every workout session. One example is to only do ab workouts if you plan on losing stomach belly. Ab workouts alone won’t lead to a sculpted stomach because only cardio exercises can help you lose weight. They must be done in tandem for you to be able to have abs. More importantly, focusing on just one body part can make you look disproportionate, which is hardly a good look on anyone.
