4 tips for your next workout

1.Unless you want to “decompose” yourself from your default butt, you’re going to have to do deadlifts. It just will be. Since you don’t want to go flat out with the deadlifts you already have, here’s a short list of exercises that work:

Combine some dumbbells. Deadlifts are as much about efficiency as they are about leverage and ability. Improving your metabolism will lead to healthier choices. Combine some dumbbells for deadlifts (see pictures, and what are you up to these days?)

Head to the gym when you get in. We have to work out as soon as we get up because what we don’t have at 8 a.m. becomes an alternative that comes about later in the day. Being in there when you get out of the house is a productivity hack that gives you an even better workout. Do not forget to eat.

No nutrition means fat, and you need energy for the whole day to get things done. Go to the market and grab those little, healthy snacks like protein bars, nuts, etc. when you leave the house. Do NOT go to the store hungry. It’s not going to work. Eat whatever you need and do not skip out on the incredible 3:2:1, as well as anything that makes food healthy.

2. Take a couple days off. If you’re serious about losing weight and in a rapid time, you’re going to have to take a week or two off. This will give you more chances to hit that all-important weight loss milestone. At this point, when you add all the gym time to your workout plan, you’re cutting out a lot of calories. It’s pretty easy to tip the scales out of control. Enjoy your weekends. You’re moving slower than you ever thought you would so it’s no surprise that you’re calmer and probably gets more done in less time. Maybe the weekend will actually be the weekend you give your workout regime a shot.

Look at the things you’re doing and make a note of the rest. It’s also important to consider how you’re storing your energy to account for training. If your juices aren’t flowing, don’t overload the bread rack. You may also want to consider keeping a small section of energy in a dedicated spot for your workout (if you’re having a hard time waking up, if you’re not in the right mood or if you’re running out of steam, you’re probably the one holding it back from your full potential).

3. Pay attention to your breathing. Everybody does it. If it doesn’t seem as though you’re breathing properly or you’re getting weak in your heart, I’d suggest slowing down. Some “improper breathing” is just normal. It’s ok to have a couple minutes of heart palpitations but be careful not to let it fester. Eventually, I’ve found myself becoming fatigued even before I work out. If you get that feeling, know that your body needs to go slow.

Monitor your heart rate. Different types of heart rate monitor devices can detect it from your wearable watch or your exercise tracker. Don’t throw it away if you have it. These measures are helpful to know where you’re slipping off the high side of your current heart rate.

4. Does your body burn more fat when you’re sick? Yes, it does. If you’re sick, you need to ask your doctor if you have an infection and if there’s any nutritional or emotional help you can do for the rest of the day. There’s never a better time than a day when you’re sick to workout! This is a great exercise for people who are in the process of taking medication or having a medical procedure. They can feel calm and comfortable being active again.

Follow these tips, and you will get your next workout in.
