Fitness Planning Basics

Need help with creating a fitness plan? Here are some guidelines to consider if you have not done it before.

If you haven’t been exercising for a while, it may be a good idea to go for a full body screening to determine the state of your health. 

Once your doctor has given you the green light to start exercising, you should think about what you want to achieve from your fitness efforts. If you are overweight, your focus should be on developing healthier lifestyle habits to get rid of those excess pounds. 

Make sure your workout has a mix of cardio and strength training elements for it to be effective. Strength training is needed to build more muscles while cardio exercises are needed to help you burn more calories and develop stamina. Therefore, both of them are important.

Monitor your food intake. Since you will be recommended to take 5 to 6 small meals throughout the day at regular intervals of 3 to 4 hours, you have to pay attention to the portion size that you are consuming. Aim to add more veggies and fruits in your diet since they contain fiber which will fill up your stomach and reduce your intake of calories.

In conclusion, fitness is something that requires fine-tuning over a period of time before you can determine what really works for you. Therefore, you need to be patient with yourself and open-minded to try out different things.
