Exercise can help you get in shape, lose weight and it can be fun. Whether you join a gym or exercise at home, work out at night or during the weekend, this article offers tips to help you squeeze a few hours of fitness into your schedule whenever you can. You should see an amazing difference very quickly, and not only on the scale.
It can always be difficult to find time for exercise. If you have problems finding the time (or energy) to put in an hour a day in at the gym, try breaking it up into ten minute incraments. Even three ten-minute stints of activity a day, can boost your heart rate throughout the day. Many people also find that by adding ten-minute bursts of activity into their schedule, they have more stamina and are able to increase the amount of energy they put into each activity.
In order to maximize your fitness routine, be sure to keep your workouts under an hour. This will help to prevent injury, as well as get the most out of your workout. You can actually lose muscle and testosterone because your body goes into a minor state of shock due to release of a chemical called cortisol.
One of the easiest ways to accomplish your fitness goals is to have a fitness buddy. Find someone you are close to that is also looking to shed some weight or tone some muscle. You will be able to support and motivate each other making it easier to reach both of your fitness goals.
If you apply these tips, you should be able to live a healthier life. Fitness helps you look great but it also helps you age gracefully and live longer. Consider other healthy habits such as eating better or quitting smoking. Fitness is only the beginning of a journey that will take you to a place where you can love your body.
