5 Simple Tips To Improve Your Workouts

Working out is an important part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but it can be intimidating for those who are just starting out. Here are some tips on how to get started:

1. Start Slow: Don’t try to do too much too soon. Begin with a few simple exercises and gradually increase the intensity and duration of your workouts as you become more comfortable. Simple exercises include body weight squats, push ups, banded pull-ups, and lunges.

2. Set Realistic Goals: It’s important to set realistic goals that you can actually achieve. Instead of aiming to lose a certain amount of weight in a certain timeframe, focus on improving your overall health by exercising regularly. Realistic goals include losing .5 to one lb of fat a week. Anymore than this is considered too much and not a realistic goal.

3. Choose an Activity You Enjoy: Pick an activity that you actually enjoy doing so that it doesn’t feel like a chore. Whether it’s running, yoga, or weightlifting, find something that you can stick with. I would recommend including some form of weight lifting to improve overall lean muscle mass. This will help you to lose more weight as the more muscle you put on, the faster your metabolism gets, meaning you will burn more calories at rest.

4. Make It Fun: Working out doesn’t have to be boring. Try taking a class, joining a sports team, or exercising with a friend to make it more enjoyable. We have plenty of articles on hikes, biking spots, and group workout classes you can try around the valley. Make it fun so it never gets boring!

5. Take Breaks: Make sure to give yourself breaks throughout your workout so that you don’t overdo it and risk injury. Breaks within your lifting workouts include 2-5 minutes of rest in between sets. This will allow you to attack the next set at 100% effort.

By following these tips, you can make working out an enjoyable part of your daily routine
