Seeing Is Believing! Getting Results Fast!
Updated: Sep 29, 2018
In order to guarantee a weekly progression there are three key areas to focus on in order to see results fast.
1. You Are What You Eat
I hate to say it but this is a FACT.
I would love to prove you wrong and say you can eat whatever you like provided you exercise but I would be telling a porky pie. Healthy eating is a way of life and needs to be sustainable.
Using a tracking app such as My Fitness Pal is a great tool to help you quantify the food you eat.
Another helpful tool is taking into consideration the Energy Equation. Energy Intake (food and drink consumed) v Energy Output (energy used whilst resting for example, breathing/blinking etc and energy used through physical activity) - for example, you many wish to maintain your weight and if so, then you should consume as many calories as you burn, or alternatively if your goal is to lose weight then you may need to burn more calories than you consume.
2. This Is A Lifestyle Not A Fad
This plan is not just for Monday to Friday and therefore it needs to be sustainable and consistent. Therefore I would recommend choosing a programme and activity(s) that you enjoy and can stick to which in turn will ensure you avoid binges and missing those much needed classes.
3. Embrace the New You and Challenges Ahead
When choosing a workout plan, try to progress as opposed to regress. Follow the same plan 2-3 times per week with a view to progressing each time by lifting more weight, performing more reps or adding more sets. Alternatively you can increase time, distance, speed when covering cardio. It is this progressive overload that will lead to adaption to the body.
