The Essentials of Options – 101

Things that Can Upset Your Fitness Goals

If you feel frustrated that you are never reaching your fitness goals despite the efforts that you have given to it, it’s time to check out if your are making one of these common health mistakes.

Following the wrong diet plan

To successfully trim on your body fat, you have to devote 70% of your fitness program on your diet and cardio exercise activity and 30% must be directed to adding lean muscle mass to your body frame, which means that if you have to attain these percentages, you have to be extra efficient in burning calories. You might think that to build muscle mass is all about having just a diet on protein shake, but this just leads to a stomach break down, which is counterproductive. Pay attention to the quality of your nutrition and eat healthier, if your goal is weight loss, since when you lose weight solely through dieting, the weight you lose will be predominantly muscle. The ideal fitness program to lose weight is a combination of improved diet, cardio workouts and resistance training, this contributes to losing proportionally more fat and gain muscle, which means that you don’t simply lose weight on the scale, you change your body’s shape and composition.

Prioritizing the wrong training exercise program

Training too hard is not the answer to losing weight, because your body can no longer keep up with the demands being placed on it. But learning to incorporate strength and balance training is a key part in achieving your health and wellness goal.

Exercising only to lose weight

The ideal weight-loss goals include aiming to have more energy through the right foods, sleeping better, improving your bone density, getting the right mood, increasing strength and a balance exercise program, instead of doing solely an exercise program and nothing else to lose weight.

Having the wrong fitness concept

When people establish unrealistic goals or have the wrong perception of what a fitness program is, they automatically fail to meet their weight-loss objective because they’re not fully aware of the reality of a fitness program. The reality of a well-meaning fitness program encompasses a healthy, weight-loss goal that respects your health history, current lifestyle, age, gender and genetic makeup.

Stress factor

Stress will always factor into our life’s activities and if you allow it to rule you, it can biologically cause an increase in the heart rate, breath rate, and blood pressure, while all other body systems, such as digestion, immune response and detoxification, slow down and your body will hold onto fat to energize you back. In learning to manage your stress, you restore your regular body metabolism and, at the same time, allows for the nervous system work healthily.
