Tough, isn't it.
You've just managed to drop those few pounds, over the last few weeks, and now you're lighter.
Now you're ready to switch up a gear.
You have an event coming up, and you want to own it.
But you know the scary truth…
For you to own your journey, you have to take up an exercise routine.
You could run in college. No big deal…
Only problem being…
That was 10 years ago!
And a lot of things have changed over the years. Your body being one of them.
You knew you needed to reduce the weight with a good diet. You've got that covered.
That's the good news.
The not so good news? You are on the last stretch. And you have a big event coming up. And you want to go up a gear to really go for it…
And look out of this world!
Sadly, you know that diet, alone, is simply not going to cut it. You need to do more.
And you will do more!
Only one slight snag…which exercise work best?
Regular exercise should consist of a combination of cardiovascular exercise and strength training.
Quick disclaimer is needed here: always talk to your doctor to find out if it is ok to begin an exercise routine.
The reason being; if you have high blood pressure, whilst regular exercise will eventually help to lower your blood pressure, it may initially raise it to a level your doctor may not be comfortable with.
Always have that conversation and do what your doctor says.
Now, to get back on track.
Cardiovascular exercise consists of walking or running on a treadmill, using a stair climber, elliptical machine or even using a stationary bike and getting your heart rate up to a maximum level for about 10-12 minutes, tops.
Done with intervals (i.e. not done all at the same time, but in the form of interval training).
The reason is that cardiovascular exercises will strengthen your heart and lungs and increase your stamina as well as your VO2 max.
When looking for other exercise plans for quick weight loss, another aspect is strength training, sometimes known as resistance training.
This consists of using exercise machines and free weights, either at home or in a gym.
The best way to tell if you are doing the exercises correctly is to have someone watch you while you do a set, to make sure your form is correct. Incorrect form can cause injuries, and nobody wants to be in pain.
When you know that your form is correct, choose a light weight that is comfortable, and do your sets slow and controlled. Always tense your muscle, for increasing mind-muscle connection. Never bounce or fling the weight up and down, slow and controlled is the way to go!
On the diet front, just make sure that your diet should be full of lean meats, fish, fresh fruits and vegetables.
It goes without saying, but stay away from high carbohydrate foods like bread and potatoes initially.
Learn new, healthy ways to cook. Learn how to read the labels of the foods that you buy at the grocery store.
Make sure that the fat percentage to the calories is no more than 30%. Combining a stella diet and looking for an effective, smart exercise plan for quick weight loss is the way to lose those extra pounds quicker than you realise.
