Guest Blogger: Milton Perret ??????????????????????????????????????

A healthy lifestyle is hard to follow, but if you are determined to achieve your fitness goals, you need to set your priorities straight. Proper diet and exercise are the keys to a healthy body. Even if you are not an expert, it is possible to incorporate changes in your life through easy and simple workout routine.

Choosing a workout routine is not that hard. In fact, with a little bit knowledge is all you need to getting started and of course, you also need to have the right attitude. With these things, you can overcome any obstacle that might come your way.

For beginners, it is always ideal to start with a workout routine that is simple and easy. This would mean exercising 3 to 5 times a week for at least twenty to thirty minutes. Experts claim that this is enough to maintain a healthy body. However, if you are trying to lose weight, you have to work harder.

The workout routine you choose should depend on your fitness goals. If you are trying to lose some pounds, you should be willing to put more effort and time into your routine. This means that instead of working out for twenty to thirty minutes a day, you need to do double the figures. Another thing is that you must watch your calorie intake. Follow this general rule – burn more calories than what you are eating.

Your regular workout routine should focus more on cardio exercises. Les Mills Pump is a great cardio program to start with for any fitness level. This simple and easy routine is ideal for maintaining a healthy weight. However, you should never overdo it. There should always be rest days.  Once you’ve achieved your desired weight, you can exercise three times a week to get those muscles moving.

The intensity of the workout routine must be maintained at 60% – 70% of your heart rate. Determine your maximum rate and perform low intensity exercises to burn calories and avoid the risks of common illnesses.

What are these easy and simple exercises? You can do walking, jogging, swimming, dancing, biking, rollerblading, hiking, and many others. Make sure that you perform a different exercise every one or two weeks. This is necessary to prevent the body from adapting to the workout routine, which is something that you must observe because once your body adapts to the same routine over time, you will not be able to burn calories or achieve your fitness goals.

It is always a good idea to consult your doctor before engaging in any workout routine. Aside from determining the heart rate, you also need to consider your weight, height, gender, age, genetics, activity level, metabolic rate, and many others. Only your healthcare provider can help you with these things. This is vital, especially if you are trying to lose weight.

On the first week, you can try walking exercises around your neighborhood early in the morning or at your most convenient time. On the next week, you can try another exercise like jogging or swimming. Commitment is significant if you want to work your way toward better living. Try these ideas today!
