Get Healthy With Storage Dunstable

It is easy to lose momentum with an exercise routine. This can be due to it being a New Years resolution which are notorious for being things people can’t stick to. It could be that you are doing it for the wrong reasons, wanting external validation via social media and not really doing it for your health or wellbeing. It could be something as simple as you enjoy working out at home but don’t have the room. Storage Dunstable can help you with this.

Within this article we are going to offer you some of our top tips for sticking to a new healthy routine and letting you know how storage Dunstable will help.

Set Goals But Keep Them Realistic

You will need to think about what you want to achieve from your workout and then set goals accordingly.

Do you want to lose weight? Build muscle? Increase your endurance? 

Your goals will determine the sorts of exercise you should be doing and will allow you to come up with a plan. 

Start Small 

It is really easy to get ahead of yourself and begin your healthy journey by working out four or five days a week. If you are a complete beginner to exercise, this is not advised. You and your body need time to get used to exercise. Starting at two to three sessions a week is the perfect amount for a beginner. 

You also should only do a small amount of varying exercises per workout. Again, sticking to two to three exercises is a good amount. This will allow your body to get used to exercising but also allow you to focus on proper form. 

If you are trying to build muscle and are doing weight training, you will also want to start with smaller weights. When it comes to weight training, one of the most important things is having proper form with each exercise. Proper form will prevent you from injuring yourself which is much more important than being able to brag about how heavy you can lift.

Don’t Skip Warm Ups…

It is really important that you warm up before any exercise. Warming up will help to prevent injury and improve your performance when you begin working out because your muscles will be warm. 

Warming up is very simple. You just need to do some aerobic exercises like arm swings, leg kicks, and walking lunges. Alternatively, you can warm up by doing easy movements of the exercise you’re planning to do. For example, walk before you run.

Do not hold any stretches whilst warming up as this can actually make injury more likely. 

… Or Cool Downs

Cooling down is also very important. It helps your body and breathing to return to its natural state and can help to prevent soreness. 

This is when you want to do stretches that you hold and you want to hold each stretch for 30 seconds. 30 seconds is how long it takes your muscles to relax within the stretch.

Rest Days Are Important

You must also make sure to have plenty of rest days in between your workouts. If you are being sensible and sticking to working out two to three days a week, this will be easy. 

Rest days allow your body (and mind) to recover from your workouts. They stop you from burning out and losing your motivation, and ensure you’re ready and able to give your next session your all. 

Also, rest days will also help you to get stronger as it is on recovery days that your muscles develop. Every time you work out you create microscopic tears in your muscle tissues. On your rest days, your muscles start to heal and grow back stronger, meaning you’ll be able to do the same workout with less effort in the future. Rest days will help to prevent injury and help your fitness progress. 

Keep It Fun

Within the fitness world, there is the old adage of ‘No pain, no gain’ but that is quite an old school way of looking at exercise. Ignoring pain can mean that you’re ignoring an injury but also exercising should be fun. Finding an exercise that you enjoy doing is the easiest way to keep at it and increase your fitness and health. 

So, whether you love yoga, dancing or weight-lifting, choosing to do the exercise you love instead of the exercise you think you should be doing is always the best way to go. 

Remember, You Are Doing It For You

Once you begin exercising, it is very tempting to post about it on social media but in doing so you bring everyone else into your fitness journey. This can lead to validation from some but it can also lead to your having to deal with other people’s opinions and criticism. Also, it makes your fitness journey all about other people when it should be about you. 

You have begun exercising for you – to better your physical and mental health. Talk about it with people’s opinion you value, if you feel this will be of help, but always remember, you are doing it for you.
