Exercise is vital — we know that. It aids in weight management and body sculpting. It lowers your blood pressure and elevates heart health. It combats diseases like cancer, and mental issues like anxiety and depression. It improves your memory and brain function.
Despite its importance, it is surprisingly easy to get unmotivated to actually go exercise.
The Dynamic Dozen: 12 Ways To Kick Your Workout Plan Into High Gear
Here is a list of great tips that will enhance and/or inspire momentum into your exercise routine.
1. Don’t do it for others
Studies have demonstrated that people who stick to their workout schedules are the ones who are internally motivated. “I’m doing this for me.” Those who are exercising to show, impress or impact others, statistically do not sustain.
2. Get a head start with CoolSculptingTM
It may be more motivating to exercise and tone if you have less fat with which to overcome. At Sculpt Spa Las Vegas, we provide fat freezing technology called cryolipolysis, or CoolSculpting. This is the most popular non-surgical fat removal process available. It selectively freezes and kills stubborn fat cells. It does not harm your skin or other body tissue and your body naturally eliminates the dead fat cells. The results are permanent, and there is no downtime. You can resume your regular workouts right away.
3. Lift free weights
Integrate some free weight training into your regimen. Research has shown that cardio alone does not enhance your metabolism. Resistance training builds muscles that increase your metabolic rate. Free weights trigger an even greater hormonal response than weight machines according to studies.
4. Augment your results even further with CoolToneTM
While you are getting good results from your weight training, go for GREAT results by adding CoolTone at Sculpt Spa Las Vegas. CoolTone uses Magnetic Muscle Stimulation which induces thousands of high intensity involuntary muscle contractions in each session. This will give you faster, longer lasting results. The motivation you will achieve seeing the emerging success is immeasurable. Because CoolTone does not require downtime, you can go right back into your exercise routine.
5. Build weekly goals and track them
Keep track of your time each week, as well as your accomplishments. Experts suggest 150 minutes per week (30 minutes a day for 5 days) and two sessions of weight training.
6. Empower your body with vitamins
Prepare your body with powerful vitamins that are injected directly into your system. There is an important menu of options of vitamin injections available at Sculpt Spa Las Vegas. These include LEAN, which consists of B12, MIC, and L-Carnitine that covert fat into energy and aid weight loss; ATHLETE injections consist of BCAA- Isoleucine/Leucine/Valine, which provide you with the building blocks to build your muscles; and RELAXER, which consists of Folic Acid, B Complex and Magnesium, that reduce inflammation, strengthen your bones and muscles and help you repair and recover.
7. Carb before your workout
Carbohydrates are fuel and if your body is fueled before your workout, your body will have the energy to give you better results. You will feel better working out and stay motivated
8. Stay hydrated
If you are dehydrated when you go to work out, it will feel much more difficult. Keeping hydrated before, during and after, helps your performance and your ability to recover. It is recommended that you take in ½ to 1 ounce of water per your pounds of body weight per day.
9. Drink chocolate milk after your workout rather than commercial “recovery beverages”
What could be more motivating than a glass of cool chocolate milk, right? As it happens, a low-fat chocolate milk has a 4 to 1 ratio of carbs to protein, which is perfect to replenish your depleted energy stores, get the protein into your muscles where it can then stimulate muscle repair.
10.Keep your body’s NAD+ levels healthy
NAD+ is nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, an important coenzyme in your body cells that keep them operating at optimal levels. NAD+ is vital for the energy metabolism you need for your work out. It affects the mechanisms in our cells that covert food and oxygen into energy. It helps reduce pain and inflammation and can affect your mental health while working out keeping you from anxiety, depression and fatigue.
11.Eat protein before bed
Find a before bedtime snack rich in casein, a slow digesting protein, to keep your protein synthesis level up throughout the night. This will aid in optimal fitness results.
12.Get seven to nine hours of sleep a night
Less sleep will minimize your exercise performance and how many calories you burn. You will find it harder to come back stronger in your next workout as well. Sleep is the foundation for hormonal shifts that give the body the ability to recover and maximize exercise. Without enough sleep you will feel over-trained and hit your fitness plateau.
