So, you are finally going to do it. You are going to work out and try to lose the weight you've been telling yourself you will lose. But where do you go to decide what is best for you?
When considering an exercise routine it is important to be sure that you consult your doctor first. If you have any medical issues, you may need to have a special work out routine which will allow you to stay safe.
After you consult with your health care physician and you have the green light to work out, how do you know where to start?
If you are and exercise newbie, picking out the right routine can be hard. Some people prefer finding work out videos and pretending to be there with the crowd. Other people will prefer to go to the gym. But what about people who want to lose the weight but don't want to spend a ton of money on accessories?
For those types of people there are great work outs available for you. These workouts will include cardio and strength building.
Typically, those who have a regular work out routine will recommend for you to exercise every other day at first. This give you the opportunity to get use to working out as well as gives your muscles time to recuperate.
When you first decide to work out, try running at least a mile. When I say running, I mean, run as long as you can, then walk for five minutes. Alternate this until you have completed a solid mile. Do not push yourself too hard as this can cause you to damage your muscle and push you back.
As you get better at running, try to avoid the walking until you can run a mile without needing to stop to run. When you can comfortably do this, make it two miles and alternate between running and walking again.
You will do this cardio work out every other work out. This will help to get your heart pumping. By doing cardio you tend to burn calories and drop weight but you do not typically gain too much muscle when only doing cardio.
If you want to tone up and make yourself look like a model on the cover of fitness magazine, you will need to be certain every other workout is a strength building work out.
Strength building work outs can start out relatively easily, with crunches, squats, pushups and arm workouts. Just be certain you work all parts of your body and do both sides the same amount of times.
By alternating between cardio work outs one day and strength building work outs the next, you should find that you will quickly lose weight then quickly build muscle up.
By doing this things you should find yourself quickly becoming fit! Remember though that is important to stay hydrated when working out so make sure to drink plenty of water and take a breather when you need!
