Working out in your home? Here are some quick tips
Wednesday, July 25, 2018
 

Due to many reasons, it is possible that you might be working out in your home. If this is the situation, you should be sure that the efforts taken by you at home would be paid off in some way or the other. For this, the following quick tips can be of help to you.

1. Maintain a work log

Maintaining a workout log should be the first thing on your mind because it will have a considerable impact on your schedule. With a workout log, you will be in a position to not only analyze your workout sessions but also be sure whether you are making progress or not. If you are not making any progress, you are making a mess of your workout sessions at home. So, you should make sure that you maintain a workout log at home. Maintaining a workout log is not a difficult task. There are a couple of applications available online that will be good enough for you to maintain your workout logs.

2. Get the equipment

Get the necessary equipment at home and be sure that you are ready for your workout sessions in the way you would want to enjoy the session. Investing in the equipment is not a big deal for many of us, but if you feel that you do not want to invest in the same at the moment, you can even think of renting out the same. There will be options available for you in this case, and so you should make your decisions accordingly.

3. Get yourself ready for the sessions

It is important to get yourself ready for the sessions because if everything is perfect, but you are not in the mood to work out, things will turn out to be terrible for you. In fact, this is one of the biggest challenges people face while thinking of working out at home. The atmosphere is not always supported for people to enjoy a confident and happy workout session at home.

4. Maintain an ideal surrounding to enjoy your workout at home

 It is important to know that while working out at home, having an ideal surrounding is extremely important. For example, you cannot work out in the kitchen because you will be tempted to consume food more often. At the same time, it is not the best place to enjoy your workout session. On similar lines, working out in a room where you do not have enough space will also make things difficult for you to enjoy your workout session.

Monday, July 31, 2017
 

Maintaining a workout log is important for everyone working out. People do not realize that there are many benefits of maintaining a workout log. Let us look at the benefits and inspire you to take the necessary steps to maintain a workout log.

1. It is a reminder of what has been done and what is to be done

Workout log helps you know whether you have achieved your daily goals or not. It will also help you in analyzing what is to be done and how. At the same time, it will help you check whether you’re in a position to achieve the objective or not.

2. Workouts let you know what is necessary for your body

For example, if you have enjoyed a workout session, it is possible that you might have pushed yourself to the extreme limits and to get back in shape, you need a physiotherapy session. So, it will help you stay focused on your goals and accordingly decide what can be done to keep yourself in the best possible condition.

3. Let yourself know whether you’re pushing yourself to the extreme limit or not

Most of us are given a schedule by an expert, and we keep following it for months. However, there is a point when you’re good with it, and you would want to upgrade yourself. Upgrading yourself is not a difficult task, and you can achieve the objective by simply looking at the possibilities. For this, you need your workout log, and the analysis is to be done by an expert.

Comparing yourself to others is often good because it helps you push yourself and be better with every upgrade. However, it will not be easy for you to compare yourself with them till the time you maintain a workout log. The comparison is often good, but you should keep in mind that it is for you to push yourself to the next level and not to make yourself feel good. There are many people who compare workout logs and, if they are better, they feel happy and do nothing about improving. This is not the right thing to do, and so we hope that you’ll keep this in mind while comparing yourself with others.

Nutrition tips for athletes
Monday, February 20, 2017
 

Traveling to different places for competitions can be hectic, and new athletes are usually worried about the cost factor, especially if they are visiting a popular city like Miami. Cheap accommodation in Miami can be a problem, but an athlete should entirely focus on health and nutrition to give him they are best for the competition. If you are an athlete, you are already guided by many people as far as health and nutrition are concerned.

A few important guidelines are noted below even.

 

1. Carbohydrates are your main fuel

It is important to have a diet that gives you the right amount of carbohydrates in order to help you exercise in the best possible way, and you can be sure that the entire session will end as expected. When we exercise, the body changes glycogen into energy. We need enough energy in our muscles to perform the workout.

 

2. Tracking your protein intake is important

It is important to get enough protein, but it is also important to know what amount of protein is good enough for you. Many people assume that since protein is important, they start fuelling their body with protein in every possible way and end up having too much of it. This is not a smart thing to do.

As an athlete, you should ask your coach and dietician to guide you with the protein intake to be consumed on a daily basis. Your dietitian should even be in a position to guide you with the night food items that should be consumed by you to satisfy your daily requirement of protein.

 

3. Fatty foods

Fatty foods are not a complete no for athletes. It is, in fact, important to have a decent chunk of fats in our daily meals. Facts convert into energy when carbohydrate sources start running low in our body. This is extremely important in the case of specific events like marathons.

However, you should not consume fatty foods on the day of the event. This is important because it can upset your stomach hand you do not want to pull out of the event because of an upset stomach.

 

4. Fluids are your lifeline

Irrespective of the weather conditions, you should think about consuming enough Fluids that can help you stay hydrated at all times. Some athletes make the mistake of drinking Fluids only when they are thirsty. This is up and its choice to make because, by the time you consume fluid, you will already feel the pinch of dehydration.

 

While water is the best option you have to stay hydrated, you can rely on other Fluids even. However, before consuming the same, let your fitness coach and dietitian know about it so that they can guide you with the quantity you should intake of the same.
