Fitness tips that fit into everyday routines work, plain and simple. The easier it is to slip it into the flow of the normal goings on of the day, the more likely you are to embrace and maintain it. Check out the tips below that simplify the path toward getting healthy and result in noticeable body benefits.
Purifying start to the day
A glass of water first thing in the morning kick starts the digestive process and works as a cleanser to flush out toxins that grow in the body during sleep. Simple, easy and just a quick walk to the kitchen away.
Five to six small meals a day
It sounds like a lot, especially if you skip breakfast and currently eat only two meals a day. But, if you break it down to breakfast, lunch, and dinner, plus two to three small snacks, the intimidation factor subsides. Eating every two to three hours prevents your body from going into starvation mode and storing the calories you put in it. Give it a shot, you’ll feel energized, refreshed — and you’ll ramp your metabolism up to boot!
High intensity interval training (HIIT)
Interval training challenges muscles and improves cardiovascular fitness through high-intensity (work) time and low-intensity (recovery) time. After a five minute warm-up, 20-30 minutes of intervals (each high-intensity interval should not exceed 120 seconds), and a cool-down, your body will be screaming at you, but keep it up and you’ll love the results. By simply moving quickly and intensely for short periods of time you’ll burn hundreds of calories — FAST! Give it a few weeks and you will be loving you new look.
