Spring into Shape
April 1, 2011 § Leave a comment
With Spring officially here, this is the time everyone likes to set fitness goals to be ready for Summer. I wanted to take a moment and share a few tips to make reaching your goals doable and possibly take a little bit of the guess work out of it. All of us know that diet and exercise are the key to maintaining a healthy weight and fabulous looking body, but what about those last few difficult pounds that never seem to want to vanish. Here are a few simple tips to apply to your workout routine and I assure you will see a difference.
1. You must increase the intensity of your workouts (if you can carry on a conversation with a friend, you are not working hard enough).
2. Go breathless-make sure you are working to 85% of your maximum (you will know when you reach this because you will be breathless).
3. Cut out booze, processed food and reduce sodium intake to 1500mg a day (if you can’t cut the alcohol, try and reduce it to one/two times a week and watch your intake).
4. Up your intake of water to 80oz (10 8oz classes a day).
These are simple but important tips. Apply what you like and I know you will see the results in no time! HELLO Skinny Jeans!
