In today’s economy, we’ve all had to cut things from our budget. One of the sacrifices that most people make is their monthly gym membership. Well, just because you sacrificed your membership doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your daily routine and your ab work out.
If you know anything about my training philosophy, you’ll know that I don’t teach people to train the abs directly to lose belly fat. I recommend a more total body approach that focuses on using compound movements and building a positive metabolic response using unique workout methods.
You might want to set smaller goals. An hour is a long time to work out. You might want to try for 10 minutes. That isn’t too long and you can generally find 10 minutes in your day. It is really better than doing nothing at all.
There are three ways to exercise to get in to shape. They are cardio, aerobics and weight lifting. You need a workout routine that incorporates weight lifting to see great results. I’m not saying you won’t see results with the other methods. I feel to transform your body and see instant results you need to lift weights. You can still do cardio or aerobics but also add weight lifting in to your workout routine. Now you don’t have to lift heavy but workout consistently with weights to see progress.
The point of listing all these guys is that you should be proactive and find a practitioner in your area that performs soft-tissue work. Don’t wait until injury happens to visit one. Go as often as you can afford – once or twice a month should be doable for most people (many health-care plans will cover treatment as well – max out your limit if you can.) Not only will it improve your recovery and performance, but it will definitely reduce the likelihood of injury.
If you schedule your workouts like this, you will work these certain muscle groups hard one day a week, then give them ample time to recover. Recovery time is a critical part of any good Working out together schedule for men. Muscles need plenty of time to build back the torn tissue that occurs during any workout.
Also, raid the kitchen for any high fat, high sugar foods. These must go if you want to eliminate all temptation. Well, you could always find a lower calorie version, if you can’t live without some of them.
The moral of the story is this. The gym is great, and quite frankly, it’s one of the best places to have a social experience while you exercise. But, if you want to lose weight, build muscle, or just maintain your current physical health without going to the gym, YOU CAN.
