However, sometimes people are not experiencing the weight loss they expect from exercising regularly. What could be we be doing wrong? This is a common question when we are not seeing results.
Here are some tips to help you accomplish your fitness and weight loss goals:
1. Workout Longer
You are working out on a consistent basis for 60 minutes just like many home fitness experts advise, but you are not seeing any results. The solution may be that you need to workout a little bit longer. People have different metabolism’ before weight loss kicks in. You may have to push yourself longer before you start losing weight.
Most fitness experts say you need to reach 75% of your maximum heart rate before you can expect to burn calories. How to figure out your maximum heart rate. The general rule is subtract your age from 220 to find your maximum heart rate. So if you are 40 years old, you want to subtract 40 from to 220 to get 180. Now multiple 180 by 75% and you will get 135 as your target heart rate to burn calories. If you have not worked out at this pace you want to condition yourself and consult your doctor to see if you can handle the increased heart rate.
Safety comes before starting a new strenuous workout.
2. Drink More Water
Many people forget the importance of drinking water during the day and while they workout. Hydrating yourself during your home fitness routine will help in working out longer. Drinking water will helps keep stomach full and not triggering to your brain you are hungry. Another tip is to eat a light snack before you workout helps the craving for food during and after your workout.
Do not let this mistake hamper your weight loss goal. Drinking water has many health benefits other than just staying hydrated. Make sure drinking water before and during your workout becomes a habit.
3. Chart What You are Eating
