Workouts can be extremely hard sometimes. It requires you to be very consistent and dedicated. So, we understand how annoying and frustrating it can be when your workouts are not yielding results. It makes you feel inadequate and sometimes messes with your self-esteem. We totally understand how you feel but how long are you going to sulk? It’s time to switch up from doing workouts just as a trend to having an effective workout plan.
Here are some things you can do
Get the Right Food Plan
We cannot over-emphasize the importance of eating right. Your diet is king! So, it doesn’t matter if you spend the whole day at the gym if you end up on a lollipop and chocolate diet. You need to fix up your diet and watch how your body changes.
Have an Action-Based Routine
This is a real issue that many individuals face. They go to the gym every day just to chat with fellow gym members, hang out with the instructors and show off their new gym-wear. They spend 15 minutes on a lazy workout routine and 45 minutes using their phones. There is no way your workout routine will yield results if you do this.
Do the Right Exercises
You must ensure you are doing the right exercises to attain your fitness goals. Repeating the same exercise routines will lead to a plateau in workout performance and results. You should get a fitness trainer to help you curate a viable workout routine to attain your goals.
Set Realistic Goals
We often feel like our workout routines are not yielding results because we set ridiculous goals. e.g. you want a more toned butt, and you start squatting 30 times daily. Then, you expect to see results by the fourth day. OR you set 100 push-ups for yourself daily. Alas, you can only do 5. That’s an unrealistic goal. You need to set viable and realistic goals so you don’t end up being disappointed in yourself.
Monitor your Progress
It is important to keep tabs on your progress so you know where you were, where you are now and where you are headed. In addition to that, learn to celebrate your small fitness wins. Did you go to the gym consistently for one week? Be excited, celebrate that! You worked out longer today and increased your reps? Be excited and celebrate that! Celebrate every win and monitor your progress.
In addition, you need to be consistent with following each one of these tips and even going to the gym – or maintaining your at-home routine. It shows you are dedicated and committed to it. If possible, get an accountability partner who can help you stay on track.
Remember to look through these points if your workout routine is having unseen impacts on your body and thank us later.
