Hey Today I am going to share my Top Workout Tips and the answers to my most Frequently Asked Questions about the workouts…
How Many Workouts Should You Be Completing in A Week?
Beginners: Do the first 2 sets of each workout. (I have set 3 workouts this week)
Intermediate: Do the first 3 sets of each workout + 1-2 Active Days each week.
Advanced: Do all sets of each workout + 1-2 Active Days each week.
TIP: You don’t need to do the whole workout when you are getting started.
Just concentrate on the first 1 or 2 sets each day and build it up over time.
The most important action to take now is to find a time and a place where you can consistently work out to get your daily workout habit started.
By dedicating a set time every day for your daily workout:
1. You build a really important habit for your success: working out.
The stronger this habit becomes, the fitter, healthier, more energised and happier you will become, and of course your results will be amazing.
2. You keep your body in Response Mode for maximum results.
Can you split the Workouts into 2 Halves across the day?
It is best to do one workout per day so you can give it 100% and feel accomplished once it’s completed.
If you are struggling to do the whole workout: just start off with 2-3 sets of the workout for your first 28 days.
Otherwise tweak your schedule so you have time to do your complete workout all in one go.
When you take into account
- Getting changed before your workout
- Getting to where you are going to workout
- Setting up
- Stretching afterwards
- Getting changed after your workout
You will save time by doing your workout in one go.
Should You Eat Before or After a Workout?
Before a Workout
Some of my clients prefer to eat something small before they workout.
They find that it gives them more energy to push all the way through their workout.
Others find that eating something small before their workout doesn’t work for them as it makes them feel a little queasy.
Experiment a little and see what works the best for you.
Try one of the options below before your workout:
- a piece of fruit
- a small serving of oats
- a banana
- a piece of toast with peanut butter
- half a Miss Fitness Life Slimdown Bar
If you feel the intensity of your workout dropping though the session, then try eating something small before working out.
Experiment with a few things to see what helps you to give 100% in your workout.
After a full meal wait about 1 hour before working out.
After a Workout:
You should always eat within 30mins of finishing a workout.
After a workout, a Slimdown Smoothie is perfect to prevent muscle and energy wastage
Can You Do the Cardio in The Workouts all at Once?
No – to get the best benefit you should do the cardio as 5min cardio bursts, as set out in the workout outline.
Breaking up the 4 sets with the cardio bursts gives your body a rest from the strength work and allows fresh blood and oxygen to flow through your body.
This means faster recovery for your muscles and reduces any chance of overuse and strain.
I also know you can push a lot harder in your cardio bursts for 5 mins than you could for 20mins in one go.
Cardio bursts are far more effective for fast fatloss, and put much less stress on your body compared to one steady 20min session.
