1.) On Treadmills there is a button to increase “Incline”. DO IT! If you are on an incline you will actually burn more calories.
2.) Vary your speeds. For a quarter of a mile do fast then slow it up, then increase, then slow down. You will feel like your doing different things.
3.) You are not Arnold Schwarzenegger. It’s okay on the machines not to be able to lift 50lbs or so. Do not strain yourself.
4.) 15 reps, 3 times is more than enough on a machine without overdoing it.
5.) Music. You need it. Enough said.
6.) If your are at a weight machine & the weights clash down with a loud noise after a rep, the weight is too heavy for you.
7.) For a girl: Find a cute guy focal point. For a guy: Find a cute girl focal point. Watch them work-out & it’ll make the time go by real fast cuz you’ll be daydreaming.
8.) It’s okay to only go for 30 minutes. The notion you have to spend hours at the gym is really false. You’re not a body-builder so anytime spent at the gym is worth it.
9.) Stretching after you work-out let’s your muscles relax so you don’t get cramps.
10.) Just because you’re going to the gym doesn’t mean you can then eat more of bad foods. It should be a combo effort.
Just thought I’d share those few things with you while I had a break at work. I’m not going to the gym today because I think you do need time of rest. Tomorrow I’ll go back. Okay…just breathe…
Do you have any tips at the gym &/or eating to help me out sticking to my weekly goal?
