Workout Motivation

Each and every year probably hundreds if not thousands of people set the idea out that they are going to begin to workout more and lead a healthier lifestyle. Although this idea  is wonderful, it’s actually very hard to keep up. Speaking from experience, I found that jumping straight into workouts every single day isn’t effective, especially if one does little to no exercise at all. I’ve come to the realization that the best way to lead a healthier lifestyle and keep exercises going is to start off with low impact workouts and do them only a couple of times a week; gradually, increasing the workouts and the frequency will allow for more motivation. Below are some workouts you may want to consider if you are just entering this exercise lifestyle.

Workout Number 1: Tone those legs!

Workout Number 2: Tone those abs!

Please note, I am in no way shape or form a doctor or a fitness expert, but this is how I personally got into working out more often, slowly but surely getting to more advanced workouts. You may try these at home, maybe start off by doing one of them once a week, then twice a week and slowly build until you are more comfortable and motivated to continue doing more exercises. You’ll notice that if you click on the names of the exercise, such as high knees, it will send you to a link on how to do the exercise. You may also notice that in some exercises the person performing may have a weight, you do not need a weight by any means, start off with your own body weight and slowly build up. I hope you try these exercises at home, if you do, please do let me know what you think!

Tips:

  • Start slowly, do one or two workouts a week and slowly build up
  • Start off with your own body weight then slowly start adding more weights
  • Remember to always stretch before and after a workout
  • Stay hydrated
  • Don’t get discouraged if you don’t see results right away
  • Don’t lose focus, not matter how hard the journey may get
  • Have fun with it
  • Don’t forget to smile
