At the start of January every year, many people dream of new year health, they emerge from the blocks enthusiastic about undoing the apparent ‘bad work’ they partook in over the festive time (and at times the last year in general)… that is until around this time of the year, even as soon as towards the end of January a great number of individuals will quit.
Some after several months, or weeks and sometimes even days so new year health fades away. Post-Xmas and New Year, people often go on a meals and drinking frenzy’s and will more than likely be carrying a little extra load. This extra load will often than not be basic inflammation and so panicking about the food baby around your midsection shouldn’t freak you out.
Everyone sets off for the gym after a large hiatus. The age-old method of exercising 5-6 times a week for 2 times a day is definitely a recipe for disaster, and starving yourself to remove the holiday excess weight increases your chances of failure hence why you should always seek professional advice
After a short period of time, various people may have dropped some scale weight, but abruptly they strike a wall and nothing at all change after months. You see without regular inspiration, direct information, help and support I find my Online Personal Training clients are more likely to struggle.
They lose motivation with their new year health crusade after they have got sweated and fatigued for what seems nothing at all, and once again permit their local gym membership, to sail off into the doldrums, where it will sit in wait around till the following January.
Instead, I try to show my Personal Training clients to ” set yourself a goal for at least 6 months, but preferably concentrate on the entire year ahead. ” The old saying Rome wasn’t built in a day, and your goal should be to build something such as building a physique fuelled by appropriate nutrition instead of burning it to the ground ” (ie. the concentrate on burning calories no matter the cost).
Below are five points to ponder and set you back on the right track for new year health:
1- Discuss your aim with your trainer to produce a reliable plan
2 – Aim to lift weights 3-4 times a week, do it regularly for weeks, and note your progress
3- Ensure plenty of time for sleep and recovery
4- Eat! Starving yourself won’t get you wherever. Get enough protein, and don’t be scared of carbs and body fat.
5 – If you battle to watch your high fat calories, track your meal- this can help establish you for success.
6- Still benefit from the odd beer, wines or your meal of choice- it isn’t meant to be considered a miserable process!
