Let’s get even more serious about losing pounds and inches with different movements for fat burning.
Your weight loss plan has 3 components
- Eating Right
- Moving for 20 minutes or 2,000 steps
- Avoiding the wrong foods
Your Personal Trainer Food meal plan is the perfect way to make sure you eat right and keep meal prep simple.
AMP UP Your Activities!
Movement is your tool to burn fat, tighten muscles and strengthen your heart.
Weight loss is 90% diet and 10% movement, but that 10% will help you accelerate your weight loss, tone muscles, and strengthen your heart. Your steadfast commitment to burning fat will get you to the weight and clothing size you’re working toward.
If you feel yourself slowing down or getting bored with your walking routine, this list of 7 Outdoor Alternatives will help you get rolling again.
7 Outdoor Activities
There are two ways you can use yard work to get your daily movement.
Light Gardening, like pulling weeds, planting flowers, mowing the lawn, or heavy yard work like chopping wood, removing or planting small trees, and placing paving stones. Both are a great way to beautify your home and create great curb appeal. You could win that beautiful yard award in your neighborhood and you’ll look good too!
Start your lawn services later this year and let your yard work be your activity. You’ll save money on a shorter lawn service season, beautify your home’s exterior, and look your best ever!
Not getting enough time to clear your head and release stress from your mind and muscles? Take a hike! Hiking puts you into the fresh air and gives your lungs a boost. Experience beauty on a nature trail to melt your stress away. It’s a great muscle builder for your legs and glutes. Visit your local parks and find the trails in your area to take a hike.
It’s one of the best combo activities you can do. Biking will strengthen your heart and pedaling will tighten those glutes and thighs. Biking is a fun way for you, a friend, or a few friends to enjoy building muscle together.
- Wall Climbing
Climbing has become a very popular activity, even on cruise ships. Wall and rock climbing require your focus for balance. You’ll engage your core muscles and your arms and legs. All muscle groups get a good workout when you’re climbing. Make sure you use tether ropes, a helmet, and good shoes to ensure your safety.
Swimming is a low-impact workout for everyone. Swimming is used as healing therapy and strength building when joints are damaged or constrained by offering resistance without impact. Water provides a gentle resistance that requires you to push the water to propel yourself forward using your arms, legs, and breathing techniques that build lung capability. Swimming in the pool, the ocean, or the lake provides great exercise and clean fun.
- Paddle Boarding
Stand-up paddle boarding is a great core workout. Your core is engaged the entire time which works your abs and your back. Paddling works your pectorals and biceps while your legs and glutes hold your body upright. It’s a full-body workout that results in a slimmer waistline, thinner thighs, and a tighter tush.
Wow! Rollerblading really gets your body moving. It engages everything. Abs, arms, balance, hips, heart rate, and legs all get stronger from rollerblading. It’s an exhilarating activity that engages your mind, body and builds endorphins for a positive outlook. Need an emotional uplift? Take a spin on a paved trail to feel energized.
Let’s Not Forget Hydration
Hydration is a vital part of your weight loss plan. Make sure you hydrate while performing each of these activities. Your body needs to flush out the toxins released from your muscles and replenish your muscles to keep your body functioning at its peak.
When your body is really moving, it releases glycogen which lowers your stored sodium levels. Sodium is good for you on a low-carb diet and replenishing your sodium levels is encouraged to help you stay hydrated. Clear liquids are best but there are other hydration options. If you’re in the mood for something besides water, check out our Personal Trainer Guidelines for suggestions. Some of the most popular beverages are tea, broth, and zero sugar sports drinks.
When you’re feeling good and energized, remain vigilant to avoid the desire to snack on the wrong foods. It is as vital to avoid eating the wrong foods, as it is to eat the right foods.
Congratulations on keeping your commitments throughout the winter. As spring has sprung, you can enjoy a variety of different activities that invigorate, produce endorphins, and burn fat. Personal Trainer Food meal plans will keep you on track to lose those stubborn pounds.
