Maintaining Your Workout Results

Maintaining Your Workout Results

Finishing a workout program is a wonderful achievement. Not many people can say that about themselves. Many people buy all these workout DVDs but after a couple of weeks they just quit because it’s too darn hard. I read that only about 10% of the people that start a workout program have the will power to see it through.

So you are one of those ten percent. First of all congratulations. The fact that you just did that is really impressive. But now you stand before another task, maintaining your hard worked results. So now people are asking you for a fast weight loss tip, but how do you keep your weight the same so in the future you won’t have to sweat again to lose belly fat. The best thing would be to keep doing the same workout over and over without increasing the weight or the number of reps. But that isn’t an option for everyone. One hour a day, for the rest of your life, that’s a lot of time.

Another option is to include a yoga day, one weight-lifting day and one cardio day per week. Yoga is really relaxing and you won’t feel like you are doing an actual workout. But yoga is great at maintaining muscle tone and joint flexibility. One weight-lifting day so you don’t lose strength. You don’t have to do an actual cardio workout. You can add some sport activity in your schedule, like running, hiking, biking, something you won’t consider a chore and you will enjoy doing.

I am doing a Yoga workout on Monday, pull-ups and push-ups on Thursday and on the weekends I go hiking and backpacking. This really seems to work for me, because I can still do 15 pull-ups and 50 push-ups without a problem, just like at the end of my last 3 month workout program.
