Am I guessing or how accurate would I be if I were to assume that many of you are the type who takes awhile to get going in the morning You just don't have the spring out of bed ready to work out, greet the day energy, but when you do start moving you feel great and have energy to spare for the rest of the day.
That's because aerobic exercise gets your heart pumping and your lungs working, which strengthens them and helps them get better-oxygenated blood out to your cells. And the more oxygen you provide to your cells, the more energy, immunity, and endurance you'll build up — all of which lead to a sexy, healthy body!
Here's how to pump up your exercise routine.
For those of you just getting geared up in your new lifestyle the best is to aim for at least 90 minutes of cardio exercise per week. You should be engaging in moderate aerobic exercise for at least 30 minutes, at least three times per week — though the more you can do, the better. Ninety minutes per week is the minimum you need to keep your heart healthy and to speed up your metabolism so you can drop that weight.
It's ore or less what I began with and look at me now I'm walking 3 hours a day; 8-10 miles six days a week!
Mix it up. For some of you you may need to mix it up because in doing the same thing every day gets boring after a while. Choose new walking routes, add an aerobics class sign up for a gym membership and actually use it!, or go for a swim instead of a trip on the StairMaster.
Keep challenging yourself. After a few weeks of the same routine, your body will plateau at the new level of fitness — if you want to progress even further, you’ll need to push yourself. That may mean increasing the speed at which you exercise, the amount of time you spend working out, or the challenge of the routine. So, if you’re a walker, you’ll need to pick up the pace, walk longer, or look for a hillier route. This will ensure that you continue to build the strength of your heart and your lungs.
And in walking I have found that about every 20 minutes or so my adrenalin kicks it up a notch and I just naturally want to pick up my pace!
THE EMPOWERED LIFE EXPECT IT . BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's keeps us going, when everyone else expects us to quit.
