Do we need to exercise every day?

16_workout

If you hate doing exercise you may be waiting for a no to be the answer and the truth is you don´t need to go to the gym every day. There are two cases in which I recommend going to the gym every day, if you are one of this cases then you may consider scheduling one hour a day to workout.

First if you are beginning your fitness journey and you´re just starting training, the reason why is because to sustain our results and stay lean almost effortless we need to develop the habits necessary and exercising is one of those habits we need to develop. To develop a new habit we need to do the activity we want to develop as a habit over and over and over again, habits are develop through repetition and getting up to exercise is one of the most difficult so we need consistency, if we schedule one hour of our day and we get up and do some exercise every single day whether we feel like doing it or not, don´t think about it just get up and do it, it´ll be easier and faster to make this habit stick.

Second if we want to get results as fast as possible, the more consistent we are, the more effort and hard work we put to our goal the faster we´ll achieve it so if we want to achieve our goal as fast as possible we need to do exercise every day, at least 6 days a week, if we are patient and we don´t mind going slower we can exercise 4 days a week.

The reason why most people hate exercise is the pain and struggle and that most of the time they hate the workouts and routines add to this that  it takes time to see results and those results are not what they were expecting, as they keep losing weight they see that they need to eat less and less and do a lot of exercise to maintain which gets to a point where it´s almost impossible to sustain it.

If the workouts and routines are based on some activities or exercise that we enjoy doing or are fun it´ll be easier for us to do them and the results we get are also important to motivate us and continue with the program.

My goal is to make fitness part of your life and making the training part more enjoyable and fun giving you the best results possible, that you love the way you feel and love the way you look, this is why the programs are different from most fitness programs.

If we exercise everyday we develop the habit faster and get results faster, our progress in the workouts will also be faster. We´ll be doing 3 to 4 days of resistance training to maintain and build muscle and the 3 or 4 days lefts we´ll be doing cardio to help burn fat.

Since we´re working on developing the habit of working out daily there´ll be days when we don´t feel like doing it, get up and do it anyway by not listening to the negative thoughts on our mind and all the reasons why we don´t need to do it today and just shutting up all of them and doing our workout we tell our mind that we are stronger, we are conditioning our mind and body to do what we need to do when we need to do it.

Even when the workouts are hard they are more enjoyable, on resistance training we want to get stronger, getting stronger means more muscle and on our cardio workouts we´re burning some calories to lose fat, they´re simple and effective. We´ll be performing 3 to 4 exercises for each muscle and we do some cardio that we love.

We´re keeping things simple sticking with the basics and taking out all the complicated things that don´t give us much results. The simplicity and effectiveness of the workouts will make it easier for us to stick to the program and to develop the habit o daily exercise.

Exercising everyday has so many benefits for our health which combined with the other 4 principles help us live a more healthier life and achieve so many things, it´s not only about looking good, the goal is to live the life you want to live.

It would mean so much to me if you share this post with your friends and family and if you follow me on Twitter and Facebook, together we can help millions live a better life.
