Do we need to exercise every day?

06 How to manage stress

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 everyday. There are two cases in which I recommend going to the gym everyday, 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 your results and stay lean almost effortless you need to develop the habits necessary and exercising is one of those habits you need to develop. To develop a new habit you need to do that activity you 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 you need consistency, if you schedule one hour of your day and you get up and do some exercise every single day whether you 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 you want to get results as fast as possible, the more consistent you are, the more effort and hard work you put to your goal the faster you´ll achieve it so if you want to achieve your goal as fast as possible you need to do exercise everyday, at least 6 days a week, if you are patient and you don´t mind going slower you 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 your workouts and routines are based on some activities or exercise that you enjoy doing or are fun it´ll be easier for you to do them and the results you get are also important to motivate you and continue with your program.

My goal is that you make fitness part 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 my programs are different from most fitness programs.

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

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

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

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

Exercising everyday has so many benefits for your health which combined with the other 4 principles help you 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.
