I am going to Spain in just a week! I’m thrilled about both my upcoming trip and the beginning of summer. I can’t wait to start wearing short dresses, going on vacations, and visiting different beaches… For years, however, this would stress me out. I did not want to wear these things or travel unless I looked my best. Here’s why I’ve drafted a list of things you can do to improve your physical appearance and grow more confident.
- Priorities. When they first begin their fitness journey, many people rush in and try to do everything at once. They go to the gym and do all sorts of exercises, training their legs, their back, and their core in one day. This won’t help the achieve their goals. That’s why we must learn to prioritize. We need to determine what our biggest goal is and, once we’ve achieved it, we can move on to the next. We can, for instance, want to grow leaner. Or we can want to lose weight. The achievement of these targets would require us to do different sets of exercises and follow a different diet.
- Nutrition is key. Once we’ve set out goals, we need to decide on an appropriate eating plan—working out, by itself, will never be enough. As you may already know, you need to be in a caloric deficit in order to lose weight. The opposite holds true, too. If you want to gain muscle and have more energy, you need to consume more calories than you burn.
- Work smart, not hard. How often you exercise isn’t as important to your success as what exercises you do. This is especially true if you’re looking to change your body quickly. If that’s the case for you, don’t waste your time doing exercise that only focuses on growing a certain muscle—or a certain one of your body. Rather, do exercise that trains a few muscle groups simultaneously. of not allowing their bodies to rest. As personal trainers have pointed out, taking rest days is crucial in obtaining the dream body. Furthermore, rest days are also non-negotiable because the changes you’re making in your exercise and eating habits put your body under significant stress.
- Realistic goals. Although you may feel tempted to make great changes, stating small is the best thing you can do. Your goal isn’t to look like a swimsuit model but to become a better version of yourself.
