You do not have to fear the word fitness. Even if you have had less-than-favorable experiences in the past, it is time to put that behind you. Let go of hurtful feelings and be proud of having a healthy body. Read on to learn exactly how to do this.
Make sure that your weight lifting routine lasts no longer than one hour. Not only that, but muscle wasting starts at around an hour during this type of exercise. Keep your weight training under an hour.
Strength training times depend on your goals. To get bigger, you want to limit the amount of strength training exercises you complete on a regular basis. If you work on your strength more frequently, you will get leaner but well-defined muscles.
For a general workout that will benefit multiple muscle groups, concentrate on completing a smaller number of repetitions at a higher weight. Choose the muscle group you want to work. Use an easy to lift warm-up weight for the first set. Try doing around 15 or so reps for the warm up. The second set should be done with a weight with which you can complete only 6-8 repetitions. Add five more pounds to the weight and repeat the third set.
When lifting weights, you will help muscle mass if you do a lot of reps with a light weight; that is in contrast to fewer reps with high weight. Muscle mass involves length of endurance without the loss of strength rather that how much you can lift. This is the preferred training for many weight lifters.
If these tips remain with you and help to change your perceptions on fitness, you are ready to go. By doing this you have not only extended your lifespan but will also be able to enjoy the time you do have even better.
