It’s a big step becoming committed to a gym, one that can be extremely rewarding for your overall well-being. Although it’s great that you got there, you need to make sure you’re taking the right steps towards actually seeing the best results.
Here are the 3 things you will need to know and master to get in the best shape ever;
1. You Don’t Have Your Own Water Bottle
Water is necessary for proper and optimal functioning, and while you’re at a place that you’re secreting the most amount, you need to stay extra hydrated. Water fountains will leave you more susceptible to disregarding your water intake, leaving you technically taking 3 sips throughout a grueling workout. Are you possibly ending your session earlier than needed because you can’t take anymore? Try drinking more water. Bring your own bottle and refill it up at least twice throughout an hours session. We recommend to try this one.
Whether jogging on the treadmill or doing squats with a barbell, breath control is key to the best success. Learning correct breathing techniques will allow the workout to become much more smoother and longer. When you are contracting your breathing muscles, it helps to take the weight and increase stability during weight lifting. During aerobics, a constant diaphragm-based breath (from the belly not your chest) is key.
This is important if you want to avoid pulling out your back or damaging something. Correct posture, form and targeted muscle contraction can make or break your gym session. Anything your looking to try, whether its jumping rope or deep-lunges, you need to take the time to either work with a personal trainer who can help you personally, or you can take out your smartphone and search for the correct techniques on your favorite exercises.
Now, you could be doing a lot of other things wrong at the gym, but these are the 3 you will need to deeply consider to finally get the results you’ve been desperate to see.
