Challenge yourself to get the best toning results. When it comes to weight loss, studies have shown that the intensity of a workout effects weight loss more than the workout duration. Remember that your body adapts quickly to the same routine, so mix up different forms of weight training with cardio and high-intensity interval training. Keep in mind this one caveat, not every lifting session should be to your maximum potential.
Know your calorie burn…Are you over eating it? You might be. Oddly enough, the calorie count from even the fanciest watches is often overestimated. So if your goal is to lose weight, keep yourself at a calorie deficit. By eating healthy or cleaner, being conscience that liquid calories count, and pre-portioning your food, you most likely will not overeating your daily allowed calorie count. Remember this: People on the go often consume more calories, so take time and sit down as you eat your meals and snacks.
Mix It Up. If a typical workout for you includes running, cycling, or Zumba, know your body is getting very good at this type of cardio. That’s why you must mix up your workout. Add strength training and muscle toning into your workout. Even consider yoga to improve flexibility.
