Are There Any Limits To Work-Outs You Do?

Submitted by on May 12, 2009 – 12:22 amNo Comment

As per the world health survey there are more number of obese people than half of our population and the amount of carbon gases released by heavy individuals contributes to global warming, we can do our bit to stop the global melting down by reducing our weight so that it doesn’t release more than wanted amount of green house gases from the body. As per the common survey, it stated that an individual should be working out 1 hour a day to stay in proper shape and the intensity should be moderate to vigorous but recently as per the US department of health and human services it stated that if you are working out 5 days a week 2 hours and 30 minutes workout a week is more than sufficient. The moderate intensity workouts are good for health as they are easy going and you get enough exercise for all your body muscles.

Some people are nearly confused as to what exactly they should do or might be doing with their workout plans? As per the world health reports, you should be working out 1 hour every day 5 days a week that will include your muscle weight training and cardio workouts, you might well be wondering what government is suggesting is for real, sometimes they say 5 days a week, 1 hour and now just 2 and half hours a week, is that sufficient for your body routine, the workout may help you as long as you do vigorous workout just walking at your comfort speed on treadmill is not going to help instead you should try ways that will help reduce the weight faster and better.

The lesser the better, as they say but that stands true as far as your gym workouts are concerned, straining your body too much into doing workouts will not help and as a result you might injure yourself deeply. There have been lots of discussions and hot fights on what is better for a body whether rigorous workouts or slow and steady workout, some people love doing faster and some people are so dumb stuck that you have to go and inspire them every time for doing the workouts. In my entire life and my experiences with my clients I have come upon this result that rigorous heavy workout in shorter bouts helps reducing the fat faster in the body and this impact more than the normal longer, lower intensity workouts.

The reason why higher intensity workouts are better than normal intensity ones is that they give better results and gives you good recovery, now you might well wonder what is it with the recovery thing, to explain it simple it’s that the work out brings in lots of strain to your muscle and they need time to recover back to its normal form and give you a more leaner and paced body structure. As you do minimal workout the intensity is low and so you will loose lesser calories and as a result you won’t get to see much of a difference in your body size. Recovery is the main thing which will require when you do hard core exercises. Some individuals might not be as comfortable as you are doing hard core high intensity workout but you can anyway start with small bouts of exercises regimen which will led you increase your intensity steadily, but you don’t need to be under this pretext that if you are doing low intensity there would be no difference so that might as well is as good as no workouts at all and you stop your workout, this is wrong, you need to do your workouts regularly to attain a stage where you will automatically start doing high intensity workouts and your resistance would increase. At least doing something is any time better than not doing anything at all. You need to steadily increase your workouts that will help your body get adjusted to the workouts and slowly it will start affecting as well.

When we talk about good effects of high intensity workouts the low intensity workouts has its own importance and advantages, low intensity exercise will help in long run as your body has steadily come to the stage that it is now so even if you have missed out on your exercises it is not going to make a very big difference it will take time to make a difference there by letting you in to a advantage that you will still retain the body you have got through exercising. The advantage in shorter durations lets you remain consistent with your workouts, we all know that life is so busy and everybody is so absorbed in their own sweet world may whatever be your commitments you still need to find a way where in you can at least pull out half an hour or 45 minutes for your daily workouts routine. One more thing is that you need to be taking proper nutrition while on exercise schedules because that will help you get the best results.

Well, people might work out for long years say around 1 year or so but how will we know exactly that you were working out well enough to loose those extra pounds? The best part of doing your aerobics workout is that you can catch up the pulse rate of your body while doing the workout that will also tell you the amount of approximate calories that you have burnt and also has a heart rate monitor. The heart rate of one person might differ from other, so you cannot come upon a common point where you can say all of them in the batch have lost so and so calories, now lets have one simple test while working out, that is commonly called as the talk test, while doing your aerobics activity if you are able to talk out loud than you are more likely that you have not been doing a very hard workout, if you are taking frequent resting breaks in your aerobic schedule that might well mean that your intensity is moderate and that if you are not able to talk at all then this is the time you should stop working out as you are doing high intensity and needs to slow down. The main goal what needs to be achieved here is that you should be able to have easy conversation while working out, monitor all your exercise moves while working out.

So the best advice I had like to give to my clients and readers is that keep your workout regimen simply and try to stay consistent through out your workouts and also the entire tenure of workouts. You can perform aerobic exercise half an hour per day, up to 5 days a week but don’t over exert if you are not able to proceed ahead after starting out. As you start feeling comfortable with one workout schedule there is time to get a change because your body is now already used to the said workout and will not make any major difference so bring a change like your intensity levels, etc. strength training is good for muscles in long run so try to do strength training exercises at least twice a week.
