Simple Tips To Help You Understand Fitness

Simple Tips To Help You Understand Fitness

Fitness isn’t an unattainable goal. You shouldn’t think of it as something you’ll eventually get around to. You should begin now, since time is never on your side. The sooner you start the healthier you’ll be the rest of your life. All you need to do is make some small changes in your lifestyle. My blog below will show you how.

When thinking about fitness, make a mental picture of what you want to accomplish. In other words, think about your goal. You will stop focusing on how hard it is and push yourself harder to achieve the goal. Goal setting can help keep you on track with your fitness program.

It is important to have proper form when walking in order to reduce the chance of injury. Stand upright and draw your shoulders back and down. Let each elbow drop to a right angle. Make sure your arms move in an opposite pattern to your foot movements. Allow your foot to land on the heel, roll to the toe, and spring forward to the next step.

During your workouts, remember to exhale when you finish a repetition; don’t hold your breath. You can preserve your energy this way, since you get to inhale more air when you inhale again.

Maintain a fitness log detailing your fitness activities for the day. Write down your regular workouts and all other exercise you did during the day. Use a pedometer to track how many steps you take each day and include that in your record, also. Keeping track of how far you’ve come in your fitness routine can keep you motivated.

Get used to the idea by getting up a few minutes earlier than normal and use that time to do light exercises, like jumping rope or walking. This helps start your morning off on the right foot and builds healthy habits.

Try to work out on the weekends as much as you can to increase your chances for success. Weekends should include some relaxation, but also some exercise. You need to keep your mind on your fitness goals 24/7. Don’t hurt all of your efforts by splurging on the weekends, you will never reach your fitness goals if you do this.

Work on your volleyball skills. The key to improving these skills lies in an entirely different sport: foosball. In order to win at foosball, a player needs to have skills that include sharp hand-eye coordination

Test out a bench before completing any real workouts on it. Check that the padding is sufficient by pressing your finger into the cushion. If you feel the wooden or metal base beneath, look for another bench.

Increase your workouts to a higher intensity to help accelerate weight loss. More exercising in a short period of time helps weight loss. Shortening the breaks between exercise intervals or removing them entirely will result in “denser” exercises. This is a great way to increase how much weight you’re losing.

Box squats are a fantastic exercise to consider for strong quadriceps. Box squats help you increase your quad size exponentially. You just need to put a box in position behind yourself. Then simply perform a normal squat but stop and hold it when you’re positioned right over the box.

This blog is your ticket to a fitter, more beautiful you. Incorporating new fitness ideas, even if you have an established workout routine, can improve your results. You’ll find that it’s a journey to becoming a more fit person.

My accident happened on February 5th, 2012 after my bartending shift at the Blue Martini in Orlando, FL late one night. I was driving on my way to a friend’s house in Tampa, FL who I was temporarily staying with at the time. I was told that my car veered off the interstate and flipped five times, my body was found 50 feet from it. I’ve tried very hard to discover how my body made it that distance from the car, and who found me, but I still don’t know. The accident report didn’t say much. I received a phone call from a sergeant eventually who told me I was airlifted to Orlando Regional Medical Center unconscious when my trach and feeding tube were implanted, but they didn’t expect me to make it. I was in a coma for five to six weeks after my car accident. I woke up with a traumatic brain injury, liver laceration, lung confusion, subluxation to my neck, amnesia, epilepsy, a fractured lumbar spine, and a fractured pelvis with pins implanted. The pins were removed a few months later. Talk about a painful surgery. Healing is an ongoing process, but for me there are some specific things that have helped along the way: Keeping track of everything to care for my daily hygiene. Listing these things with a dry erase marker on my bathroom mirror used to help. Recognizing what I’m not supposed to say. Deciding what TO SAY, what NOT TO SAY, and WHEN to say WHAT. Isn’t easy to do and I still haven’t mastered it. There are things I’m supposed to talk only to certain people about, and some things I should keep to myself. When I’m being upfront and honest with someone, I can’t assume whatever I’m saying or doing is right, just because in my head, being truthful is “the way I’m supposed to be”. Believe it or not, oddly enough, that isn’t always the case! Learning how to RECOGNIZE which is which is vital. Don’t believe what everyone says. Do your own research. Discover your own truth. Know who I can talk to with the confidence that I'll be given honest feedback from them. What prescriptions must I take daily, how many times a day, how many pills in each dosage, and how to stay on a schedule with my doctors so I don’t run out of my medications. How to keep myself on track. I try and find simple ways to include all things I need to do, my appointments, yoga classes, homework, social life, fitness, etc. Figuring out the most effective ways that can progressively help manage my pain. A therapist is a must have. Someone I can tell everything to and have it kept confidential. I must constantly fight hard to make each of my days better. That’s the way it is. Accept it, don’t give up, and keep going. YouTube and the Word synonym tool are necessities I can’t live without. Keep the alcohol to a MINIMUM. If any, but not drinking AT ALL is the best-case scenario-by a long shot. I’ve been working on how to stop talking out loud as much while being overwhelmingly passionate about things. For me, moving forward is about resilience. Why? I’ve learned that being resilient to words people say about, to, and against me have subconsciously built up an ulterior strength within me. This strength is like a shield that gives me the power to just keep going. To be resilient means to keep moving forward despite having the odds stacked against me. Just to keep it moving and continue giving my all every single day, gripping onto the hope it’ll all make perfect sense at some point. How the next day and the day after that aren’t going to feel the same. Resilience has aided me in finding somewhere I can fit in, and enjoy what I’m doing. Also, being resilient in my situation has created the ability for me to have a positive impact on others. I'm not depressed anymore. I’m quite happy with myself at this point. Now don’t get me wrong, I still have a long list of goals I’m going to achieve, or die trying. Haha, that’s the fight in me talking out loud. Resilience has abetted me in accepting the new Christy you could say. Vinyasa yoga has helped improve my pain and flexibility a lot. I’m sure my sanity too. I haven’t tried much meditation yet, but I plan to, although I tried a breathing exercise on Kevin’s Instagram last night and loved it! I want to get good at it. I don’t know why, but when I start feeling fatigued or when I just want to write my mind on paper, sitting by the ocean really helps calm me. I think I’m a bit hyperactive, but I’ve noticed when I wake up and go straight to the gym, get on the treadmill at 3.4 speed and just go for an hour. It really helps motivate me about my day and somehow makes it easier for me to fall asleep when I hop into bed. I also take part in Vinyasa yoga, instructed by Di, only 2 times a week hosted at Suncoast Fitness in St. Petersburg, FL. It has helped build my strength, improve my flexibility, and ease my thoughts to a noticeable degree. As I move forward in this journey and look to the future, I’m planning on one day starting a YouTube channel and raising money to develop an app for TBI survivors. Like a life coach in a sense, and hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to teach survivors how to use it, or make it very simple and self-explanatory. It would also be nice to make hospitals aware of the app one day so they'll be able to reference it and help others who have been affected by brain injury.
