The Concise Oxford Dictionary says exercise to be:
Activity requiring physical effort, done especially as training or to sustain or improve health.
With this definition we see that exercise can be many things, things we enjoy and things we have never even related to improving our health.
Take the time out of your day to train your body and your mind will follow. Exercise releases brain chemicals that bring about a good mood. With that good mood, you need to attack every difficult situation you experience and day-by-day (God willing) things will change for the better. It’s said “you need to spend money to make money” and in terms of your fitness, this holds true. You need to invest in your health and fitness if you want to maintain a healthy and fit body.
24 hrs to Suit your Lifestyle
Budget gyms often offer around the clock access which is great for self-conscious men with determination to reach their health and fitness goals. Maybe you work and couldn’t find the time to workout before, 24hr gyms are ideal for you.
Why do you eat what you eat? Is it because you’ve been raised by parents eating a specific food, do you eat as you do because it’s socially acceptable, is it because your money stretches that bit further than most and you have a taste for the takeaway food daily?
So the plan is to hit the gym as soon as it opens on the 12th April (God willing). Its the same plan many men have but you’re different, you have a strategy or you will after reading this post to the end.
When it comes to exercise you don’t need much to get going except a go-getting attitude and the desire to see the job through. I’m going to run down a few of the things you can do that won’t cost you much and will benefit you even more in your weight-loss journey.
Carbohydrates such as Oats, Brown Rice, Brown Pasta and Sweet Potato are great sources of energy to fuel your day and exercise sessions. These carbs also hold fibre which helps normal bowel movement, helps to control blood sugar levels and lowers Cholesterol. It is also advisable to eat vegetables and fruit throughout the day due to their vitamin and mineral content.
One of the courses I was really looking forward to this year was the Kettlebell Trainer course which has been called off due to the Nationwide Lockdown, for now anyway. Gyms and ‘non-essential’ businesses have been closed for months and so our eating habits and levels of physical activity have been taking beatings from all angles. In preparation for the Kettlebell Trainer course I’ve been training at home with my own Kettlebells and I’d really like to share with you my thoughts and reasons why you should train with these weights.
Most men care about their appearance which is important, especially our inner appearance when it comes to the state of the heart but I want you to think more about your aesthetic appearance for a moment. Home gym training is the order of the day for many of us in the UK as we battle through Lockdown. In this article, we will touch on why working out using your own programme is the way to go.
