Do you struggle hard during training, but your success is still limited? That will change very quickly with our 8 fitness hacks.
This post gives you practical training tips to make your training sessions more effective and enjoyable. This way you can reach your goals more easily and quickly.
Quality before quantity
Before you start increasing the intensity of your workout, correct movement is crucial. It is best to have a professional trainer accompany you. He can watch your posture and correct your mistakes.
If you don’t have a trainer, you can simply watch videos on YouTube with the correct exercise and try to imitate them.
But be careful: especially as a beginner, it can quickly happen that you do not yet have the optimal body awareness. So grab your smartphone and film yourself while exercising. Control your posture with the one in the YouTube video.
Make sure you have enough protein
Without protein, your muscles cannot grow. If you train properly and give your body enough rest and still see no results, it may be because you are giving your muscles too little protein.
Our tip: With high-quality whey protein you supply your body with 24g of protein per serving.
Treat yourself with some relaxation
We just mentioned it. Recovery is an important part of your training success. Your muscles do not grow during training, even if it looks that way because of the stronger blood flow, also known as a pump. Instead, they’ll grow in the 24 to 48 hours after your workout, if you give them time to recover.
Stick to it all the time
In order for you to have the best possible success in training, you have to train regularly. If you only train once a week, the recovery phase is too long for your body and the training effect will already wear off again.
If you think it’s too much of a hassle, we can reassure you. 30 minutes of training 3 times a week is enough to achieve noticeable and visible results if you stick with it. The results will be even greater than if you only trained 3 hours once a week.
Increase difficulty regularly
If you always do the same exercises, with the same weight, your strength will always remain the same. Therefore, make sure to increase yourself every now and then. Increase the number of reps first, then increase the weight.
Every now and then go to your limits
You may have read many times that you shouldn’t exhaust yourself completely while exercising. Every now and then you should do it. With very intensive forms of training such as HIIT or Tabata, you can quickly push your body to its limits and thus set new stimuli.
Find your routine
No matter what others recommend you, in the end you have to find out for yourself what works for you. Try out whether you prefer to train in the morning before work, during your lunch break, immediately after or later in the evening.
Keep that good feeling
So that the training is no longer just exhausting for you, but you also associate positive feelings with it, memorize the feeling after the training. How do you feel now? Exhausted but proud? Exhausted but happy? Do the mirror check and look at yourself. Has your body changed as a result of the workout? Do you stand straighter and look tighter? Make note of all of these positive effects.
