One of the most vital aspects to staying slim and toned is to work out. There's no other substitute for exercise, and without it your body is slowly wearing down! That being said, knowing how to exercise the right way is just s important to get the full benefit of your workout!
Believe it or not, but there's actually a proper way to work out. Most people believe that there is no wrong way of working out, but there are definitely way you can not only slow down your weight loss, but injure yourself as well!
There's one major mistake that just about everyone, from beginners to the fitness-obsessed, make all the time. It's not only slowing your weight loss, but putting you on a path to injury and danger!
You should always rest between exercises! Studies have actually shown that longe rest periods (3-4 minutes) allow for more strength gains in your body in comparison to extremely short rest periods (30-40 seconds). Not resting at all can actually slow down muscle toning, and can lead to a serious injury for not allowing your body to have a break!
So, the next time you hit the gym, don't stress your body out by going immediately from one exercise to the next. Try resting about 3-4 minutes between each exercise (resting any longer can lead your body to cool down too much, which can also result in injury). Sit down, or if you're restless, try doing some slow stretches to allow your body to relax while still getting some movement in. Either way, give your body some time to relax!
