Blog - Fast Fixes For Any Workout Program
As you go about your workout program, there are going to be times when you run into a few problems and have to make adjustments in the protocol you’re using.
Not only are fitness plateaus quite common unless you’re taking steps to prevent them, but as time passes by, there may be other issues that prove to give you trouble.
Learning how to recognise the problems and then make a few fast fixes to your workout program set-up can ensure that these never set you back as far as your progress is concerned.
Let’s take a quick peek at some solutions to how we can fix this.
Problem: You’re Short On Time
The first problem that you may run into is being very short on time. If this is the case, then the mission is simple: get in and out as fast as possible without sacrificing your results.
The best solution to this problem is high intensity interval training.
If your goal is to burn fat, intervals better be part of your program. Besides being a quick method to getting in a great workout, intervals are extremely effective for transforming your physique. By incorporating intense periods of work with short recovery segments, intervals allow you to keep the workout intensity high while still maintaining form. The magic of high intensity interval training (or HIIT for short) lies its ability to keep you burning fat even after you finish your fitness bootcamp session. In short, your body isn’t able to bring in enough oxygen during periods of hard work. Therefore, you accumulate a “debt” of oxygen that must be repaid post-workout in order to get back to normal. The result — your metabolism is revved for hours after you finish bootcamp.
Problem: You Aren’t Seeing Results
The next issue that may arise is that you’re failing to see the results you’re after. When this is the case, the solution here is to just do something different and to focus on increasing the intensity of your workouts and minimising your rest periods. Focus on performing each exercise with perfect form so you get the most out of every rep and every exercise. That should get you back on track to success again.
Problem: You Don’t Have A Gym Membership
If you are on a strict budget due to your wedding and can’t afford a bootcamp membership, don’t let this stop you from obtaining your ideal body. You can easily perform a workout in the comfort of your own home that will still get you fast results that you’ll be proud of.
Pick up a set of dumbbells and perform a series of squats, lunges, step-ups, push-ups, bent over rows, shoulder presses, bicep curls, and tricep extensions. You’ll target each and every muscle group in just 10-15 minutes total for an ultra-fast workout that you don’t need to leave the house for.
Problem: You’re Injured
Finally, the last predicament you might find yourself in is if you’ve become injured. If that’s the case, you’ll want to either take one week off and let the body heal itself, or you’ll want to focus on doing an alternate exercise instead.
Sometimes by simply working the muscles in a different manner you can break free from the injury and get the area healing without taking time away from bootcamp.
So there you have some solutions to remember for your workout problems. Pay attention to your set-up and can get past any hurdle without a struggle.
