Your Fitness Training Part 3

Hi,

Welcome back to your fitness training series. 

We talked about your training strategy in the first post and about what almost everyone forgets when it comes to planning a fitness training program.

We left off the last post talking about intensity of training. 

Intensity is going to be different for someone that is a highly trained athlete in their twenties and someone that is 70 years old and hasn’t worked out for 40 years. 

That much is obvious.  But, what isn’t so obvious is what about your intensity levels?

Do you really need to do a high intensity program to get in shape or lose some weight? 

Are you going to be able to do that for the rest of your life?

Here is the key to getting the most out of any exercise program you do.  Actually this is a pretty good key for getting the most out of anything you do in life.  But that is another story.

That is consistency.  And that leads us back to the question we talked about last time.  Will your training program be something that you will do for the rest of your life?

That is why Tai Chi and Yoga are such popular programs.  These are two programs that you can do for the rest of your life. 

They are based on movements that allow you build some strength and flexibility and maintain that forever.

There was a Yahoo health alert about elderly people and some of their fitness routines just a few days ago.  One of the women was 92 years old and still teaching a yoga class.

And she had a figure that most 20 year olds would be envious of. 

So what should be your next step? 

First of all if you haven’t exercised in years, get started walking.  I don’t care if you can only walk 5 steps.  Walk those five steps, turn around and walk back. 

Rest if you have to.  Then do it again.  Do it a few times a day.  Build up from there. 

Now I know most people reading this are in much better shape then that.  But, maybe your friends or parents aren’t.  Get them moving too.

If you have a bike, start using it.  If you live near a hill, jog up it and walk down. 

These are all things you can do for the rest of your life.  And they will help you lose weight and keep the weight off.  (Assuming you also do the same thing with your diet – more later.)

What if you want to get stronger or have 6 pack abs?  Then you have do do some other things.

Stay tuned.

Thanks
