Physical activity is an integral part of our everyday life. Every morning we wake up, get out of bed and go somewhere. To maintain good physical shape, look beautiful and be healthy, we additionally go in for sports. Everyone chooses their own sport for themselves, such as crossfit, yoga, swimming, boxing, etc.
Why is a Sedentary Lifestyle Harmful?
Due to a sedentary lifestyle, hypodynamia may develop. This disorder is manifested primarily by excessive weight gain, a number of cardiovascular diseases, disorders affecting joints, immune system, etc.
First of all, the disease affects people who are in an exhausted emotional state, perhaps even depressed. As a result, a person does not go anywhere, stays at home, binge eats from stress and at the same time does not spend consumed calories.
Can Medications be Helpful for Your Weight-Loss Journey?
In an attempt to get out of this state and start losing weight, people are looking on the Internet for a way to quickly and effortlessly lose weight. There are many so-called fat burner drugs, the effectiveness of which has not been proven. Moreover, their intake can have a very negative impact on health in general.
There is a patented injectable medication called Saxenda, which was invented specifically for use in weight loss. The active substance works on the principle of reducing appetite, from which, as a result, a person’s consumption of calories decreases. As a result, the weight decreases. But it is worth noting that using this medication requires a complex approach. You can not use drugs to reduce appetite and at the same time lie on the couch and do nothing. Doctors recommend exercising (at least moderate one) in order to achieve maximum results in the shortest possible time.
Benefits of Physical Exercises for the Body
To strengthen the cardiovascular system, it is very important to expose your body to daily physical activity. In this way you keep your body, blood vessels, joints and muscles in good shape. This will help with age to reduce the risk of thrombosis, heart attacks, and arthrosis.
There is a lot of research to understand what kind of exercise is better for burning fat and helping to lose weight. Most scientists are inclined to believe that this must be a complex exercise, where the largest possible number of muscle groups are involved. This can include cardio (running, jumping rope, jumping fitness), squats followed by a jump, crossfit ropes, swimming, weightlifting (swinging kettlebells in particular).
It has also been proven that yoga has a very fruitful effect on the body. Static postures (asanas) that a person takes and stands for a while contribute to the good movement of lymph throughout the body, reducing swelling. Also, static exercises may train your body better than ordinary resistance training.
Tips for Effective Fat Burning Using Sports
There are several rules that will help you effectively burn fat through sports.
- Don’t overeat before training. Some recommend not eating anything at all before training for 2 hours, as glucose stores begin to be burned in the body, thereby activating the fat burning process.
- Before doing key exercises to activate the fat burning process, it is advisable to do cardio: 20-30 minutes to run or walk fast will be enough.
- Never overload your body. This can lead to metabolic disorders and wasting of muscle mass.
- Repeat resistance exercises several times (say, 3-4 sets, 8-10 reps each), this activates fat burning and maintains muscle function.
- Be sure to use static exercises in combination with dynamic ones.
- Engage as many muscles as possible within one workout.
Do not forget about nutrition during your weight loss and sports journey. Proper and balanced nutrition gives about 80% of the result of work on weight loss.
Doctors recommend avoiding meals within a 2-hour period before workout, to avoid possible problems. However, if the training is morning and time does not allow you to wait 2 hours, you can eat in an hour, only the meal should be as light as possible.
Buckwheat or oatmeal is the best pre-workout meal to burn fat. Also, fruits and vegetables will help saturate the body with carbohydrates in the right amount. After training, it is best to eat protein to restore muscle mass. Such a meal can include chicken meat or lean fish along with plenty of vegetables. Try not to overeat. It may be better for you to divide meals into several “milestones” to feel fuller longer.
The Bottom Line
Hope these tips will be helpful for you in achieving your goals. Stay motivated, as this is also very important. You cannot succeed in a business in which you don’t want to be engaged.
