Tips When Working Out

I actually really enjoyed writing my last fitness post so I thought I would keep it up. Since working out more regularly, I have learnt a lot so I thought I would share some of those tips with you today. If you have any tips, feel free to comment them down below.
The first one I think is so important, it is all about your form over how many reps you do. Your form is something which will determine whether you are doing the move properly or whether you are doing it wrong. When you do it wrong, it could lead to working the wrong muscles and injuring yourself. When you do reps of something, your form improves but rushing your moves will cause you to loose form so keep it slow and steady while making sure you are doing the move properly. If you are not sure on how to do a particular move, then you can simply google it and there is almost likely a video including the move you want to do.

Next up is one I hate doing but one which is so effective. Sets are key when it comes to working out. If you don't know what sets are they are when you repeat your workout routine for a set number of times. I think that these are so effective because they really test your stamina and allow you to further improve your form. I hate doing sets because they are boring and painful but they work and push you so definitely give them a go.

I think that this one goes with out saying but it is one that I think is still forgotten. Take breaks because otherwise you are pushing your body too much. You can do an active break and just march or sit down and drink some water. I always have a break in a workout whether it is after each move or after a set. When you do have a break set a realistic time so you don't end up forgetting about the rest of the workout, maybe 20 seconds to a minute.

I don't know about you, but I get so bored when I repeat the same workout over and over again and so I think it is so important to Switch it up. There are endless amounts of moves you can do which will target any part of your body. On a weekly basis, I don't do the same workout twice, just because I am still finding what works for me but I definitely think that it's what keeps me motivated. When I find something that works for me, I do stick to it but I mix things up whether that is reps, combinations, sets anything just to keep it fresh.

Finally the last thing I have to say is to Track your progress. This is so important because, like the last point, it keeps me motivated. Progress can be whatever you want it to be, whether that is physical or numerical but personally I don't weight myself for many reasons which I could spend a whole post talking about, but I like to take photos. For example, I take photos every couple of weeks whether it is a good or bad day just to see whether I have made progress, whether anything has appeared or looks different. If you don't track then I suggest you do just to see how it goes.

Comment below some of your tips!
