For decades, people were told that they had to pick a fitness goal and never stray from it. Usually, the goal was either to lose weight or to gain muscle.
People who wanted to lose fat were directed to the cardio area of the gym. They were asked to engage in intense workouts and then eat a post-workout salad.
Those who were interested in gaining muscle were told to eat or drink before, during, and after lifting weights. Only the barbell counted in weight lifting, not cardio, cross-training, or mobility exercises.
Today, the recommendations have changed. Rather than losing fat just to lose fat, it’s about achieving overall fitness. This includes engaging in cross-training and activities that help you lose fat and gain muscle. If this is your fitness goal, here are some tips that will help.
Choose the right exercise
To lose fat and build muscle, engage in high-intensity (HIIT) exercise sessions. This includes doing short bouts of intense workouts lasting anywhere from 10 seconds to a minute. Then performing low-intensity exercises as your body recovers.
Classic bodybuilding can also help you achieve your goal. But if you choose this route, always make sure to regularly intensify your training and include other activities.
I’m not just talking about the exercises that you do at the gym. You can also engage in other everyday activities that will give you an opportunity to be active. This includes:-
- Taking the bike to the grocery store or the pharmacy instead of the car
- Going for a walk with a friend
- Running to get take-out meals instead of having them delivered… everything adds up!
Eat a balanced diet
Eat meals that include a little of each nutritional group, such as:
- Carbohydrates, found in oatmeal, whole grains, and potatoes
- Proteins, found in lean yogurt, legumes, poultry, or tofu
- Good fats in avocado and nuts, but also animal fats, especially from fish
- A serving of vegetables for important vitamins.
Schedule an Emsculpt NEO session
Get Emsculpt NEO treatment. It is the first and only non-invasive body contouring solution that combines 2 energies, RF and HIFEM+, to build muscle, tighten skin and burn fat.
Emsculpt NEO uses HIFEM technology (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Technology) to contract muscle fibers at intensities that cannot be achieved during voluntary training. As a result, the number and growth of muscle fibers and cells increase.
The treatment also uses radio frequency (RF) heat. This raises the temperature under the skin by several degrees. The increase in temperature leads to electromagnetic fat reduction.
Clinical studies show that on average it leads to a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat and a 25% increase in muscle volume. It is particularly effective in the elimination of belly fat. For belly fat reduction in Connecticut contact Soroka Lose Inches.
Depending on factors like your current fitness level, age, exercise experience, and genetic makeup, you may have to wait longer to see the results you’re hoping for.
One thing you should keep in mind is that the number on the scale won’t tell you anything about what’s going on in your body. For example, the scale will not tell you that you are doing your body good on a cellular level or that your body composition is changing.
To check your progress, ask yourself the right questions. Do you sleep better than before? Do you feel stronger? Do you last longer during your cardio sessions, are you able to add a series to your HIIT training or lift more weight than a few weeks ago?
