Alright, I will be honest I've been slacking in posting on here the past couple months. I am going to turn that around, because I know, the suspense is killing you.
Yeah, I didn't think so either.
But, as promised I will present some exercise advice for all those beginners like I was a few years ago. Now, originally I was going to have pictures taken of me doing the actual exercises, but unfortunately I was unable to do so for a couple reasons.
1. I don't think anyone wants to see that
2. I didn't want to be that person at the gym.
So, therefore, I will explain in depth the exercises I do. I will, however go piece by piece each week so I do not overwhelm anyone so I'll begin with...
Okay, for this I will explain what I do. You don't have to do this (I mean you don't really have to do any of this), but I generally do a few things.
- If it is Chest/Tricep or Back/Bicep day, then I will do 30 minutes total of cardio. If it is Leg/Shoulder day, I will do 10 minutes cardio
- Generally, I will ATTEMPT to run straight 30 minutes, but this isn't always the best thing to do. First, it's so mother******* boring. More importantly though, there is is this concept titled, "Cardio Bunny." This is where people think the way to lose weight is to just RUN, RUN, AND RUN.
NO. You are not Forrest Gump, you don't always need to run.
Now, I am NOT saying running isn't important, because it is very important. Cardio in general is important, but you do not need to run the same pace for 30 minutes, because not only is it so incredibly boring, but it is unnecessary.
Here is my advice to you when it comes to cardio.
- If you are going to do just the treadmill, break it up. In other words, instead of running 30 minutes at the same pace, try to mix it up. Running 10 minutes of sprints every other minute, or try to change the pace every 10 minutes.
- If you do not want to just do the treadmill, trying breaking it up. For instance, do 10 minutes of running, 10 minutes of the bike, and 10 minutes of the row machine (Also, very good machine). It'll go a lot faster doing it in small time frames such as this.
- Or, if you don't like any of that, try out HIIT (high intensity interval training). For more information on that, visit http://www.bodybuilding.com/. I HIGHLY recommend this website for anything fitness related. If you do not believe me about any of the stuff I say, I promise this website will be incredibly helpful for you.
I hope I helped a bit for your future workout today. Either way, here's a a little bit of Miley for your day.
