I've spent many years as a fitness trainer. Over the course of my career, I've had countless clients ask me the same five questions. To get you started on your journey to fitness, I thought it might be a good idea to just answer the five most common questions I've been asked. These answers will give you a general idea of what you should expect as you embark on your journey to a fit and healthy lifestyle.
1. What Can I Do To Get Better Legs?
The answer to this question largely depends on what you consider “better” legs. A regime that includes cardio, as well as exercises targeting muscles in the legs seem to have the greatest results. A fitness professional can help you find a routine to meet your specific goals.
2. What Do I Have To Do To Lose My Gut?
This is a complex question because there are a few things you need to get rid of a gut. You must lower your overall body fat. You must also stay hydrated at all times to keep water weight and bloat down. Finally, you will need to train and strengthen your core muscles. These three keys are what will melt away belly fat.
3. How Much Water Should I Drink?
Drinking water is important to your physical health. Once upon a time, experts believed there was a one-size-fits-all answer to this question. That isn't true anymore. Generally speaking, you should be drinking between .5 ounces to 1 ounce of water for every pound that you weigh. Those living in cool climates who don't exercise much should aim for the lower end of the range. Those in warmer climates who are actively training should aim for the top end of that range.
4. How Much Cardio Should I Do?
Most doctors agree that people looking to lose weight should engage in about two and a half hours of cardio each week. You can spread that across as many days as you like, as long as each session is at least 10 minutes long.
5. How Many Times Per Week Should I Train?
Training four to five days a week in the gym seems to yield the best results, as long as you have a structured routine. Every muscle group you work out should have a few days rest. So, if you work out your arms on Monday, they should rest until Friday before working them out again.
