Getting Ready for Swimsuits Can Be a Battle
By Virginia Laird
For millions across the nation, getting ready (mentally and physically) to wear a swimsuit can be a battle. Each year, many set out to tone up and shed some weight as the spring approaches. However, too many fall short of their goal for a variety of reasons. Rather than letting this battle get you down, fitness experts suggest that you can be successful by making a commitment to change. These experts admit that when deciding how to begin your journey it is vital to select a path you know you can achieve. Fitness experts have offered a host of tips to help you get ready for your upcoming life by the pool, including:
- Add weights to your workout
- Track your progress
- Drink plenty of water daily
Add Weights to Your Workout
Experts suggest that adding weights to your workout is a great way to burn the unwanted fat. Research indicates that lifting weights can help the body continue to burn off calories long after the completion of your exercise routine. There is no need to add heavy weights. Fitness gurus suggest that simple light dumbbells, kettlebells, and other light weights which add resistance can be beneficial in reaching your goals. Now is the time to begin adding weights to your workout routine.
Track Your Progress
Research suggests that where there is a lack of recognizing progress, it can be difficult to stick to your plan. For this reason, fitness experts admit that tracking your progress is beneficial in keeping you on track. There are multiple ways to track your progress. For some, this can be as simple as weighing in on a weekly basis. Still, others prefer to take a measurement. There are some who combine these two methods to help track your progress. Start today tracking your success.
Drink Plenty of Water Daily
As you prepare yourself to begin a weight loss and toning regimen for the impending pool season, experts suggest that water consumption can play a huge role in your success, or lack thereof. Research suggests that consuming plenty of water can help curb your appetite. It is suggested that you should consume at least half of your weight in ounces each day. Staying properly hydrated not only helps promote weight loss, but helps with muscle tone too. If you find yourself out and about sans water to drink, investing in a water bottle to take with you can be helpful in meeting your water goal each day.
