Working out makes us feel good while we’re doing and even after, but did you know that there are mistakes we can make while trying to live a healthy lifestyle? In this article we will review 5 workout mistakes that everyone makes. You may even find that you are making these same mistakes!
1. Do not skip breakfast
Skipping breakfast is not the right way to start your day. In order to maintain a healthy lifestyle the proper way to start your day is to eat a healthy and balanced breakfast. The reason that many women do this is to save calories before they work out, but what they don’t realize is that eating first thing in the morning will boost your metabolism and will give you the energy you need to get through a vigorous workout.
2. Weight Room addict
It is important that you learn to build muscle with strength training if you want to lose fat because muscle tissue burns more calories than fat. Cardio also helps burn calories to decrease your overall body fat.
3. Working out twice a week
You were doing so great why did you stop? Yes going to the gym twice a week is a lot of effort, but it’s still not enough if you want to make a significant impact when it comes to changing your lifestyle. If you want to see results you’re going to have to work for them, try boosting your work out regime to 4-5 times a week and I guarantee you’ll see results.
4. Walking Guru
You’re practically the poster child for walking, but did you know that even walking is not enough to put your body back into shape. Walking is still a great way to get some exercise in, but you need to psychically challenge yourself to do more or you will not see results.
5. Sip on smoothies
