Ever wondered how often to workout to get better results?
Want to experience better fat loss or muscle gain?
Today Liz will cover the #1 concern with doing too much too soon. Make sure you’re not “overdoing” it by knowing the signs of overtraining.
Then watch all the way to the end of the video to see how many days per week a beginner should be exercising and how to intelligently progress your workout plan so you don’t get injured, sick or experience decreased performance.
If you really want to get great results, you’re going to have to dial in your nutrition.
There’s no way around it. Lucky for you we have a simple 10-day plan you can follow to jumpstart your metabolism and get the fat burning gears cranking.
Try it out and see what happens! What have you got to lose (other than maybe a couple extra inches 😉 )?
Benefits of Rest Days
You probably already know that incorporating rest days into your training routine is not only recommended, it’s essential. But do you know why?
There are two ways you can structure your workout programs — with or without full rest days.
If you’re a complete beginner, you’ll likely want anywhere from 1-3 days of restorative exercise or rest. If you’re more advanced, you can get away with only including 1 day per week for rest.
No matter what level you’re at, you ALWAYS want to incorporate 24-48 hours of recovery time after strength sessions for any particular muscle or muscle group.
This allows for the muscle fibers, tendons and ligaments to repair and recover from strenuous exercise. It will help you avoid injury, recover faster, and get stronger/leaner in the most efficient way possible.
So, say for example, you trained legs and lower body on Monday. You’d want to wait at least until Wednesday to train legs and/or lower body again.
Make sense? Great! See, exercise isn’t that hard, is it?! 🙂 You can do it!
