Getting the most out of your exercise Routine

getting the most of your exercise routine

We all know that looking good takes work and to achieve that we need to work out to make our bodies to be better, faster and stronger. To obtain a healthy body and achieve the best during our work outs we also need to take care of our bodies. That means having the right tools, a balanced diet and adequate restorative time ensuring that we get the most of our workouts.

Look The Part

Did you know that your workout gear can have a direct impact on your health that is why slipping into a new pair trainers can immediately make you feel healthier before you even begin to break a sweat. Old, worn shoes are one of the most common causes of injury especially if you are a runner. Always consider your foot type, is it flat, neutral or high-arched, when buying your trainers. Also pick clothing that is slim-fitted and designed to absorb sweat making you more comfortable when you run or workout.

Track Your Progress

You can track your progress with a wide range of fitness apps that monitor your activity levels and advise on your diet.

Fuel Your Fitness

Make the most out of your fitness routine by giving your body the fuel it needs so drink 500ml of water to avoid dehydration an hour before an intense workout. It is also a good idea to fill your body up with slow burning carbohydrates, before your workout. Feeling low on energy before your workout, eat a date or a handful of raisins as they are fast-burning natural sugars that will give you a quick energy-boost.

Workout Boosting Supplement

We all know that a balanced diet is important when it comes to health and fitness, but supplements can give you the essential ingredients that you are lacking. If you’re athletic you want to include Vitamin B in your diet to help your body break down carbohydrates, whilst Vitamin C will help you metabolise them and protect your immune system. Vitamin D will assist your body to absorb calcium, promoting healthier bones.

Recharge Is Important

Your body needs to recover after intense exercise, so allow it adequate time to repair. Protect your muscles with a supplement that will increase your endurance and protects your cells. Fresh ginger in boiling water are a great natural remedy for aching muscles or try a spoon of turmeric, a natural anti-inflammatory.

Before taking any supplements do speak to a health adviser for advice on which supplements are the best for you.

Be:fit London 2015

Over the Bank Holiday weekend i went along to Be:Fit London, the only women's fitness show in town!

I'm not exactly a health freak but i have been in the Gym recently trying to get sexy for the summer so I figured it worth coming down to see if I could get some tips.

I attended Be:fit London last year but other than that i am a Fitness expo virgin so i didn't know what to expect.
Last year I had a blast but the only complaint i had was there wasn't as much venders as I expected and the venue was kind of small (Even if it was nice to be by the river). That wouldn't be an issue this year as Be:fit was now in a new location the Design and Business centre; and I am happy to say there was loads of different brands to meet, as well as a wide range of fitness classes to join in, expert talks, cooking demos, etc.

I loved that there was also dedicated chill-out areas, where you could go hang out and regroup when it gets a bit too over whelming.

In all I had a lovely time but I wish I allowed myself more time there as there was so much to see, taste, and demo.

Did you get to attend Be:fit London over the weekend?

What were your thoughts?
