Slimmin' (down) ain't easy.
Weight training isn't either, and you need both to work if you're going to get the best results with your new exercise regimen.
Overall, finding a workout routine that best suits your needs is difficult, and even harder to be consistent with. Most athletes have a ton of trouble sticking to the commitment and achieving results that they’re proud of.
Unfortunately, what most of those same athletes lack is a stable plan that’ll not only help them, but actually push them to where they want to be in a month, six months, or even a year.
Here are some tips on ensuring that once you start working out, you stay on track and reach your goals quickly.
1. Determine What Muscle Groups You Want to Target
Always had trouble building leg strength? It’s not uncommon for athletes to have some muscle groups get results faster than others. What you should assess first is which muscle groups you want to work on. While it’s important to be a complete athlete that’s well-rounded in your routine, you also won’t see results as quickly when doing general workouts that don’t target any specific area. That’s fine in the case that you just want to get in shape for long-term results. However, if you want to establish confidence quickly and set yourself apart in the weight room, take the time to study how to create focus areas for your workouts, as well as the best ways to keep yourself on track. Here are some tips from our team at Troomy to set yourself apart in the weight room and in the mirror.
2. Surround Yourself With a Strong Support Team
Support is everything. Sometimes the only positive voice you’re going to hear all day is your own, and you need to be able to find outlets that can be positive for your workout results to improve. This could be anything from podcasts, workout partners, motivating music, and more. Remember the resources you have available to you today.
Additionally, sometimes even friends can be a detriment to your workout success. For example, if you’ve been going to the gym with your friend for years and never seen results together, that may not be the best fit for your new workout regimen. While it can be fun to work out together, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to get results together.
Consider refocusing your routine with a new workout partner, or even just switching up your schedule so you have lighter days with friends, and more strenuous days with those who are pushing towards the same goals you are. Remember: iron sharpens iron.
Nutrition can change your life. When you find a diet that suits your needs best, you can greatly benefit your workout results as well.
The real trick is finding the right proteins and energy-boosting greens in your diet. A good general rule of thumb is to have starch, protein, and a vegetable in all three meals of the day. This allows you to build consistency that you can rely on rather than loading up one meal and falling short in breakfast and lunch.
However, some proteins can make you feel sluggish, and it depends on the person rather than the diet itself. Make sure you find a protein that is both beneficial nutrition-wise but also in terms of energy.
4. Daily Routine and Consistent Workout Schedule
Your daily routine is a huge component as well. Without a strong routine in place, you’re going to have trouble staying consistent with results. For example, if you work out hard for two days and then take six days off, you’re going to have more trouble with sporadic results. To get better results for yourself, you should try getting on a routine workout regimen that’ll push your limits but also not leave you completely drained the rest of the week.
Unfortunately, that’s usually easier said than done. Commitment is the hardest part of working out and sticking to what results you want to achieve. Fortunately, there are natural, organic routes to making the whole process for you a bit easier.
5. Add Nootropics to Your Daily Routine
Nootropics are another great route to expedite results with better overall body wellness, an improved mental state, and more potential benefits to your workout routine. Start with finding which areas of your daily routine are lacking, and target those areas with supplements appropriately.
For example, if you can only go to the gym after work and are always dead tired by the time you make it there, our Boost mushroom gummies may be a great option for you to get some much-needed energy at the end of the day. Mushrooms are the “superfood” of today that we should all be taking advantage of in our daily routines.
Luckily, it’s easy to get started using gummies without any extra time in the kitchen, or worrying about the shelf life of your fresh mushrooms.
