Where to start with your fitness journey

Well, the first place where to start with your fitness journey to get actual results would be your diet. No amount of exercise will ever make up for a bad diet. Therefore, the diet is one of the most important places that you can start. You also need to take into consideration that you want a diet that is for the long run. Not something that’s just going to be for a month or for a week, and it must be sustainable. So, you need to still enjoy the foods that you eat and still eat healthy at the same time, so you need to find a perfect balance between the two.

Now, furthermore, I’m not going to discuss diet, but lets talk about exercise.

So, for your workout routine, you need to start with the basics. For example, start by going two to three times a week to the gym and not start with something like four or five times a week. Besides, this is much harder to fit into your schedule. And you want to make this as easy as possible, but as challenging as possible at the same time. Once again, tis about balance between the two.

Now, where you should start with your workout is with the basics. So, this means push-ups and body weight squats. Just the basic exercises and not trying to do anything that is too challenging. The reason for this is that most of us, in the beginning, don’t have the proper amount of mobility to perform a technical exercise. For example, the deadlift, or a barbell back squat.

Now to increase your mobility

To increase your mobility, you want to do something like static and dynamic stretches. This will help increase your mobility dramatically. You will quickly be able to perform the more technical of exercises. Also, keep in mind that whenever you start with something like deadlifts or barbell back squats, that you want to focus on the technique and not on the amount of weight that you are lifting or squatting. Therefore, it comes highly recommended that you may need to get a personal trainer to teach you how to perform these exercises. Or, if you have a friend that can go with you to the gym, let him take a video and see then where you are doing it incorrectly or which areas you can improve on.

And as for a workout itself, you want to start always with a warm-up. Never skip your warm-up. This is crucial to help you to be able to perform the exercises correctly and preparing the body for the workout.

As for the workout itself, start with the most technical exercise first, and then finish off with the least technical exercise. Or the exercise that has the lowest risk of injury. And the main reason why you want to follow this order is because as you… During your workout, start to get tired and start to lose focus. Therefore, it is better to start with the exercise that is most technical and asks the most focus.

As for your cooldown, you can do cardio or use battle ropes or any other light exercise at the end, depending on your level. Or, you can change it up. Choose your last few minutes in gym just to burn extra calories and make it a high-intensity session.

And last but not least, we will be talking about supplements. Now, no supplement will ever make up for a bad diet, just like no amount of exercise will ever make up for a bad diet. So, there’s no supplement on the market that will be a magic cure and will magically give you the physique that you have been dreaming about. You have to, one, have the discipline to eat right and correct. Two, you need to focus on going to the gym or exercising at home.

And if you want to use supplements… Yes, supplements can help in some cases, but it’s only recommended that you do a little bit of research into supplements before you use them. You need to ask if the supplement is worth your money. Personally, I would recommend spending the money on having a better diet.
