Hello everyone. Today’s article is a guest post from Elva Lamont who writes for Simply Gluten Free.
When talking about muscle building and fitness the things that come into our mind are gyms along with weight training machines, dumbbells, diet charts etc. This list is only an indicator to the numerous activities that can form a part of the fitness regimen. It’s only a myth that one needs to visit a gym for a toned and fit body regularly. It’s the kind of lifestyle and eating habits that will decide the kind of body tone you possess. Following a healthy regimen along with good dietary habits is surely going to keep your whole body fit along with a fresh mind.
Make sure that you don’t break the regimen once you have started with exercising. Keep your timing and intensity of exercising in sync with the body demands and the diet you take in. Its of utmost importance that you maintain a balance between the diet that you take in and the amount of time you are giving on the exercises. Keeping loose weights like a set of dumbbells will add to your efforts and multiply the effects that are garnered. If you are not really ready to keep dumbbells or any exercising machines at home its better that you start doing weight lifting with other things such as buckets where the weight can be varied according to the requirements or progressively.
Free exercises like chin ups, push ups and pull ups along with aerobics and yoga will go a long way in keeping your body and mind in the best shape. The metabolic rate of the body will be in sync with the kind of physical activity that you undertake almost everyday. Increase and decrease the number and amount of weights according to your body’s requirements. If you are using dumbbells it’s quite easy to alter the amount of weight at any time.
Make it a point to stretch and flex your muscles before going in for any exercises or weight lifting. The body should get a warning as to what it will be exposed to in a few minutes so that it is ready for the weight lifting or any other training that you have planned for that day. Squats for legs, chin ups for your upper body and biceps, push ups for your chest, dips for the upper body work wonders and can be easily practiced at home. Working out at home has many advantages as it gives you the freedom of choosing your own time and is generally quicker than working out at the gym.
When you are exercising regularly you need to keep a close eye on your diet. However, if you suffer from celiac disease you need to take extra care and make sure everything you eat doesn’t upset your digestive system.
