Things to Consider When Choosing a Personal Trainer

Posted by Jessymeshak on December 27th, 2019

Walking. You can walk anytime or use a Metabolic Stretching Review  treadmill. All you need is a good pair of shoes. Start to walk for fitness, begin with five to 10 minutes at a time. Add a few minutes to each walk until you get to at least 30 minutes per walk. Interval Training will let you boost fitness, burn more calories, and lose weight.

The basic idea is to vary the intensity within your workout, instead of going at a steady pace. Whether you walk, run, dance, or do another cardio exercise, push up the pace for a minute or two. Then back off for two to 10 minutes. Exactly how long your interval should last depends on the length of your workout and how much recovery time you need.

Squats work several muscle groups -- your quadriceps quads, hamstrings, and gluteals glutes -- at the same time. Keep your feet shoulder-width apart and your back straight. Bend your knees and lower your rear as if you were sitting down in a chair. Keep your knees right over your ankles. Practice with a real chair to master this move. First, sit all the way down in the chair and stand back up. Next, barely touch the chair's seat before standing back up. Work up to doing the squats without a chair, keeping the same form.

Lunges. Like squats, lunges work all the major muscles of your lower body. They can also improve your balance. Take a big step forward, keeping your back straight. Bend your front knee to about 90 degrees. Keep weight on your back toes and drop the back knee toward the floor. Don't let the back knee touch the floor.
