A Easy But Effective Plan To Lose Fat After 40, 50 and Above

Deciding to get in shape is a goal that many people strive for, but sometimes it’s not that easy. That’s why it is important that you are focused and ready to commit. Without the proper motivation or base of knowledge, your attempt may not succeed. The article below provides you with ideas to make getting in shape exciting.


Music has an almost magical quality that gets even the most sedentary people moving. It is hard to resist singing along or moving to the beat of your favorite music. Making music the center of your work-out routine is essential. Turn up the music and get moving. Music can lift your spirits and give you the extra push you need to follow through with your fitness goals.


When you are about to exercise you should take a friend or two along. Group fitness tends to make exercising more enjoyable. By having someone to chat with, your workout seems to fly by. Pleasant company is distracting enough so that you won’t focus on your aching muscles. Working out with friends can be more fun than you think.


Check out one of the latest video-game workouts. Videos provide an essential distraction to daily workouts. You will be so focused on the game that you will not even feel tired. Hours will quickly pass before you will realize you have been working out the whole time.


Part of your fitness plan should include buying some flattering workout clothes. There is nothing more demoralizing than wearing a pair of old, ugly sweatpants. If you look good while you exercise, you’ll be more motivated to go out there and work out.


Doing the same exercise routine over and over again is dull and will make you want to quit. You will avoid or skip doing a boring exercise and eventually give up doing it altogether. Add excitement to your exercise routine by changing it up frequently. It will be easier for you to enjoy your work out and stay motivated.


When you reach a particular fitness goal, don’t forget to treat yourself. This is a great way to stay motivated. Your reward can be very simple, such as purchasing a new outfit or indulging in a longed-for dessert. Make sure the treats involved are pleasurable, but easily attainable.


It is not mandatory for exercise to be boring. There are many ways you can make exercise fun. Give some consideration to the following ideas as you begin creating your workout plan.

    Good video, I just want to emphasize something.

    In most exercises, we are encouraged to keep our backs straight. But not with this exercise. I used to keep my back straight during the whole motion of the crunch (I do weighted crunches for bodybuilding) and I would feel lower back pain. Then I realized you have to contract your abs, so that they curl up. With a straight back comes straight abs. Don't do this. The lower back should only leave the floor or bench (or whatever surface you're using) later on in the crunch, not right from the beginning.

  17. My butt be in the way trying to do the hand behind head. I can't keep my back st8t with it in the way … Need tips.

  18. Juliet C says:
