You want to learn how to get rid of your muffin top, so you joined a gym. But trying to exercise when you’re not sure what you’re doing can be frustrating. Exude Fitness in New York City provides a one-on-one trainer who will help you make sure you're excersing the correct way. This recent article in Metro takes a look at what you may be doing wrong. Take a look at the following:
- Improper or no stretching: Few people realize the importance of stretching and the right time to do it. You need to warm up, stretch and then work out in order to get the best results. Warming up and stretching prepares your body for strenuous exercise. Neglecting to do so can result in an injury. Warm up with a mild exercise that works up a sweat, such as using the treadmill or the stationary bike. Your personal trainer at Exude Fitness will teach you the proper way to warm up and stretch to ensure you get the maximum benefits from your workout.
- Neglecting your core: Your core muscles are in your lower abdominal region, upper legs and groin. Most people tend to focus only on their arms and chest. The best time to exercise your core muscles is at the beginning of your workout. If you wait until the end, you’ll be too tired and lose steam. This can make you either skimp on your core exercise or completely leave it out. A personal training session at Exude Fitness can help you learn the proper way to exercise your core muscles.
- Lifting excessive weights: Lifting extremely heavy weights may look impressive, but there’s very little benefit to it. Lifting moderate weights with more repetitions is better for toning your muscles and burning calories. If you’re not sure how heavy your weights should be, your Exude Fitness personal trainer can help create an exercise plan that works best for you.
