There are tons of people out there that are exercising on a regular basis but yet they are not seeing the results. We will talk about 4 reasons why you may not be getting the results you believe you should be getting.
Exercising on the regular is half the battle achieving your fitness goals. Your diet needs to be directly connected to your whatever you are trying to achieve from exercising. It is a complete contradiction to have an effective exercise routine with a steady diet of McDonald’s diet.
If your working out for muscle try to be creative with the ways you get your protein. If you are exercising to lose weight make sure you eat too many carbohydrates.
Not getting the proper sleep may be the silent killer to why your workout routine is not very effective. A lack of quality sleep can affect your hunger hormones and energy levels. When you working out you want to be at peak performance.
“People who sleep better report exercising more, and people who exercise tend to sleep better,” – Matthew Buman, Ph.D
Give Up The Booze
You found an exercise routine that you’re in love with, but your social life consists of an occasional beer, glass of wine, or cocktail. I understand that drinking may be completely integrated into the nightlife, but your drink may be slowing your fitness progress.
Alcohol gives your body a bunch of sugar, disrupts your sleep, and even slows the recovery process for your muscles. I am not saying you have to give up Alcohol totally, but giving up Alcohol for a few weeks or months can work magic for your physical fitness.
