How To Get Stronger With Every Exercise You Do!
When people draw their exercises program, the target is not to simply cut weight. They also want to become stronger and enjoy the benefits of living a fit lifestyle.
However, becoming stronger remains a key mirage to most people. As a polo trainer for more than 10 years, I have had to deal with this subject occasionally to ensure that all my clients get fit and extra strong with every exercise. This post is a demonstration of the main strategies you can adopt to get stronger with every exercise.
Always get ample rest between workouts
There is a growing misconception that for one to grow stronger, the best method is a regular workout. However, your body needs a lot of rest after every workout.
The strenuous exercises you do at the gym or at home tears down the muscles, ligaments, and body tissues. If you work out more and every day, the damaged tissues do not get ample time to recover and grow stronger.
One of the best strategies on how to get stronger with every exercise you do is planning to exercise heavily about 3 days every week (example; Monday, Wednesday, and Friday). It is also prudent to rotate the groups of muscles trained every time and giving them ample time to recuperate.
Ensure to train all body muscle groups
Body strength cannot be measured based on a single group of muscles. Some people are interested in having big arms but care less about the abs.
To become stronger with every exercise, you are advised to train every part of the body (muscle groups). Because your body muscles work together, they need equal attention by identifying the exercises that strengthen them. For example, a strong core can help one to bench press more weight using arms.
You can commit one day to exercise the leg muscles while others are dedicated to the hands, core and other muscles. As you alternate the muscles, they get ample time to heal and rejuvenate.
Eat plenty of calories
Building muscles will no doubt require a lot of energy that comes from burning calories. Therefore, you must take enough calories to support lean muscle development.
Now, even as you focus on taking more calories, it is very crucial to note that not all calories are good! You should avoid refined sugars and sugary beverages because they raise the risk of problems such as overweight, obesity and cardiac related issues.
The best sources of calories are the slow carb-releasing foods such as whole grain cereals, nuts, and vegetable oils. Besides, building muscles cannot be effective unless all the nutrients are also consumed in sufficient proportions.
Every meal should include additional proteins, vitamins, and minerals from sources such as lean meat, egg, sea food, fish, veggies, and loads of fruits.
Take plenty of water
When you exercise, a lot of waste is generated by the muscle cells as they burn the calories to supply energy. If the waste is not eliminated promptly, it accumulates and starts damaging the cells you want to build.
To facilitate faster removal of all the waste from the body, you must always take plenty of water. Note that water should be taken all the time and not only during the exercises.
