The year 2019 is almost here and most of us are once again coming up with some new year fitness goals. Well, I have absolutely no problem with the idea—except for the fact that many of us will give our resolutions up even before Easter comes.
But if you’re like me who’s really determined to achieve an ideal body build, you’re going to need these 5 new year fitness hacks shared by Tyrone Holmes.
See If You’re Really Ready
First up, Holmes shares:
“Make sure you’re both physically and mentally ready to start an exercise program.”
But how will you know in the first place? The author says it’s about checking with your doctor if an exercise program is good for you, plus checking on yourself about how committed you are to the program once it starts.
Make Up A New Year Fitness Plan
To successfully create a fitness plan, Holmes says you need to answer these three questions.
- When will you exercise?
- What type of exercise are you going to do?
- How much time are you going to dedicate in exercising?
For me, daily bodyweight exercises are always the easiest to begin with. Plus, if you’re going to revisit the top calisthenics I’ve been writing about, you’ll surely find them both engaging and beneficial.
3 More New Year Fitness Tips
With your readiness and a fitness plan laid out, I’d agree that there are three more tips you need to remember so you can keep your new year’s fitness goals. And these are as follows:
- Exercise with a friend.
“It will increase your chances for success, and you’ll have more fun.”
- For any new year fitness goal, don’t be too hard on yourself.
“…start with low-to-moderate intensity workouts. You may know people who train six days a week, but it’s fine to start with three.”
- Keep it real. I mean, be realistic about your toning goals.
“Start slow (i.e., low intensity and duration), develop a solid foundation of fitness and then build upon that foundation as your fitness improves.”
