Being thin like a chopstick or appearing and being a size zero is no longer the ideal achievement that every woman yearns for. A strong and toned physique is the need of the hour and something that would keep you going. Wonder why? Because when you have a stronger and toned physique you appear to be more confident and powerful.
Being a strong and independent woman can give you the power and confidence to achieve anything. Given any situation, you would be able to handle that with ease. What also comes with having a toned physique is that you’d look great in whatever you choose to wear. Isn’t that a double bonanza?
But does getting a stronger and toned physique to be achieved overnight? Remember ‘ Rome was not built in a day’. It takes patience, strategy, willingness to adapt to make it happen.
Also, keep in mind that the gym is not the only way or the only solution that would yield you a toned physique.
Here are a few tips which could help you on this journey.
1) Goal setting
A journey needs a plan to make it happen. Not knowing the destination and route will leave you being lost. So get your goals set on what you want to achieve. If you are on the higher side or obese make sure you focus on losing weight and toning down your body. On the other hand, if you are thin your focus should be on gaining enough weight and muscle building. All this should be done the right way at a consistent pace. Doing it in haste or opting for plans that guarantee quick results will land your body in trouble if not now somewhere in the future too. So make sure you decide to do it the right way by making a conscious choice. So your workout routine and the diet or meal plan that you follow makes you remain focused throughout the journey and setting goals is the first and foremost step that rewards you.
2) Charting out the right meal
Food that we consume is something that helps to fuel our bodies. It shouldn’t be destroying the body in the process of consumption.
On the contrary, stopping to consume as part of a diet plan is not going to be of any help at all. Remember food is fuel.
A good diet and a great workout routine go hand in hand to make you achieve a strong and toned physique. If you do not pay much attention to what goes into your body, it is going to show up in your physique and metabolism. Foods rich in sodium, sugar, and fats can help you curb hunger pangs, make you eat more than what is required making your body pile up the pounds but in the long run, will also be the reason for you to succumb to chronic illness. This is the main reason that you should be aware of what your food is made of before it goes inside your body. So a balanced diet that has carbs, proteins, fibers, and vitamins is the right choice.
Plan and cook your meals I’m advance so that you don’t run hastily at the last minute. Most importantly this would help you in avoiding yourself from reaching out to unhealthy food options such as ready to eat, sugar, and sodium loaded foods. Choose a meal plan that suits your body type and one that would help you in reaching your goal.
3) Workout routine
A great workout routine sets the crux on your journey. Eating right and working out with a proper routine helps you in achieving the goal the right way. Chart out a consistent routine, which will help you keep the momentum of making you reach the goal. If you do not have a routine set you will probably lose track and interest in moving ahead in the journey. So always remember consistency is the key.
If you cannot set a routine on your own, you could ask the gym instructor to help you out with a routine that will make you stay on track and push you further.
4) Keep clean
Sweating is probably going to happen when you start working out. So make sure that you keep yourself clean and well hydrated. This will help flush out toxins the right way.
Be it home or gym always takes a shower post working out. It would help you cool down and also relax the muscles.
With us being in the middle of the pandemic, it is important to maintain social distancing, washing hands frequently, and always carry a face mask and hand sanitizer.
5) Choosing the right Gym gear
Nothing gives you much pleasure than seeing how well you fit into gym gear. The more you work out it’s going to make it even better. Choosing fashionable and functional gym gear is a must. With numerous clothing lines in this gym gear business, you sure do have a big ocean of choices.
6) Weight lifting is not something to be afraid of
Lifting weights is not to gain weight and appear to be bulging. This is a notion that needs much clarity. Lifting weights makes you athletic and makes you appear toned. This way of packing muscles also helps in bringing down the risk of osteoporosis. This muscle build-up will help in supporting your spine thereby yielding a benefit in lifting weights. So make sure that you include lifting weights into your workout routine.
7) stay sober
Alcohol is going to make you gain and pile up empty calories, disrupt sleep cycles, and increase cortisol production that’s going to cause stress. Drinking alcohol during this journey would lead to a derailment. Save your drinks only for special occasions. Your Friday and Saturday nights can wait but not before your journey to attain the toned physique.
Women often tend to gain more weight on the lower body. Your butt, thigh needs to be toned to not make you look like a money bag.
So how do you achieve a firmer butt or lift it to make it appear toned?
Once you achieve your goal, make sure that you remain consistent to maintain the health and continue to train and this will in turn become your lifestyle.
Women could be seen as resorting to taking treatments to make them appear young and fit.
