Ask 8 Questions to Develop Perfect Workout Routine

#When you are seeking a daily exercise program, you must keep several things in mind. Everyone is different, and their workout needs are also a personal choice, mostly based on body type, energy level, and overall goals. What works for your best friend or sister, may not be the right fitness program for you.

As you look for a place to work out or an exercise program you enjoy, you need to think about your daily routine as well as your long-term goals. You can find locations online for every type of exercise program you can think of, one flawless for your energy level and body type.

 

Always Ask Before Starting a Perfect Workout Routine

Here are 8 questions you must answer to develop the perfect workout routine for your needs.

#1. What is my Current Health Status?

You will need to assess your current health and fitness level. This can be done alone or with the help of a fitness trainer. The idea is to figure out where you are, so you can decide where you want to be. Ask yourself if you can do, and then try, the following: touch your toes, monitor your resting heart rate, do a single squat without falling over, balance on one leg with your eyes closed, how much weight are you comfortable lifting, what is your current BMI(body mass index)[ref], and how do you feel about working out?

#2. Should I See My Doctor First? 

You will need to make an appointment with your regular physician, so he or she can give you the "OK" to take on a daily exercise program. You need to be sure our heart and lungs are strong enough to take the stress of strenuous workouts. If your doctor gives you the okay to begin exercising, start slowly to avoid cramps and injury. Your doctor may want you to build up your strength first by walking or swimming before starting something more intense like weight lifting or Zumba. 

#3. How Do You Like to Move? 

This question is important because you want to structure a workout program that you enjoy as well as one that will get you the results you need. If you don't like weightlifting, you will not stick to this type of program for the long haul. If you like to dance and move freely, you may sign up for classes such as Zumba or Bokwa. If you like a more independent style exercise program, try circuit training where you get to experience different weight training machines.

 

#4. How Do I Make The Time?

One of the biggest issues facing those who want to get in shape and become healthier is the time it takes to work out. No time is also the largest excuse for stopping or not starting an exercise routine. Like all things that important to you, you will need to schedule the time to work out. Make your exercise time a priority in your life and you will make the time each and every day. Use a calendar or scheduling app on your cell phone and it will be easier to get reminders and keep track of your workout times. 

#5. What if I Get Injured?

First, you should not worry about getting injured. You should learn from the beginning the proper way to work out and use all the equipment at the gym. This will prevent injuries(ref2). However, if you are injured away from the gym, or even if something happens at the gym, you will need to rest. Taking a break from your exercise program is not necessarily a bad thing. You will need to take some time off to heal, but be sure to get back at it as soon as you are able. If you wait too long to return to your exercise routine, you may begin to fall back into old habits of not working out.

#6. What if I Get Bored?

The key to maintaining your interest in working out and creating the body you want is to change things up once in a while. There are some fitness experts that claim you should change your workouts daily with a large mixture of exercises, weight lifting, dance, and yoga to keep things fresh and new. There will be times that you will get bored, but that is no reason to stop working out. If you go to a gym, ask for help creating a new routine. As your body changes, you will need to increase your weights and repetitions and this will also help with boredom.

#7. What if I Want to Get Strong, But Not Full of Muscles? 

Many individuals shy away from working out because they believe lifting weights will make them look like a bodybuilder. First, it takes years of dedicated weight lifting to become a competition-ready bodybuilder. The workout you do at the gym will add strength, but not muscles unless you change your diet and workout with more weight and longer periods of time. Lifting weights as part of your exercise routine helps with strengthening your muscles, but when combined with targeted exercise machinery, you will become healthy and strong, not full of muscles.

 

#8. What If I Don't Want to Give Up My Bad Foods?

When you work out, you can don't have to give up your favorite foods and drinks. However, once you begin an exercise program and stick to it, you will naturally want less and less of the "not-so-good-for-you" foods and beverages. You may want to begin eating better a couple of days a week and still eat your favorite foods for the rest of the week. Once our body begins to heal from the lack of exercise, and you begin to feel better, you will let go of the bad foods with ease. 

 

If you can answer these questions and honestly commit yourself to work out on a consistent basis, you will be rewarded with better health. You will not only feel better, you will look better and sometimes, one or the other is enough to keep you going.
