Trying to understand the mistakes that prevent you from losing weight with active training, together with Todd Williams expert personal trainer in Etobicoke.
Your Workouts aren’t Intensive Enough
Exercise is always an effort on yourself. Each subsequent workout should be a little harder than the previous one. This is especially important for those who are working on muscle mass, because by gradually increasing the weight, the muscles will grow, will become more elastic, and a good shape will not be long in coming.
In order to reach your goals, you need to keep your body from adapting to the exercises you perform during your workout. Try to diversify them and combine different loads, work each muscle group and try new exercises to shock your muscles from their routine.
Lifting Too Heavy, or Too Light
You might have a time where you are tempted, in the training process, to “lighten” or “lighten up” the activity at specific time intervals. Excessive loads and super-intensive workouts can put stress on the body, which can be detrimental to health. Eventually, after a couple weeks or months, this is debilitating and instills the desire to get off the fitness track before reaching the desired goal.
To avoid this, you can mix up your workouts in one session to blow off steam and recharge. You can do intense exercises to build muscle, and in another session you can do smoother exercises to work all muscle groups and stretch.
Consuming too few calories and not changing the diet plan can lead to a steady adaptation of the body to the diet, stops the weight loss process and leads to a “plateau”.
Therefore, it is necessary to drink enough fluids (at least 30 ml per kg of weight), eat a proper and balanced diet, organize unloading and loading days, consume unsaturated fats and sleep at least 7-8 hours.
Not getting enough hours of sleep
Sleep, during which the body recovers, is very important. It is important to eat dinner at least 2 hours before bedtime and to ventilate the bedroom well. Before going to bed, it is best not to watch TV or sit on the phone for at least an hour prior to getting into bed. Sleep should take at least 7 hours at minimum to achieve the rest process the body needs to convert your caloric deficit for the day into weight loss.
