Workout mistakes you are probably making
Yes, running and swimming will help you lose weight, but do you know what will make your efforts pay off much faster and give you a better overall physique? Weights. They help build muscle which in turn increases the amount of fat burn your body experiences, even when at rest. 3. Working out on an empty stomach Science shows that the body gets into a fat burning mode 40 to 50 minutes into your workout. So fuel up about 90 minutes prior to the workout to have enough energy to get you to that mark. Eat something light, like a banana or have a small helping of plain yoghurt. 4. Not changing up your workout You have been working out the same way, running the same distance, lifting same amount of weights and getting frustrated when the scale doesn’t move. What is happening is that your body has hit a plateau. It has got used to the regimen and is not challenged anymore. The rule of the thumb is to change your regimen when it starts getting comfortable. When you can lift 20 kilogrammes easily, it is time to add 5 kilogrammes.
