Well its that time of year again. Everybody is scrambling to get in shape for their swim suits and those lazy summer days on the beach. Or maybe it’s just for the lack of clothing that we wear as the weather heats up.
Whatever the reason, this is definitely the season to get in shape.
So here are my series of tips to get in shape for summer (life). They may sound like common sense, that is because they are, but I guess everybody just needs a little kick up the butt and a reminder now and then, or we’d all be in great shape all year round. It’s not that hard, just eat sensibly and move regulary.
So my first tip to you: Don’t skip your workouts!
Every person and every workout is different, but as a general rule of thumb, you would burn approximately 600 calories in 1 hour of my training.
So lets use this average figure of 600 calories per workout for my calculations.
I recommend training 5 days per week. This = 3000 calories burned per week.
If you want to burn 1 kg of fat, you have to burn approximately 7700 calories.
So without looking at nutrition in this tip, it would take 2 1/2 weeks to burn off 1 kg of fat without skipping any workouts.
Lets say you train 3 days per week, it will now take you 1 month to lose that kilo of fat.
Train 2 days per week and we are now looking at 6 weeks to lose that 1 kilo of fat.
This may sound silly, but some people only train once a week. They are looking at 3 months to lose 1 kg of fat.
So here’s your first tip to getting that body you want; Train regularly and don’t skip your workouts!
Now this tip is taking into consideration movement only, but I think we all know that it is what goes into our mouths that is critical to weight loss, so we will look at this in next week’s tip: Let’s get fit for summer Part 2.
