The exercise regimen
I usually do strength training 6 times a week and cardio on 1 day. Strength training is a type of physical exercise specializing in the use of resistance to induce muscular contraction, which builds the strength, anaerobic endurance, and size of skeletal muscles.
Cardio exercise raises your heart rate through repetitive movements of your arms and legs. This incorporates a variety of aerobic exercises, which increase your breathing rate along with your heart rate to channel more oxygen to your hard-working muscles.
Cardio choices include bicycling, running, walking briskly, jumping rope and swimming. Gym equipment such as elliptical machines and treadmills offer cardio exercise, as do many gym classes such as step aerobics. If you have joint or back pain, opt for low-impact exercises such as swimming, walking or bicycling.
Going for the rock-hard abs
Monitor your diet- testament to the fact that abs are made in the kitchen. Prepare your own meals. Steaming has become one of my favourite ways of cooking food. Read the labels of what you buy- you are what you eat. Minimize junk food by eating it in moderation.
Consistency is the key. Living a busy active life means I am always burning calories.
Those do’s and don’ts
Do’s: Always keep active. Stick to a routine. Incorporate new exercises regularly. Read when you can about new exercises/supplements, etc. Knowledge is power.
Dont’s: Eat out every night. Drink excessively. Live off fizzy drinks. Start and stop training -be consistent.
