Are you exhausted of spending hours and hours at the gym performing the same workout routine? Don’t be! With this 3-day workout routine, you are about to shake things up.
There is a significant amount of people that give up their exercise routine after a month of not seeing any result. All that effort with such little rewards. Why? Let’s face it, if you don’t challenge your body it will remain the same, and doing only cardio is not the most effective way of getting in shape.
So, the frequent question is, what is the best workout that promises the fastest results? The sad reality is that there isn’t one singular answer. We all have different body types with different workout goals, so there is no one method to look a certain way. But if you want to feel and look healthy, you have to add some effort to your daily routine.
However, if you act smarter instead of working harder, you will look great and feel great.
Let’s begin with your daily diet. As a rule of thumb; weight loss and muscle gain is 75 percent diet and 25 percent exercise. Having that in mind, we can try to remember to eat smarter: with the right proportions, combining your cup of carbs with at least 4 ounces of protein and a larger amount of your favorite veggies for breakfast and lunch.
I know that sounds somewhat boring, but the good thing is that it doesn’t have to be that way! If you like cooking, you can do a little research and you will find out that there are thousands of way of making healthy meals delicious. You don’t have to (and you shouldn’t!) live eating salads as your only meal.
Another thing? Don’t forget to eat your snacks. An apple will fill you up before lunch, same as 12 almonds 3 hours after lunch. Protein is what really fills you up, so eating some egg whites with spinach it is an excellent choice for a snack or breakfast. Really love your sweets? Then why not try some protein shakes. I swear some of them taste just like ice cream or chocolate milk. Low-fat or fat-free yogurt is also great and also deliciously sweet protein option, especially when you pair it with your favorite fruits.
Let me introduce you to a functional 3-day workout routine for Strength & Conditioning.
First, keep in mind your major muscle groups, which are chest, legs, and back. You shouldn’t exercise the same muscles every day so they don’t get overtired and instead opt for leaving a day to rest between exercises. For example:
You’ll notice in the following agenda that in each workout day you are working on the biggest muscles since it’s an efficient way of starting to build strength and tone your body. You can get as creative you want with your exercises as long as you follow the format and push yourself.
