How to get the best results of your training
- Be honest to yourself. Do you want to become a better athlete? Do the proper training and take advice. If you train for your well-being, just be active with what you like!
- If you want to excel in sports, get the right equipment. But if you exercise to be healthy, take what you have, just as long as you work out!
- Push your boundaries and move out of your comfort zone, especially if you have a certain goal like a tough run or tournament. If your goal is to have a healthier lifestyle, you do not always have to work harder, longer or more.
To drastically decrease risks for cardiovascular deceases, some types of cancer and type II diabetes, and lower your blood pressure, you ‘only’ need to:T
- Be active for at least 30 minutes a day, for example walking, gardening or swimming.
- Get sweaty and get your heart rate up 2-3 times a week.
- Do what is easiest and most fun for you.
Remember, the body is made for physical activity. One minute of training statistically gives you a five hour longer life!
