3 tips for your personal sports programme – how to achieve your goals!
1) The reward principle
Even though the feeling after a training session is priceless, it is often challenging to overcome a lack of willpower. That is why Stefan’s tip includes a reward principle that focuses on consciously treating yourself. For example, that second helping of delicious potatoes for dinner is only allowed if you ran for 1 hour beforehand. If the “penalty” is a salad, then this principle can quickly bring positive results.
2) The training process
Clearly defined goals are essential for the training process. Only those with a concrete focus can measure their success. Personal training helps to achieve these goals with tips on what to look out for in the long term. It is important never to train right after eating. Warm-ups are also recommended to stimulate blood flow and the metabolism. You should consume around 1 litre of water during training to ensure sufficient fluid intake.
3) A holistic approach to everyday life
Everyone is familiar with the phrase “Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dine like a pauper”. Following this principle will set you on the road to success. Sport and nutrition go hand-in-hand, which is why reducing carbohydrates as the day goes on is the perfect addition to exercise. It is also important to achieve the best possible results from a personal workout session. A general rule of thumb is 3 sessions a week of 90 minutes.
Spring fever – the enemy of sport
Many people experience so-called spring fever from mid-March to mid-April. This is caused by the shift from the cold and dark time of year to the lighter and warmer climate of spring. The hormone balance can fall out of sync, leading to fatigue. That is why it is important to have a rock-solid training plan and good rewards for reaching your goals. Do not give in to fatigue; the secret receipe consists of exercise and as much daylight as possible.
