#Fitness – How I train to get in shape

 

Lately a huge number of people have been asking me what I do to stay fit and how i get muscle definition where I want it. Even though a huge part of success in fitness comes from good nutrition, going to the gym also plays a big part in it. So in this blogpost you’re going to read all about how, when and where I workout.

 

Firstly, I am very consistent with my workouts. Generally I try to do at least 4 (most of the time 5) workouts per week, at least in a “normal” week when I am at uni or work. However, sometimes either life gets in the way or your body just feels weak already so you don’t want to go train. In this case, I like to rely on the fact that I walk a lot each day. I use the –> StepsApp <– to track how many steps I make per day. It is such a satisfying feeling to see how much you’ve actually moved that day. This is also how I like to keep fit while on holiday (read more here).

Next, let’s talk about what I do when I am at the gym. Usually I like to do high intensity cardio workouts (burn 100 calories in 5 minutes) first, and then i focus on working my abs, legs and butt. I do at least 10 minutes of planks changing from normal high plank into side plank and adding in twists and mountain climbers for even more stimulation. I also love to work my obliques with Russian twists (with a 5-10 kg weight), bicycles and candlelight dippers (with 1 kg). Then I usually do my legs, so either side leg lifts with 15 kg weights, the hip abductor machine (on which i stand squatting) with 70 kg or the cable machine with 25 kg on which I do side leg lifts, kickbacks and pulses. If I then still feel like working on my lower body even more, I’ll do some deadlifts with a 25 kg weight in my hands.

 

This is my typical workout plan which usually takes me 1 hour to do at the gym. However, I change up the exercises a bit so my body doesn’t get used to them. I also sometimes do my workout at home. In this case, I focus more on cardio workouts, planks and exercises I can do without much equipment. I especially love working out to videos by Rebecca Louise Fitness.

The most important thing though is that I don’t drag myself to the gym or to do a workout if I feel very weak and tired. I always respect and listen to my body and try to do everything so I feel better afterwards. That goes for fitness but also all (or most) other aspects of life.
