Tips for Developing Lean & Strong Muscles

Have you found yourself spending far too much time on the couch staring at a screen? No doubt you feel lethargic, fatigued and quite possibly a bit depressed. Inactivity leads to muscle atrophy which can cause a host of problems not limited to weight gain, high blood pressure, fatigue and many more. Make a commitment to return, or begin a healthy lifestyle. You owe it to yourself. It’s no wonder you’re quite possibly overwhelmed by the whole process given the constant barrage of health and wellness advice from just about every major media outlet. Forget all the noise, focus on yourself and your individual needs. Follow these simple, sound recommendations from health and wellness professionals to jump start your new healthy lifestyle.

Set personal goals, but avoid the temptation to make them all about weight loss. Weight loss is a bi-product of healthy living. Focus on building strong and lean muscles. As you ramp up your muscle strength, you’ll also be increasing your metabolism. This will give your increased strength, energy and will actually accelerate weight loss given the rise in your resting metabolic rate.

Take advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and invest in a pair of quality athletic shoes from Puma. Your feet will thank you! Plan on spending at least thirty minutes every day enjoying cardio training and twenty minutes every other day building and stretching muscle groups.

Don’t sabotage your new found exercise regime with poor eating choices.  Think both quality and quantity when making food choices. The single greatest gift you can give yourself is the elimination of fast food meals and sugary sodas from your diet.  Excess sodium and copious amounts of sugar are responsible for many of the issues that landed you on the couch in the first place. Otherwise, take small steps in changing your diet and food choices. Gradual changes will result in sustainable changes. Best of luck on your new journey towards a life of health and wellness!
