In this article we will talk about how women can tone their bodies with three simple tips, and how in two steps they can start exercising again.
Mothers are women who dedicate themselves to their children without asking for anything in return. Mothers are women like all other women: they want to feel beautiful, fit and active. Women dream of having a young, toned body. Their bodies and strength are needed to sustain the pace that life imposes on them. For this reason it is important that women are able to embrace a healthy lifestyle, through wellness.
Women want to relieve every day stress, to feel good and to make those around them happy.
Women’s arms are strong. Cradling, rocking, pushing. They are resistant and never tire.
Women are active, busy and beautiful. They are women and mothers, partners, wives and friends.
They are women who for a particular period of their lives have less time to devote to themselves. They are concentrated on dedicating all their love and energy to someone else. We are all that someone else.
If the mother is happy the child will be too.
Therefore, a mother should never forget that she is also a woman; a relaxed, happy woman, even with her body.
Sometimes women find themselves spending long periods of time at home. A sedentary lifestyle is not ideal for your health, especially if associated with an unhealthy way of eating.
Lack of physical activity can mean:
- Loss of muscle tone
- Weight gain
So the solution is to dedicate a few minutes to yourself. You can stay fit without necessarily leaving the house. A few minutes of physical exercise is enough. Toning up, relieving stress and staying fit is easier than you think.
Three tips to tone your body and achieve Wellness
Sedentary women lose overall muscle tone and accumulate fat. This happens mainly in the lower parts of the body such as the legs, buttocks and hips.
So here are five tips to stay focused on your ultimate goal. Make sure that you follow the advice.
- Take one step at a time
To improve our physical appearance we need to do two things:
- eat well
- physical activity
Exercise will burn fat and tone and strengthen muscles.
You have to work on your muscles. Increase the weights progressively. Always exercise with the same weights. This allows the body to get used to the exercise.
Whereas gradually increasing the weights allows us to:
- concentrate more on the exercise
- be more motivated to do it
Don’t boast about improvements. Take notes. Write down daily progress, go back and read your notes when you are having difficulties.
Working out at home is a great way to start toning up.
Practice by simply using the natural weight of your body or by using specific equipment for training at home. In addition to helping to tone the whole body, working out at home will increase self-esteem. Self-esteem for women means being more physically and socially confident.
Choose a suitable activity that you really like
Consistency is the key that will allow you to obtain the desired results in the long term.
Choosing a fun workout helps motivation. Do it with pleasure and enthusiasm.
A well-toned body should be a priority. Women’s bodies require a regular training routine. It’s the only way to achieve and maintain lasting results.
Women should know about the advantages to be derived from good, regular workouts to ensure the correct carrying out of both the exercises and the programmes, and in order to be aware of the effects of a workout on the body.
Improvements derived from regular exercise.
Cardiovascular system: regular workouts improve the resistance and efficiency of the heart. This will allow you to exercise more for longer periods and burn more calories.
Muscles and the skeletal system: developing muscle mass increases our basic metabolic rate. Muscles are more active metabolically than fat. Well-developed muscles burn more calories even when at rest. This ensures better muscle tone and improved posture.
Increasing lean body mass and bone density means that muscles and bones get stronger. Flexibility and resistance are also improved. This reduces the risk of osteoporosis and loss of muscle tissue with ageing.
Metabolic system and muscle mass: physical exercise helps burn fat and increases muscle mass. When muscles are metabolically active more calories are burnt. You will also lose body fat gradually and the body will become more toned and lean.
Is there an ideal exercise programme for a toned body?
The best workout is composed of:
- Cardio: aerobic exercise is the key to being fit. Tone the whole body while having fun. Running, walking and swimming stimulate large muscle groups in a rhythmic manner. Exercising moderately allows you to train for long periods of time;
- Strength: muscle tone can be achieved by using different types of equipment. The exercises should focus on the main muscle groups (chest, back and legs). Free weights are very useful for reinforcing and strengthening arm and back muscles;
- Flexibility: stretching after the workout prevents pain and tight muscles. It is important to stretch all the muscles that are used in the exercises well. Doing targeted stretching exercises provides numerous benefits: more mobile joints, lengthened muscles, reduction in the risk of injury and improvement of posture.
Carried out in this order the exercises ensure the best possible training programme. In fact, a cardio workout gently activates all our muscles. Strengthening exercises tone and stretching lengthens.
Alternating aerobic exercises with strength training means optimizing both the time and the results of each workout:
- 5/10 minutes walking or running with MYRUN
- 1 or 2 sets of exercises using the Wellness Bag elastic bands or handles
Getting back to being active gradually will bring a series of aesthetic benefits. It will also improve your health and mood. Daily tasks will be easier to do.
