Mistakes beginners to play sports
From time to time, everyone has a thought and even a desire to start playing sports, move more, lose those extra pounds, regain their former forms or build muscle. You even buy a gym membership or promise yourself to start running from Monday. But for some reason, further 2-3 lessons can not do sports. Let’s try to figure out where and what mistakes we make.
Need a goal
You decided to do, for example, jogging. Why do you want to run? For what? The main criteria for setting goals should be as follows: the goal should be measurable, controllable to you, realistic (the assessment of the realisticness of the goal comes with time), the deadline for achieving the goal is determined.
Option: I run 30 minutes a day three times a week, shed 100 grams a day and in two months I lose 2.5 kilograms of weight!
First, I will buy myself a new suit, sneakers, socks, pants …
There is such an ambush that the start of the first run / workout is postponed until you buy everything you need. In turn, at the time of purchase, many factors also influence: money can run out, the store may not have favorite color t-shirts … In short, you want to play sports – put what you have at the moment and go!
It is very important to start first, and then everything else.
Regular transfer of training to tomorrow
What can I say, “just do it!”. We decided that it means that at the precisely designated time we start to run, if you give yourself some concessions, then you will still be at the same level of physical fitness. If you have a great desire to postpone for tomorrow, then “write out” yourself a fine for an uncomfortable amount, which you will then spend on charity, or argue with someone that you will do it anyway.
Maximum display at the first training session
Most likely, this is already familiar to you, half a year, a year did not run, then went out into the street and immediately run five kilometers, four of which will be completed on foot. In general, the first workout can be in the form of a normal walk around the house, and over time, it is necessary to increase the distance and run time. The same goes for swinging the press or exercising on simulators. Start small to get pleasure, rather than strength, from the first sports activities.
It is very important at the initial stage to run regularly, for at least three weeks, until the skill of running is built into the brain. The most important thing to accustom the body to the running schedule. Do not despair if 1-2 times missed training for reasons beyond your control, just follow the regular runs. Surely you know that it takes 21 days to develop a habit. Hold on this time, then you will see the first results, and the habit will begin to show.
So the main thing is to start. You will succeed!
