My fitness plan-Top FAQ about true fitness
Hello guys, today we are going to talk about FAQ (frequently answered questions) about true fitness.
Here we got some questions to be answered, So here we go with the same.
What’s the difference between free weights and resistance machines, and which should I be using?
Free weights are the objects which are free to move between 3rd-dimensional space.
They are Dumbbells, Barbells, Ankle weight, Free body weight etc.
I guess I am sounding like some teacher in the class, So let me come in my form.
Well, this debate is never-ending. So which is best, free-weights or machines? I would assume that most of you reading this article are frequent users of free-weights and cable systems.
Let us talk about the free weight first,
Free weight “the traditional one for true fitness”, Free weights work on the tiny muscles but it works many at a time, you can’t just focus and hit the same muscle at the given moment as you are using free weight many of your muscles are working to keep the weight steady, Balance is needed, And the muscle you target is developed but at the same time other muscles are also working out which is a good thing.
As a beginner you won’t know how to use free weights properly but when you learn that you will end up working more on free weights rather than the machine.
Machines- Machines’ specificity isn’t always a bad thing, though. Say you want to work your quads, but you already did a set of squats and those stabilizing muscles in your hips and core are already fatigued. You can sit down on a leg extension or a leg press machine and work the quads alone. Bodybuilders will sometimes use machines at the end of a gym session to target specific muscles.
If you are beginner then I suggest you use machines first because you need time to learn some things the balance, the energy to work will be increased but slowly.
What are the main benefits of working with a personal trainer?
If you are planning to hire a personal trainer then it is really good, I suggest you go for it because if you have a personal trainer then you will surely get faster and better results, One thing I would like to tell you is that when you do systematic workout and have proper nutrition then you will achieve your true fitness results much faster, because personal trainers know what will fit you and what should be taken care of. Another thing most people have multiple goals, like fat loss and muscle gain at the same time. It is really hard to find the right balance between this 2 things. But your personal trainer will find the right exercise for your good health and faster results. And the most awesome thing about having a personal trainer is that you will reduce the chances of injury while doing the workout. And the next thing is that personal trainers will help you make true fitness a priority in your life.
Is walking or running better for fat loss?
Running improves heart and lung conditioning, burns excess fat, strengthens muscles, improves sleep, and can help overcome depression or other mental problems. A runner does not have to train for 26-mile marathons or try to sprint at Olympic speeds to benefit. All running, at any speed, is beneficial, but speed and length of run affect calorie and fat burning. Consult a doctor before starting any running program.
When your heart rate is high then you will be burning calories, and running or doing other cardio exercises can help fat loss but at the same time you have to maintain your diet program because of you are taking 3000 calories in a day and burning 1800 then you know what I mean.
How long should I rest between workouts?
Generally, weight-trained muscle requires 24 to 48 hours of rest between workouts. However, rest days vary with your training status, workout schedule and fitness goals. For example, novice weightlifters should begin a program with two to three strength-training sessions per week, as stated by the American College of Sports Medicine. Additionally, sessions should be completed on nonconsecutive days — providing one to two days of exercise-free days between sessions. Previously sedentary individuals might require additional rest days and should begin with two sessions per week on nonconsecutive days.
And for Advanced guys, it can be 48-48 hours as per your goals.
And never let that photos of ripped and big fitness models get into your head that you are working 7 days a week, rest is as much as important as your training.
Make it Sunday, and call it “Cheat day” Have whatever you want that day, pizza or pancake whatever you like and from Monday get into the discipline again if you are into true fitness.
Which diet is the best to follow?
Diets are to be followed as per your body needs, I have already posted a diet plan in my previous post you can visit that post for your diet plan. Click to find the diet chart as per your body needs
If I stop training will my muscles turn to fat?
Muscle cannot turn to fat. However, what is commonly experienced with former athletes is a decrease in training without a subsequent decrease in calories consumed. In other words, if you’ve been lifting weights regularly, you’ve built muscle, which in turn raises your metabolism. You’re performing exercise programs that in and of themselves burn calories. So if you were to stop exercising, the muscle will go away as there is no need or stimulus for it to stay.
It is much likely that you will gain fat because after stopping training your metabolism will decrease.
