Some Questions And Answers For Summer Fitness – Part 1

exercisingIf you are not looking forward to the summer and the clothing brevity it requires, then here are some summer fitness tips to help you get on your way to a fit and healthy summer weight:

Q1. How long does it take to build muscle?

A1. You have to be prepared to give it a sincere effort for a couple of months to see tangible results, no matter what the infomercials promise you. Consistent training with at least two sessions a week is a minimum.

Q2. How often should you exercise?

A2. For general health, 4 hours of exercise a week is good, but 6 hours is better. One day of rest is a necessity if you are a power lifter.

Q3. How can you burn fat?

A3. Trainers do tell us about the mythical “fat burning zone” but it really is different strokes for different folks. And fat burning is best done away from the gym and in the kitchen: reducing carbs, especially refined carbs is very important. And it is also important to persist and keep with the program. Remember, every little bit helps; even if it takes time!
