According to a list of tips made by nutritionists and celebrity coaches, the simplest mistakes we make at the gym, that we actually consider harmless, are probably the most harmful in our fight against extra weight and centimeters.

Myth: The days when you don’t go to the gym are lost

Truth: Days dedicated to rest and sleep support a healthy weight loss

Rest is very important for your muscles, your nervous system, your brain and your body, but also for weight loss. Whenever you feel like you exaggerated with your training you should give your body time to fully recover, to be stronger and to support your metabolism for future training. If you work out very day, when will your body take time to recover?

If you sleep enough your muscles can recover after a strenuous workout, helping you improve your basal metabolic rate (the number of calories you burn in a day). Your metabolism needs to be pushed to use consumed foods to produce energy. Workouts are a very effective way to do that. To function at your best parameters, you need to rest sufficiently, which means you need to take a few days off from the gym.

Solution: Don’t work out seven days a week. Try to set certain days for training and plan your session from Monday to Friday, never in the weekend. You will also lose your motivation quickly if you go to the gym every day.

Make sure you get enough sleep. Our bodies work in tune with the sun. We need to sleep less in the summer, between 6 and 7 hours per night, and more in the winter, at least 7 hours per night.

If you’re having trouble sleeping, Isagenix Australia comes to the rescue with its Brain and Sleep Support System. We often overlook the importance of rest in the fast paced world we are living in. That’s why we need to complement our lifestyle with specific products. Brain Boost and Renewal is a great product that supports the cerebral blood flow, the production of healthy brain chemicals and promotes mental focus and concentration. Sleep Support and Renewal improves the quality and time of sleep and reduces the necessary time to fall asleep promoting healthy aging, brain health cardiovascular and immune functions.

These two products from Isagenix Australia work together and should be taken as so, to ensure a healthy brain aging and a restful night’s sleep.

Myth: If a workout is effective, don’t change it

Truth: For best results, it’s advised to vary, as much as possible, the exercise from your training program

Your body is always seeking the easiest way to perform a task. If you do the same exercises every time you work out, your body will work less, until it stops having any results. Mix up your training program for long-term results.

Solution: As soon as you find a workout simple to do, change it. However, if alternate training is an excuse not to do sports at all, then don’t change it.
