Workout and exercise are hard to do and endure
because they often involve weights
and repetitions of routines.
A good session lasts at least half an hour
and it's strenuous, time-consuming and tiring.
You get sweaty and messy all over
and you get tired and stressed and suffering some pains.
There is also the possibility of injuries
to your muscles and joints if not done properly.
Many are eager to lose weight or get a toned and fit body
but only few survive.
Doing it in the gym along with some members
can help boost your determination to exercise and workout.
It's not the same when you do it alone
because you get bored easily without some company.
Working out and exercise can be done at home
if you have the equipments like dumb bells, barbells,
kettle bells, balls, ropes, tread mills, bikes, etc.
and even without them,
you can still execute your routines
by using your very own body weight
just like doing push-ups, squats, jogging and walking.
You don't need a big space to execute the routines
but if you want,
do them in sports centers or open fields
where there's plenty of space.
Workout and exercise take time to see results
so you have to be patient.
But if you can't help being impatient,
speed up the results by sporting a healthy diet
of vegetables and fruits and avoiding fatty foods.
Sporting a healthy diet is another hard endeavor
and it's even harder than doing the routines
because you can't just stay away that easy
from fried foods, junk foods and fast foods.
You can't just snob ice cream and chocolates.
A little rice or no rice at all every meal won't satisfy you,
and it may even make you suffer the hunger.
But as gym-fit guys and health buffs say,
"no pain, no gain" or no suffering, no results.
So if your goals are ripped abs, isolated biceps and triceps
and strong, defined legs, do them all and endure.
Hold on to these goals for as long as you live
and you'll achieve them.
And don't forget to listen to your favorite music
while doing your routines.
Music that's fast or upbeat or tracks that make you wanna dance.
It helps a lot to get you going.
Don't listen to ballads or love songs or some jazzy beats
because they don't energize and uplift you.
Instead, they make you gloomy and sad.
And before I forget,
drink plenty of water because
you're losing body fluids during routines.
But never drink cold water. Period.
Only drink warm to hot water that you can tolerate
so it doesn't harm the tissues in your throat and esophagus.
We humans are warm-blooded so we have to keep it that way.
Cold water disrupts the processes going on in our bodies
like when you drink it during or right after exercise.
So avoid cold water or other cold beverages.
It could be fatal.
There were some who drank cold water
during or right after playing basketball
who collapsed and never recovered.
