How to choose your favorite type of workout out of the different types of workout routines?
Decide a Fitness Goal
The first thing to do before choosing your best types of workouts is identifying your fitness goal. Ask yourself: Why do you want to stay fit, is it ? To lose fat? To to gain weight? To to get flexible? Or to stay healthy or to build stamina and get athletic? Deciding a fitness goal is very important to keep you consistent and choose your favourite workout routine and its programming accordingly.
For example: If you want to lose fat, strength training should be your priority. So, it is better to join a gym to lift weights or perform strength building exercises or some bodyweight exercises to do at home which can help you build muscle.
Similarly, if you want to get more flexible, then regimes like yoga and gymnastics might be effective for you. To build stamina, a crossfit programming will be helpful. To get athletic, an overall programming consisting of different types of workout routines with a mix of all, will be effective to get your body adapted to certain exercises with skill learning as well.
If your goal is to de-stress and get social, joining a zumba class will be one of the best sources of getting fit while having fun! If you want to build explosive and bodyweight strength, then learning some calisthenics, track workouts consisting of agility and hurdles is going to be extremely helpful to you. So, ask yourself what is your goal and what would you enjoy the most out of all? Then accordingly, choose your workout type.
Take care of Sustainability & Accessibility
After deciding your fitness goal, another thing to take care of is sustainability and accessibility in your fitness journey while choosing your favorite exercise regime. Fitness goals are there to help you build yourself through your workout type accordingly. However, having sustainable approaches help you stay consistent and disciplined.
For an instance, if you are joining a gym which is way too far from your place it will be good for you for the first 2 weeks, after that you might start getting off track due to extra distance. Join a class which is easy for you to stay consistent with, otherwise build a stronger mindset to cover the distance every day or switch to some home workouts with limited equipment. That’s what sustainable approach is all about.
An approach can help you stay on track without any obstacles and give you a workout routine which you can enjoy according to your space, equipment accessibility and as per your goals. You don’t need to rely on gyms alone or limited schedules to help you get fit.
There are different types of exercises to do at home which can also give you amazing effect as well.
