During the festive period, most people put their training on hold. In this period strength, flexibility and aerobic performance are at risk of regressing and it’s common to see an increase in body weight caused by the typical abundance of food and a lack of physical activity. With this considered we have looked into the best methods of getting back into shape and eliminating some false certainties.
Firstly, don’t “stop eating!” significantly decreasing your food intake can have detrimental effects, due to the fact that it can stimulate a muscular loss.
Secondly, avoid excessive aerobic based training. Running for multiple hours isn’t necessarily the best method to reduce body weight, the more time you spend on cardiovascular equipment the less time you have available to perform resistance based exercises.
