If your goal is to lose weight and maintain optimal health and fitness, the quality of your exercise and diet regimen matters more than the quantity, research says. Exercise scientists have reported the clear benefits of a multi-dimensional exercise regimen that includes resistance exercise, interval sprint exercise, stretching and endurance exercise. (Sound familiar? Hint- that's what we do at Motivate Fitness) In their study, scientists found that those who had followed the multidimensional regimen and consumed 60 grams daily of whey protein showed the greatest health improvements, including the greatest reductions in total body weight total abdominal fat mass waist circumference blood glucose. In addition, this group experienced the greatest increase in percentage of lean body mass. Therefore, by adding moderate amounts of protein regularly throughout your day, and you'll be well on your way toward decreasing total and abdominal fat, increasing lean body mass, and achieving optimal levels for blood pressure, blood glucose, and insulin. So here's what you need to do:
Don't worry so much about doing more exercises rather focus on doing the appropriate range of exercises and activities that most effectively promote health and fitness.
Make sure your routine includes resistance, endurance and interval training as well as your stretching.
