5 Reasons Why You Don’t See Results After 4 Weeks of Training

First, you need to change your way of eating.  Clean out your pantry and eliminate all food high in trans fat and sugar.  I always say to my clients, what is not good for you is not good for your family members either.  Good meals should take only 30 minutes to prepare.

If you are just getting started on an exercise program, first you need to know that it takes between 8-12 weeks to see a change in your body.

Next, you need to modify your training every week, for example:

  • Cardiovascular exercise: adding 5 minutes each week to your cardio exercise or add intensity to it. Later, we add inclination.
  • Strength training: you need to add 5% more weight each week.

To avoid reaching a plateau, change your program every month to challenge your nervous system, other muscles, work in different planes, and range of motion.

Finally, to stay alive with your exercise program, switch activities! For example, use the elliptical instead of the treadmill or go for a hike with your family instead of using always to same route for your walk.

Yesterday I was planting some flowers in […]
