Celebrity Trainer Jackie Warner has some great exercise tips. Here are a few of my favorite from her!
- Long, boring workouts aren't the best way to lose weight. "How long you work out isn't as important as how strong you work out," Warner says. You can get great results from a short (10- to 20-minute) high-intensity workout, making it easy to fit exercise into your busy schedule.
- Burning muscles mean you're working and you're going to have more tone, Warner says. If you're concerned about bulking up, go with lighter weights and higher repetitions, but make sure your muscles are on fire for the last five to 10 reps.
- Changing your workout music is just one of many simple ways to stay motivated, Warner says. Plus, studies show that listening to music during your workout can help you work harder and fight fatigue.
- Don't make weight loss your only goal. "My most successful clients are the ones that set specific fitness goals," Warner says. Find a race that you want to run, work toward doing 5 consecutive push-ups, or simply increase your speed on the treadmill by a certain amount each week.Music makes that workout better!
