6. You're doing too much too soon. Unfortunately, results don't happen overnight. It takes time and consistency to get in shape over the long haul. But how many of us decide that we're going to get in shape and then get totally gung-ho, spending hours at the gym only to find ourselves tired, sore and no thinner after a week or two? Get-Results Remedy: Be patient. Remember that you're creating a lifestyle change that you can sustain for the rest of your life. While there's tem
On 26th August 2016, CrossFit Shadow Valley (CSV) will be hosting a 24-hour charity Workout, in aide of Help for Hero’s and SANDS, with all donations being split on a 50/50 basis. Both are extremely worthwhile causes and deserve a huge amount of recognition and support for all of the hard work that they do. The workouts undertaken will be done so on a rolling basis during the 24-hour period, by 12 core athletes, each of which will need to raise a minimum of £100.00 in sponsor
5. You reward yourself with food. Do you allow yourself to have that extra piece of pizza or order that dessert when dining out because you "went to the gym" earlier? If so, you may be undoing all of that good calorie-burning with too many treats. Get-Results Remedy: Focus on how good exercise makes you feel rather than what it allows you to eat after; and choose foods that fuel your workouts, rather than the other way around. Enjoy your food and treat yourself every now and
Day 4. You're only doing cardio. (Most CrossFitter won’t have this problem) Yes, cardio is important for calorie burning, but a proper exercise plan includes cardio, strength training and flexibility. If you're just doing cardio, then you will be burning calories and strengthening your cardiovascular system, but you won't be really changing your body composition by building more muscle. For that you need strength/resistance training! If you are doing strength/resistance train
3. You haven't changed your diet. Exercise is awesome, but if you're not eating a nutritious diet with the appropriate number of calories and the correct nutrients your body needs, then you could be shooting yourself in the foot! Proper nutrition fuels your workouts, but eat too much, or too much of the wrong stuff, could result in weight gain. Eat too little, and you won't have enough energy to exercise, this could seriously affect your metabolic rate (resulting in plateaus
2. You're working too hard. Yes, you can actually work out too hard and too much. If you're someone who goes all out in every workout, or rarely to never takes a day off to rest, you could actually be breaking your muscles down instead of building them. If you always feel tired and sore, have unexplained headaches, insomnia or just a general lack of motivation and an inability to complete your workouts, you may be overtraining. Get-Results Remedy: Take three to five days off
Hi all, For the next 8 days I will be posting 8 reasons why your workout isn't working for you. Why you may not be getting the results you desire, or why you may feel you are just fighting a losing battle. 1. You're just not working hard enough. If you have been exercising consistently for several weeks, months or years, it's definitely time to increase the intensity and start pushing yourself. As you work out more and more, your body adapts and becomes more efficient at doin
