It can be quite unfair when you devote yourself to a healthy exercise routine but see no results. It could be either because you are not working hard enough or you are not doing these exercises the right way. Matters to do with physical fitness requires you to be patient and put in a lot of work. This is to say that consistency should always be your goal. Never go a day without assessing yourself. Get to know how you have been doing so far. If you are a bit on the downside, you need to pull yourself together and work towards your goal. Here are a few suggestions to have your exercises work for you.

Be consistent

Though it will not always be sunshine and rainbows with hopping bunnies on the field, at the end of the day, it is worth it.

Still, on the consistency factor, check yourself and get to know what exactly seems to be bringing you down. As soon as you get to the root of the problem, work towards it and ensure that it never becomes a hindrance to you ever again. Have a goal that will always motivate you even when you are not up for it. Write it down on a piece of paper and put it where it is easy to access it.

Watch your diet

Becoming lean does not involve you starving yourself to attain it. Eat what is sufficient for you when you are hungry. When you feel full, stop in your tracks, don’t force yourself. Forcing extra food down your throat will only weaken the effect of the exercises you are doing. Put them all together, and you will see that it won’t be long before the results begin to reflect. Also, what is more, important is the content of your diet. What’s on your plate will affect your chances of becoming lean either negatively or positively. Eat healthy foods in all the right amounts.
