The most unrealistic expectations people have when they work out every day is to think that in three weeks their physique will look dramatically different, Alayne Rowan, personal trainer and a fitness instructor, says.
“People who have muscles and are strong and fit have been working on their lifestyle and activities for a long time, and that is why they look a certain way,” she adds. “A lot of effort goes into being strong, athletic and seeing results.” But there are certain tricks you can incorporate into your routine to speed up the process.
One of them is to not exercise during every spare minute you have. The body needs recovery days to repair and rest. You won’t see instant results; in fact, you may cause the opposite effect in the long-term. “You probably do look better and feel better, but working out every day usually leads to burn-out and then the long term goal that the person wanted never is accomplished.”
Being active on daily basis is important but don’t stress the muscles. Light exercises will suffice.
