Exercising is generally a good thing, but we do not want to Over-train! What is over-training? When someone over trains they are basically exercising too much and they are not letting their body rest, which means the body can not repair itself. A great example is when you cut yourself and you body starts to heal itself. When we see a scab, we know the body is healing. If we keep scratching the scab off, it is not going to heal, so we have to just leave it alone. The same goes for our muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, etc. If we are working out six days per week, then you need to have at least one day of rest just for the body to rejuvenate. Sometimes having a day off or rest during the week is great thing too. To get more information about rest times, how many days to workout out, and split routines then start a fitness program and get into a Portland personal training routine.
If you are constantly slammed at work and in the back of your head you keep telling yourself you need to take care of your body, then what are you waiting for? The notion that hiring a Portland Oregon personal trainer for quick workout sessions is not weird, but it is an alternative to doing a full regular one hour or not doing anything. So for those who are settling for the old excuses of not having enough time, money or you are just too busy with work, then try a shorter duration session.
In the beginning, when working with a Portland personal trainer, the initial intensity will be set at your current fitness level, but the intensity will progress in order to keep improving and attaining positive fitness results. It will take a few weeks to start increasing the intensity, but your workouts will still be challenging during this transition period. This will be fun, exciting and most of all you will feel better about your health and that you are doing something about it.
