Singapore Personal Trainer: How A Good Training Program Keeps You On Track
When I give talks as a personal trainer in Singapore, many of the questions I am asked revolve around what exercise programs work. Or why a person's program is not getting them results. Here are 3 factors that will make your exercise program give you the results you want.
As a Singapore personal trainer, I have to design good programs to help my clients get the best possible results from their training.
Other questions are about why a person's program is not getting them results or results seem to stall.
Some people also feel lack of motivation if they don't progress. Thus, it is definitely in the interest of my customers if they get the best possible programs that allow them to quickly reach their fat loss and fitness goals.
Here are 3 factors that will make your exercise program give you the results you want no matter if its weight loss, fat loss, building muscle or getting better performance in sports.
This is a simple one. Your body is LAZY, it needs to be forced to get better. So you need to keep progressing in your training. Each training session you should improve, for example each session...run just a bit faster, rest just a little less, lift a little more weight, stretch just a bit further.
If you do not progress in your training do not expect your body to get better! In fact if you go to the gym and don't progress at least a little bit in one of these areas, go home and recover for an extra day! This will be better for you than "pushing" through and performing poorly.
There is a balance between progress and variation. You will need to do the same exercises for a while to see if you are progressing but when you try to progress, you will eventually get "stuck" because there is a limit to your body's ability to improve something.
When this happens, you need variation. Change the reps you use, do the exercise faster, do it slower, change the angle, change the position of your hands or feet. Keep the variations coming and the body will keep improving.
Finally, some people simply train too hard too often (If you are a fat guy sitting at a computer this is NOT you). This means that their body is not able to recover from training in time. For these guys, do what is known as a"de-load" period. This phase lasts from 4 days to two weeks and the client would lower the number of sets he does by 50%. This will allow the body to recover properly and continue progressing.
