When beginning a new fitness routine, it is important to ease yourself into it. This will give your body time to become accustomed to it, and will lessen the chance of injuring yourself.

One basic tip for fitness is do not overtrain! Sometimes when you have a health or fitness goal you want to achieve, it is tempting to push yourself to your fullest capacity, but this is not healthy. Set regular achievable goals for yourself and results will be well within your reach.
While working out, always decrease the weight by approximately ten percent, when you adjust your grip. For example, if you just finished a set of bench presses doing 200 pounds with a medium grip, you should drop to 180 pounds when switching to a narrow or wide grip. When you switch grips, you are stressing the joints in a different way than you have become accustomed to, which can cause you to get injured.
When you run, you should build up more and more and go longer distances faster then when you previously started. One week out of every six, you should try and give your body a rest and chance to recuperate by running only half the half and distance the speed.
You can increase your endurance and speed, by training like a Kenyan. Kenyan runners train by starting the first part of the run at a slow and steady pace. You have to slowly increase your pace during your run. During the middle third, you should be running at a normal pace. By the last third of the run, you should be running at a fast pace. You can greatly increase both your speed and your endurance if you employ this technique regularly.
See, fitness is more than a competitive activity. It really can be any kind of activity you want it to be. Only professionals could buy and play with the equipment if it weren’t. You should feel a bit ready and better to create a routine, and use your new knowledge of the activity.
