What Your Trainer Isn’t Telling You

In most gyms in India, we are used to seeing well-built trainers passionate about working out and ensuring that their clients are ready to work hard and get the body they want. But while they have our best interests at heart, sometimes these well-intentioned young instructors omit to mention certain exercise basics that everyone must know about.

To look lean, forget the machines: A gym instructor who tells you to stay away from the machines, will have to look for another job soon. Which is why gyms are museums of some pretty useless high-tech machines. There’s nothing that a good sprint, or good home workout can’t take care off. In fact, to build lean muscle mass, and get stronger, bodyweights are more crucial than heavy isolated weight workouts.

Mix it up: In all probability your gym trainer asks you to follow a set list of workouts for six days of the week. And his horror when you break the rules and mix it up, knows no bounds. Try it and we guarantee you will have three instructors at the least, swarming around and trying to talk you out of it. But mixing it up, trying new things, and randomising workouts are important for weight loss, not to mention, to fight boredom. If you don’t mix it up, you will either leave the gym because of the boredom or not get the desired results.  

Take cardio outside the gym: While most gyms instruct you to come six times a week and run on the treadmill alternating between weights and cardio, not too many will tell you to try other forms of cardio outside the gym. But do try running outside, cycling to new destinations, or taking up a high intensity cardio sport. This not only ups your intensity, but simulates do or die situations, which prompt you to work harder than you would inside a gym.

Look outside the gym: An instructor who tells you this most certainly doesn’t want to work there for much longer. But with all the various fitness trends doing the rounds like power yoga, body combat,  etc. do you really need the gym? If you are enjoying it, continue, but if you are bored or fatigued with the same routine, it’s time to step out.

Don’t spend hours at the gym: It’s best to go, finish a routine of some heavy weights, do some functional movements, and leave. Instead of spending hours doing isolation exercises, if you can finish your workout in 45 minutes working out the core and the full body, you can have a complete workout that will leave you regenerated instead of ruined.

I totally agree with this. I mean, what is the need of a gym while the workouts in a lap of nature are waiting for you?
