You’re a go-getter, and you work out because you want results, but tacking on extra workouts during the week could actually be hurting your results. Trainer Adam Rosante, founder of The People’s Bootcamp in New York, has some strong thoughts on the subject. Adam shares, “Working out six or seven days a week doesn’t allow enough time for rest and recovery, which is one of the crucial elements of fitness.” And he’s right – overdoing it in terms of time spent at the gym can actually keep you from the changes you’re working for.

“You always have to remember that when you’re working out, you’re not actually building muscle, you’re tearing it down,” Rosante says. “It’s in those recovery periods that the recovery and reparation happens and hotness occurs.”

While you can still stretch and stay active during a day off, Adam believes that adding on more days of intense workouts is not the way to lose weight or gain muscle. Instead, Adam recommends splitting up your routine into sections of two or three days, making sure to schedule rest days in between. “Five days a week allows the flexibility for you to stay on program and also keep those rest periods nice so your body can recover.” So if you’re looking to achieve ultimate hotness, kick back, relax, and take a day off.

The following post was written by Coco B. who blogs at Running With Perseverance and is part of POPSUGAR Select Fitness.

I’ve been running for almost 15 years, but until a few weeks ago I had done all of my speed workouts on the treadmill. Even though every training plan I’ve ever seen includes track workouts, I was too intimated by the terminology and too unsure of what to do to give it a try. I recently joined a running group that meets for weekly track workouts, so I finally had someone who could explain it all to me. Now that I’ve figured it out, I am excited to be able to take my speed workout outside.

If you are mystified by track workouts, here are some basics to get you started.

What the Numbers Mean

A track workout may be written out something like this:

6 x 400, 200 recovery 
or
4 x 800, 400 recovery  
or
3 x 1600, 600 recovery (or some combination of these and other variations)

To understand what this all means, it helps to keep in mind that one lap around a standard track is 400 meters (and four times around a track is equal to one mile). So, the first workout listed above is running fast for one lap around the track and then recovering for 1/2 lap before doing it again, for a total of six times.

Some plans will give you a target pace for each type of workout (based on a recent race finish time), while others are more loosely based on what would be your 5K pace, your 10K pace, etc. The important thing to keep in mind is that the longer the distance you are tasked at running fast, the slower your pace should be and also the longer your recovery should be. 

The Workout

When you get to the track, the first thing you should do is warm up. I like to start with a one-mile warmup (four easy laps around the track) and then spend a few minutes stretching. Before you start a speed workout, it also can be a good idea to do a few “striders,” which is a fancy name for short sprints, such as sprinting the length of one straight segment of the track. 

Once you are warmed up, it’s time to knock out your speed workout. It shouldn’t be easy, but if you have a hard time recovering for the next repeat, you might need to adjust your pace. And, if you feel any twinges that don’t disappear after a few steps, it’s probably a good idea to stop to make sure you aren’t on the verge of injury.

When you have done all of your repeats, you should run a few easy laps to cool down. Then you can finish your workout with some stretches and maybe even a few planks to strengthen your core. 

Running Faster Outside  

The first few times I ran at the track, I was surprised at how fast my pace was. Even though I feel like I push myself on the treadmill, I never would have set the treadmill speed that high. I think running naturally - without the forced mechanics of the treadmill belt - helps me feel more comfortable asking my body to go faster, and the fresh air and scenery at the track makes it that much more enjoyable.

Do you do speed workouts at the track? 

How are you taking your workouts outside?

If you happen to be hunting to shed bodyweight, slicing again on carbs can be component of an powerful approach. For people who want to drop a number of kilos, Manhattan-based nutritionist and registered dietitian Shira Lenchewski recommends that the carb-heaviest food ought to be breakfast, “trending more compact as the working day goes on” – and this plan does just that.

Most low-carb programs advocate consuming in between 50 and one hundred fifty grams of carbs for every working day, and this working day of consuming falls on the reduced end of spectrum with 64.two grams of carbohydrates, 1,236 calories, and a whopping 98 grams of protein. Try out it out for by yourself one particular working day this week!
