Today, instead of giving you some kind of tangible moves and exercises that you are usually getting from various fitness websites, our team at MensMagazine reached out to some of the most successful fitness trainers across the globe and tried to glean some oblique yet rather useful professional tips that will actually get the job done.

It doesn’t matter if you are trying to lose weight, build muscle mass, or simply strengthen your body and sculpt your figure, these workout tips will definitely be worth checking out.

Don’t Fall Into A Rut, Mix Things Up

Imagine your brain doing the same task over and over again for weeks, even months. Yes, it will perfect the skills needed for the job, but your intellect won’t exactly see any progress.

The same goes for your muscles.

Here’s what Jill DeMarco of SLT (Strengthen Lengthen Tone) had to say about this:

“Our bodies are incredible at adapting, so much so that when you perform the same exercise repeatedly, your muscles adjust to make that exercise easier. Basically, your body is no longer being challenged to the same degree, and therefore has no reason to continue to develop strength.”

“Think about playing with tempo, resistance, or duration, and work to incorporate all the key elements of fitness into your training regimen: cardio, strength, endurance, flexibility, and balance.”

Exercising Is Not Just About Your Body

We are again comparing muscles to our brain mass. You need to find a proper workout plan that will exercise both your mind and your body.

According to Natalia Roberts, the instructor at ((305)) Fitness:

“[The most harmful misconception about getting into shape is] that looking better on the outside is the best part — it’s not! Of course getting fit and losing weight are important and huge motivators, but in my experience, mood and energy changes are the most immediate and gratifying part of getting into shape.”

“Being in shape helps you in every aspect of your life — it helps you sleep better, boosts your energy throughout the day, and puts you in a better mood. (Endorphins are a beautiful thing, right, Elle Woods?)”

Don’t Think Too Much About Your Self-Image

And for the wrap-up, we have a short one. Whatever you do, never underestimate the power and the ability of a human body.

“Our bodies can handle WAY more than we usually ask of ’em but our self-image can use a little pampering,” says Rob Sulaver, the founder of Bandana Training.
