Consistency Over Intensity

Many people believe that the more intense and difficult your workouts are in your fitness regimen, the better. It’s a common misconception that all you need to get fit is intense workouts. While intense workouts are great for raising your heart rate, they aren’t the best way to lose weight or maintain muscle if you don’t do it consistently.

Consistency is the key when it comes to working out. Intensity is great for short-term results but eventually, everything tapers off if there’s no regularity or frequency behind what you’re doing. Don’t try and kill yourself in your first few workouts thinking that you will get results faster because it just isn’t true. You need to be consistent with your workout regimen and after time, you will see results.  

So why is consistency better? 

Well, for one thing, it helps build a routine which in turn becomes more manageable and satisfying. Also, you can’t always be giving 110% of your time and energy, as you will easily get burnt out, but if you’re able to give the same amount every day, week, month, and year it will eventually add up. The more you do something consistently, the better your brain will remember that action and want to repeat it in future situations.

When we talk about consistency, this does not mean that you should work out every day or even three times per week; rather it means that the intensity of your workout sessions needs to remain at the same level over time. The best approach is one simple change at a time so you can maintain focus and avoid burnout! For example, try doing just one more set of an exercise each week until you are able to do 3 sets with minimal rest between exercises. Once this becomes easy, increase intensity by adding weight or reps instead of switching up what muscles need attention. You’ll be amazed at how much progress you make without getting bored.

It’s important to always push yourself but don’t overdo it or else you won’t want to work out anymore and consistency will be thrown out of the window.
