The countdown to summer is ON! It’s time to set your goals for the summer and getting stronger should be at the forefront of them all. Whether you’re backpacking across Europe or playing sports with your kids, you need to be at your strongest. You’re probably thinking to yourself, ‘well, where do I begin?’. Our answer is 5 words: exercise, weights, food, rest and Slendertone.
Switch on that active mindset. It’s time to be the strongest you. Whether you like pushups, squats, planks or going for a walk, you’re exercising your body which will ultimately make you stronger. Fancy supercharging your workout? Add your Evolve Abs while you do light cardio or HIIT workouts to get the most out of your exercise session.
Adding weights to your exercise routine leads to stronger muscles and bones and a healthier heart. Weight training is also a great way of burning fat. Muscle tissue burns more calories than fat tissue does, so when you build muscle, you are also burning calories, which makes those strong muscles show. Start weight training by lifting light weights, and as you get stronger you can incorporate heavier weights. It is important to challenge yourself while also lifting a safe amount.
Fuel your body with food, more specifically, protein, carbs and healthy fats. What you eat largely determines how much fat you carry on your body. If you don’t have enough protein, for example chicken or eggs, then your body won’t be able to build and repair muscles. Foods high in carbohydrates like brown rice, beans and vegetables give you the energy needed for those workout sessions to get stronger. Don’t forget about those fatty foods that are good for you. Foods like cheese, avocado and salmon are filled with healthy fats that will give you energy and support muscle strength.

Rest is essential for muscles to recover and grow. Exercise leads to microscopic tears in your muscle tissue. However, when you rest, your cells repair these tears. This helps your muscle to heal, grow and overall become stronger. It is recommended to work out only 5 days a week, in order to give your body a chance to rest.
