Muscle Confusion

By: Brian Dillon

The key to getting in shape it to workout everyday over a long period of time. Starting a new workout routine for a week and then stopping will not get you any results. Yet it seems like so many people commit to exercising but never follow through long enough to see results. Physical fitness does not happen overnight. It requires hard work and serious discipline. For even the most dedicated people developing good fitness habits is difficult. Luckily, home fitness videos provide a great way for beginners to develop good fitness habits.

Especially for those not used to exercising regularly it is hard to know where to start. There are so many options and programs out there to choose from. Should you do mostly cardio? If so, should you run? How often? If you want to get stronger should you lift weights? What moves should you do? When should you workout? It can be very daunting to create program for yourself with so many options. Even if you design your own program it is hard to know if it will get the results you are looking for. Also, how do you check to see if your making progress and that the workouts you have selected will continue to challenge you. For experienced gym goers designing a personal program may work well. But, often times beginners who design their own programs have a hard time sticking to them. They may go to the gym for a week or two but with one setback they will stop.

Other problems to staying committed is time and location. For some people driving to the gym can be bothersome enough to skip from time to time. Time is an important factor and the added time it takes to drive to the gym can stop some people from going when they should.

Expensive workout equipment can also pose a problem. Some people never get going because they don't want to spend the money on expensive home equipment. The truth is you don't need expensive machines to get in shape. The most important thing is dedication and discipline, and a machine won't give that to you. Perhaps the best way to get motivated is to hire a personal trainer. They will be by your side pushing you. And if you are paying a lot for a trainer you will be sure not to miss your appointment. The problem is that personal trainers are very expensive and some people like to have more privacy or flexibility in when then workout.

All you need to do is put in one of the DVD and just press play. There requires no more thinking or planning. Keeping things as simple as possible in the beginning is important. Once you learn what is like to do serious and diverse workouts for a sustained period of time, and you begin to feel real results continuing with you fitness habits will be easier.

The great thing is that Home Fitness Systems like the P90X workout can simulate having your very own personal trainer in your living room everyday. Not only that but a program like the P90X takes out all the guess work. While working out you are assured that literally millions of other people have done the same workouts and achieved great results. The people who made the P90X have done all the research you need to make sure you are getting the best program to reach your fitness goals.
