By undertaking regular exercises, you not only keep fat levels down and keep fit; it helps you keep lifestyle illnesses at bay. When you decide to get into an exercising regime, you need to have some goals. These will motivate you to keep going.
As you achieve one milestone after the other, you get used to the program. The best way to burn fat is by having a combination of anaerobic and aerobic exercises. The latter is aimed at turning fat into fuel for the body through the use of carbohydrates and oxygen. As for the former, carbohydrates are the main target.
Below is a list of exercises that you can use to burn extra fat and attain your ideal slim physique. They are easy to do just about anywhere.
• Jump rope skipping: Remember the stuff you used to do as a kid? If you are a lady, you probably remember skipping on a rope during playtime. As an adult, this is your chance to learn why rope skipping energized you at the time. Buy a skipping rope. Start by skipping on both legs then move to folding one leg and skip with the other. As you progress keep increasing the skipping rate. You will love and enjoy this.
• Squats: This is another simple yet highly effective exercise. You can safely do it at home. With your training kit on, place your hands at the back of your head and spread out the elbows almost parallel to your shoulders. Put your feet slightly apart. Start squatting slowly going as far as you feel the body is allowing you. Stay in that position for a while before standing up and repeating this several times. See whether you can be able to sustain the squat halfway until you feel the strain on your thigh or heel muscles.
• Stairs: You must have come across books, blogs or health shows that encourage people to use stairs instead of taking the lift. This article encourages you to do the same. Apart from walking on these stairs, you can also try running. However, you can only do this if you live in an apartment block. When going to work, this kind of running can make you sweat and spoil your neat office shirt or blouse. All the same, the point here is if you have access to a stairway, you can use it as your training ground. Climb up, down then up again up to four times. Keep increasing the rate as you get used to it.
• Push-ups: Push-ups are good for the hips and torso. You can also combine this with pull-ups. For a push up you need to ensure that you have placed your hands on the ground with the palms open. Spread your feet slightly. The rest of the body between the hands and feet should be aligned like a wooden plank. In this position, start lowering your body. Go down until your hips and chest are almost touching the ground’s surface. Push your body up and repeat the exercise for about 5-10 times.

If you're interested in online triathlon coaching as a means to help you progress in the sport and prepare for your next A-race, it's important to be very mindful with respect to who you hire as your tri coach.
Communication, experience, and level of interaction are just a few considerations when searching for online triathlon coaches who are right for you. In addition to these considerations, you ultimately need to pinpoint an individual who you feel comfortable with and who you trust in building your triathlon training plan.
To help guide you in your search for online triathlon coaching resources, below are three tips to steer you in the right direction.
There's a broad spectrum of triathlon coaches out there who operate online. Some provide very intimate coaching services with one-on-one Skyping, personalized training and nutrition planning, and high levels of engagement. Parallel to this premium quality caliber of coaching, some online tri coaches provide quick responses to their athletes' needs and questions.
Conversely, there are many online-based triathlon coaches who are less hands-on when it comes to communication and responsiveness. While cost often reflects this important consideration when seeking a coach, it's up to you to learn as much as you can about prospective triathlon coaches to find an individual who can cater to your needs throughout your training.
Before reaching out to prospective triathlon coaches, write-out a list of questions that cover the important aspects you're interested in or needing in a coach. Don't go overboard, as some high-level tri coaches don't have the time to nurture new athlete leads (as some elite coaches can pick and choose who they want to work with.) Rather, formulate 5 or so key questions that you want to cover before making an investment.
Here are a few example questions that you might want to consider adding to your list.
This list will serve as a vital tool in helping you seek out the best online triathlon coach who is right for you. The next step is seeking out prospective online triathlon coaches who fit your bill.
The first step to reaching-out to online triathlon coaches is to know what you're looking for. If you're doing an Ironman, you'll want narrow your search to Ironman triathlon coaches, whether that be through Google search or using online resources like Ironman's new CoachMatch network.
Also, ask around in your area for reference to both local and online triathlon coaching. In larger cities, there are often triathlon clubs, or clubs specific to swimming, biking, and running.
If you're doing a sprint triathlon, the level of training will be far less (depending on how competitive you plan to be during your race.) So you may find that your primary objective is to invest in a good training plan and get some guidance from time to time.
Inquire with 3-5 (or more) online tri coaches and shop around. You're putting a great deal of time and money into your training, so you'll want to find a triathlon coach who you're confident in.continue...
