Need Super Motivation to lose weight? It Is Yours With Self Hypnosis CD's
If you have made the difficult decision to lose weight - congratulations! For many people, making a pledge to their own fitness is the most difficult part. But in spite of self-motivation, many people realize they do not know what exercises to incorporate to remove those extra inches.
There are three major types of exercise: aerobic exercise, such as skipping rope; flexibility exercises, like yoga and other forms of stretching; and strength training, such as bodybuilding.
Aerobic and strength training will help you burn the most calories. Because the loss of inches is dependent on either burning more calories or consuming less, it is best to concentrate on these initially to make sure your self motivation continues as you lose weight.
Generally, 30 minutes of aerobic exercise three times a week is best. Build the interval and frequency as you improve.
But many people whose self-motivation has encouraged them to begin an exercise program to lose weight neglect the importance of strength training. Aerobic exercise burns more calories in the beginning, but lifting weights increases muscle mass, and muscle burns more calories than fat. A pound of muscle uses 35 calories per day to function at rest; a pound of fat uses only two calories for the same function.
The fitness consensus used to suggest that to "build" muscle, you should do fewer reps (3-5) at higher weights, and to simply "tone," higher reps (12-15) at lower weights was best. But there's no such thing as "toning." Definition that comes with what's wrongly called toning happens because you have lost the layer of fat on top of the muscle, making the muscle more visible. The size of the muscle underneath depends on how strenuously you train to lose weight.
You must "tear down" the muscle so it can rebuild itself afterward. In fact, you do not build muscle during workouts but you do in the days afterward when it is "resting." The common rule for strength training is beginning with three sets of 8-12 reps at a weight that leaves you almost incapable of completing the entire set. Then, rest for 30-60 seconds before beginning your next set.
Don't be discouraged if you're not able to do all of the reps on every set. In fact, use that to determine when to add weight. If you're finishing each set without any muscle strain, you will want to add weight.
Self-motivation compelled you to begin your routine, but many people have trouble sustaining the pace to lose weight. It helps understanding that the source of our motivations is a belief. Think about it: If you did not believe the gnawing sensation in your stomach meant you were hungry, you would not feel motivated to eat.
Understanding what ideas motivate you is essential to taking off those pounds, because when you feel powerfully motivated, you will exercise regularly. NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) is a form of self hypnosis. And there are NLP techniques that can build exercise motivation because, over time, desire to exercise to lose pounds alone probably will not be enough to keep you working out. Hypnosis for exercise motivation therapy can help.
Your primary task is naming the most important things in your life. We call these things your highly valued criteria. Highly valued criteria are usually intangibles: money would not be highly valued criteria, but the freedom, fun, or security that money can buy would be.
Next, determine what you need to believe to feel highly motivated to exercise. It is necessary to remember that logic has nothing to do with belief. Things do not have to be logical to believe them. You may realize you already have a belief that goes against this new idea. That’s okay.
While understanding what motivates us is important, hypnosis for exercise motivation can put these ideas to work by ensuring self motivation persists. Hypnosis for motivation does this by modifying the computer codes in your brain, so you believe ideas that motivate you.
Belief systems are based in our unconscious mind, which is like a computer. Computers do not have the power to reason. The input controls the output. The techniques used in exercise hypnosis motivation therapy can make you believe almost anything, as long as you're willing to believe.
You start by making a picture in your mind that illustrates something you already believe, like, "I love my children." Then you learn to calibrate the elements or 'Submodalities' of that mental belief picture.
Next, you make a mental picture that illustrates your motivational idea. Let's say your motivational idea is, "If I exercise, then I will look great and my marriage will get better." Then you learn how to alter the Submodalities of this mental image to correspond with the Submodalities in your calibrated belief picture. On the other hand, if a belief is holding you back, the same technique can change that belief to doubt.
Hypnosis for motivation that incorporates NLP can provide you with something of an internal personal motivator. Using an exercise hypnosis motivation program ensures that the fervor you began with persists until reaching your objective, and then helps you maintain that objective.
