How to Create Your Own Exercise Program
Have you been trying to make your own exercise program but didn't
know where to start?
Creating an effective exercise program isn't as hard
you think, just follow these simple steps.
Create An Attainable Goal
The most important step to creating an effective exercise program is to know what
results you want before you begin. It sounds obvious, I know, but do yourself
a favor and have a specific goal in mind - it will make your efforts seem more
Write Down Your Exercise Goals
Whether your goal

your goals. If life is dragging you down, it's better to change your exercise
program than quit.
Change Your Exercise Program Often
If you start noticing that you're getting burned out, it's time for a change.
Don't be afraid to change your exercise program every six weeks. Mix it up and
add variety. Nobody can go full blast 100% of the time. You're not alone. Add
a new exercise to your program, and throw out the exercises that aren't producing
the results that you want.
