Strength training: For building strength, you need to set defined goals and be patient. Sticking to plan consistently is the key to strengthen the body. Motivation is required at all parts of training as well. You will feel like greedy for food sometimes and also feel lazy to start the workout. But keeping a mixed form of workout in the plan can keep up the motivation. A good relaxing cold water or ice bath may be very helpful sometimes to reload the muscles or a sauna also can help to relax after a hectic week.

Changes are essential: Keep changing the workout. Switch to heavyweight exercises sometimes and stretching exercises at other. The body must never get adapted to the kind of training done daily. If the routine of training gets boring the strength gain also gets diminishing.

Concentrate on fat loss: Eating the right type of food with nutrition in check will keep fat intake in control. Performing intense cardio training and weight training also helps in losing fat if done with nutrition check. Keep the carbohydrate intake in check also as these cause store fat in the body. Cardio for first 20 minutes burns carbohydrates for energy and for more than 20 minutes continuously will start burning stored fat. Thus it is very important while planning the training schedule as per body type.
