Benchmarking your health


You never know where you are going if you do not put it at a point of reference from where you started and you know where you are today. Therefore, it is important to make sure you know where you are today so that you can make plans for tomorrow.

There is truth in these statements, but it is important for you to make sure you follow certain numbers and not just weight on the scale, but I have run on some people in the last few days who are not sure whether they are moving forward or not.

A benchmark that you can use is BMI

A girl I know he says he is staying in a five pound series and started working outside a few weeks ago and says he is at the high end of the five pounds of the series.

The other person was watching the X-Weighted TV show and wanted to know exactly what they were doing at the start of the show.

So, here are some things you need to consider today that will help you benchmark your goals.

Most people who try to change their habits and get better have some things they care about, weight, food intake, strength, flexibility and fitness.

So when you start or even start today, you need to start a calendar or magazine where you can make weekly updates of some things to find out where you are today and tomorrow.

Weight gain and weight loss

Pretty easy here, you have to weigh yourself once a week and see where you are. This for me is just one thing to keep in mind when measuring your physical condition.

Of course the weight will change over time sometimes the muscles will go up or down and sometimes fat levels will go up or fall. So, the important thing to look at with your weight is that when it changes, you have to be associated with food intake and the types of exercise you do.

Food intake – How, how often, and what kinds of food

Food labeling is something that every single of your own great diet from Zone Zone, Jenny Craig and Weight Watchers you all have. It is important to know from day to day what you eat and why. If you monitor food intake, then you can tell where your weaknesses are and always be able to look back to see what you did bad and good in the past.

The best things to keep in mind are long-term nutrients. Check how much protein, carbohydrates, fats you get and how they are related to each other. How often do you eat and when during the day you eat is also very important reference points for both now and the future. This is best done on a daily basis and an application like MyFitnessPal is a great way to get started with it.

Strength – How much you can lift, push, or pull

Power is a very easy to measure stat. Find a number of exercises you can do. You can easily do things like the number of squats, crises, spawning or calf growth.

If you have the weights you have, then you have a huge range, you can make bench presses, bicep curls, tricep extensions, and many other weight-bearing exercises.

There are two ways to monitor. The number of iterations you can make at a certain weight, or the amount you can make for 10 reps. For me, there is no difference in these two types of benchmarking and you can do one or the other or mix them. If you work on a regular basis then your strength and muscle mass will increase. This affects your weight as well.

Flexibility – Improving travel through life

Flexibility is one of the things that no one seems to care about, but it is extremely important for your general physical condition and lifestyle.

Having flexibility is difficult to try at times so this is just a single repeat and see where you are.

Some examples of flexibility are the extension of your calves down and see how far you can stretch your calves, which also stretch one side and the other on your hips and forward to see how far you can reach to touch toes of your feet. If you do not exercise a lot and then jump right to it, your muscles will squeeze and for a short time your flexibility will suck, do not worry, your flexibility will get much better over time

Fitness Stamina – Moving faster while holding your breath

Physical endurance is another easy-to-follow set of exercises. How fast can you go a mile, run or walk? How long can you stand on a foot? if you are at the top of a pushup how long can you stay up? How many miles can you bikes in an hour?

You have to start watching the changes in your life if you have not already begun to do it. Would not you like to know in a month or a year or five years how much better your resistance has done?

You also have bad days as well as good days and in these bad days you should be able to look back and see that you are doing great and getting yourself back.

So today, tonight or even tomorrow make sure you've done some of these tests for the first time to have a starting point. After doing all of these tests a few times in the next few weeks and months, you will find out what is an excellent tool that compares your fitness level to see progress in your lifestyle.
