Resolution Training Tips

January 2, 2012, 6:14 PM by Casey Wonnenberg

Resolution Training Tips
SIOUX FALLS, SD - Gyms are busier this time of year with thousands of people making New Year's resolutions to get into shape.

While the goal is to become healthier, if you don't know how to exercise properly, you could do more harm than good.

Lee Saude made a resolution to get into shape before 2012 and he's committed to his goal.

"On my dying day, I want to be able to come to the gym, work out, go to bed, and die. How about that?" Saude said.

Saude began pedaling towards his goal around a month ago. He's already seeing a difference.

"Weight workout three times a week, cardio five or six times a week," Saude said.

While you may be ready to quick start your workout routine, you need to make sure you don't overdo it because that can lead to injuries.

"You can get some overuse injuries definitely. It's something your body may not be used to if you didn't do it before hand. So, that can lead to different complications as well," YMCA Healthy Lifestyles Director Adam Reppe said.

Reppe says to avoid injuries, take baby steps towards your goal.

"Start with just light cardio. Try to get in here just a couple times a week, just so your body gets used to it," Reppe said.

When you are ready to move forward, make sure you take a look back at your goal to stay on course.

"Instead of saying, 'Over the year, I want to do this...,' you just want it to be the next two months so you can realistically do that," Reppe said.

With a month under his belt, Saude says the best advice he has to offer is to be realistic.

"Don't give up after a week; keep working at it. It's hard work, guys," Saude said.

It's hard work that may require you to walk before you run.

Reppe says if you have a medical history of heart conditions or injuries, you should talk to your doctor before starting a new workout regimen.
