Summer Gear Up: How Soon To Start Your Beach Body Workout

Summer Gear UpWith the summer season quickly approaching, some of you may be wondering how soon you should start getting prepared for what’s to come.  Everyone wants to look great during the summer as you’ll be wearing clothing that offers much less coverage and possibly be spending some time on the beach.

If you want to create your very own best ‘beach body’ look, you must know where to start as well as how soon to start.

Let’s look at a few of the main factors to consider when determining how soon you should begin preparing for the beach season ahead.

Assess How Much Weight You Have To Lose

Assess How Much Weight You Have To LoseThe very first step you need to take is assessing how much weight you have to lose.  If you have 20+ pounds to lose to get down to your ideal summer weight, it would be a great idea to get started now so that you can work at a moderate pace and not have to diet too incredibly hard.  Giving yourself 3 months to lose this weight would be reasonable and allow you to stay safe throughout the process.

If you only have those last stubborn five pounds to lose, then beginning about a month before you want to reach your goal weight would be a smart plan.

How Strict Do You Plan To Diet?

How Strict Do You Plan To Diet?The second thing that you need to consider is how strict you want to be when you’re dieting.  The stricter you prefer to be, the less total time it will likely take you to reach that goal weight.

If you prefer a more relaxed approach to dieting with flexibility, then allowing a little more leeway time will be a good option.  You may see progress at a slightly slower rate so you’ll want to account for this.

How Much Time Do You Have To Devote To Exercise?

How Much Time Do You Have To Devote To Exercise?The third thing to think about is how much time you have to devote to an exercise plan.  If you can hit the gym almost every day for some form of exercise, you’ll likely see results slightly quicker than someone who is only working out for 30 minutes a couple times a week.

This isn’t to say that you have to devote hours and hours to your workout session, but making sure that you are realistic with the results you see based on the time frame you have is important.

How Well Do You Follow A Plan?

If you’re someone who often finds yourself falling off the plan time and time again, then you may need to allow for a little more time to get yourself to your end goal.

Fortunately, if you choose a good plan in the first place you shouldn’t have the problem of constantly falling off it, but if you are the type who does struggle, it’s important to take this into account.

Add an extra few weeks so that you can make up for lost time should problems occur.

There you have the main factors to keep in mind regarding how soon you should begin gearing up for beach season.  Be smart with your approach and you will make sure to reveal your hottest body come summer.
