Langhorne, PA (PressExposure) June 27, 2008 -- Fitness professionals all over the world are trying to educate mass quantities of people on how to lift weights properly, in order to ensure better and faster results with each workout. Many people are actually overtraining when they work out, and they have no idea. Dr. Kareem Samhouri ("Dr. K"), of Lift Hard Play Hard.com, urges fitness enthusiasts to overcome this obstacle by using a very simple method he has his clients use every single day.
"By continuously monitoring your level of "perceived exertion," my clients are able to constantly ensure that they are performing at the optimal intensity to reach their goals. Many people do not realize that an alternating intensity between high and low is the best method for fat loss," states Dr. K. "The ability for people to sense their own level of intensity is the most critical component in weight loss fitness if you ask me. The method is simple: Ask yourself, on a scale of 0-10, with 10 being the most intense thing you've ever done and 0 being no effort whatsoever, where you stand. For a fat loss program, you should be between 9 and 9.5 during short, intense bouts of exercise, alternating with prolonged periods between 5 and 7."
This community has seen too many people become injured while exercising and it's just not right. In fact, these very people are attempting to do something positive for their health, and they do not even realize the repercussion of overtraining. "Overtraining does not only result in injury, but it results in weight gain, decreased circulation to vital organs, and deprivation of oxygen to muscle tissue needed for exercise," says Dr. K. People all over the world are beginning to understand the value of learning exercise from a fitness professional. "With the online world as it is, it's no longer an obstacle to find an expert in fitness and follow his or her program."
