Know Your Limits

Let’s face it: there’s always a new workout trend. It’s so important to know your limits, increase your exercise intensity gradually, and do workouts that feel good for your body type. At Hamptons to Hollywood, we love tracking our workouts with an Apple Watch to see how many calories we’ve burned and steps we’ve walked in a day.

No pain, no gain

However, as much as a gradual process is good, you still need to ensure that you are pushing yourself at the same time. According to Sean Langan, you didn’t work out properly unless you’re sweating afterward. Even if it’s a 30-minute exercise routine, if you want to see results, you have to push yourself. And seeing ho much you sweat is a good barometer to judge your exertion.
