Get Fitter Faster With these 100 Tips



Staying strong and fit takes dedication every single day, so keep these 100 tips in mind to keep you confidently chugging along on that healthy path.
  1. Take the first five minutes of your run to warm up. Go a little slower to work out the kinks and mentally prepare for your run.
  2. Learn to breathe deeply to maximize your oxygen input.
  3. If you're trying to run at a certain speed, use music to set your pace.
  4. Run with someone faster than you to push you to increase your speed or distance. It could be a workout buddy, a stranger on the treadmill at the gym, or that runner just up the trail from you.
  5. Run faster up hills by focusing on the top of the hill, not your feet. It'll help open your airways, and when it's easier to breathe, it's easier to run.
  6. Raise the incline on the treadmill to increase your calorie burn. A five percent incline will burn almost 100 more calories, so pump it up!
  7. Switch up your route or workout every time you run to keep your muscles guessing and to beat boredom; run your outside loop backward.
  8. Don't run every day. Vary your cardio to prevent overuse injuries and to strengthen other muscles.
  9. Work on your running form to avoid pain or injuries.
  10. To avoid injury when increasing your mileage, follow the 10 percent rule: never increase your weekly mileage by more than 10 percent of the previous week.
  11. On longer runs, aim to have a negative split. The second half of your run should be faster than the first to avoid bonking and to finish strong.
  12. Running outside not only boosts your mood, but the uneven terrain, especially when trail running, requires more balance, agility, and coordination, which makes your muscles work harder.

Don't skip the cool down it preps your body for your next workout! Do this postrun stretching sequence to target the hips, hamstrings, and lower back.
