How to Stop Binge Eating at Night – Exercise Strategy
5. Walk, swim, treadmill for 5 minutes or even better for 10, 20 or 30 minutes. If you can do a mile, then great, walk a mile, even two to start your day in the morning after mentally preparing yourself to have your best day possible.
Even better, if you can walk for an hour, do it. Get out of your house. Get out of your apartment. Get moving outside. Now! Go take a long walk for an hour. Can you do that? I think just about anyone can walk, how great is that?! Go ahead friend, wash your face, put on your sneakers and start walking.
6. After your walk or run, you should feel pretty warmed up. Now is a good time to go to the free weight area of your gym and do some deadlifts. Do one set of deadlifts with twelve repetitions.
If you cannot do deadlifts, then you should start with something doable for yourself like static holds. You can start with the plank and go forward from there. You can read more about the benefits of static holds here. If you are able to deadlift, then you can read further about deadlifts and the amazing benefits of deadlifting right here. I want you and me to get in a good warmup, but I would say that in the event that you do not have much time for a brisk walk, then at least do your strength exercises, because they will build muscle and transform your body in ways that you cannot imagine right now.
Besides deadlifts and static holds, the other two forms of exercise that I know can have a profound effect on your strength and physique are pushups and squats. To learn more about the power and benefits of pushups read here and for the benefits of squats, read here.
