Do you sometimes get impatient about whythe results of your workout are not already showing? In this video, I'll sharehow long it takes for your exercise efforts to start showing off so let'sjust dive right into it.
Hello it's FitnessPhreek, dedicated toinspiring you to build a disciplined and consistent fitness lifestyle.
If that'sexactly what you're about then this channel is definitely for you.
Okay raiseyour hand if you've ever complained that all your exercise efforts are notshowing, raise your hand if you've ever said, why have I been working on my absand I can't see the abs after two days.
Haha Okay, I know we have all been guilty ofthese things at one time or the other but the fact is when it comes to workingout it's not magic in quotes.
Think about the years it took you to add onwhatever weight it is you are trying to lose or to grow into whatever body it is that you are trying to work on.
In that same light, I want you to know that it'll equally take a reasonable amount of time for you to get the results that you areafter.
It's not going to happen overnight.
You have to patiently put in the workthrough your exercise and of course allow the process to take its course until the results begin to show.

WAT When you just begin a newworkout routine, several changes occur in your body I've broken these changes downinto eight phases.
The very first stage is the stage where you feel alert andenergized, and you have more blood flow to your brain.
The next stage, which isthe stage that people dread the most is where you experience DOMS, D-O-M-S Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness.
This lasts for about 72 hours.
If you've everworked out and experienced pain the next day, that wasDOMS that you experienced.
So don't fall into the trap of just stopping theexercise altogether keep at it and trust me after72 hours, it all goes away.
so long as you consistently exercise those muscles.
Forthe next stage it's not physical and it's something that goes on insideyour cells.
So the cells of your body has this part called mitochondria.
When youjust begin exercising, the production of mitochondria increases.
The benefitof this is that mitochondria is the part of the cell that helps convert fat, protein and carbs to fuel that is now sent to those muscles thatyou are working out and remember that your heart is also a muscle so when youexercise it gets bigger and it pumps fast and gets stronger.
The next stagecomes after six to eight weeks of exercising you begin to feel more fitand that's because mitochondria production has gone up by over 50% inyour body.
At this point you get to build more endurance that's why you see someone who has been working out for a long time, not getting tired whereas someone who just started working out would lose gas much faster.
If youare able to work out consistently for up to six months then you are less likelyto drop out.
Most times people drop out of working out before they get to sixmonths.
So by the sixth month of your working out if you were concentrating onstrength training for instance that is training and exercising with weights, you'llnotice that the muscles begin to form and then you can physically see someonewho has been consistently going to the gym for six months focusing on strengthtraining begin to show muscles and then you're like.
Have you beengyming? The next stage happens after nine months of consistent cardioworkouts.
If cardio was your focus after nine months you begin to reap thebenefits fully.
There's something called vo2 max, the rate of transport ofoxygen to your muscles for fuel is at an all-time high.
So higher vo2 max just means that you can run faster for a longer time.
Now Iknow why these Kenyans always win the Lagos City Marathon and all the marathons inthe world.
I mean you have vo2 max must be like way up here and your own vo2 max might probably just be here.
You get the point, so the next time we'regoing for a marathon race we're going to start practicing more than nine monthsbefore the race, so that we can build our vo2 max.
The next stage comes after one year, your bones become denser and then this reduces the risk ofosteoporosis.
I've talked about osteoporosis slightly in one of myprevious videos, I'll link it up here so you can do well to check it out.
Osteoporosis in simple terms just means that your bones are more porous than theaverage person.
So by exercising consistently over aperiod of 12 months, you would have built denser bones.
After one year, you'll now belooking at exercising as a lifestyle for the long term.
Then you can nowstart talking about benefits that transcend beyond your body.
Yourbank accounts benefits.
Why? Some cardiovascular diseases like arthritistype 2 diabetes some types of cancer heart diseases literally just go awayfrom you because why not.
That translates to less money being spent onhospital bills and unnecessary drugs that you don't need because you wereexercising.
