HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE THE EFFECTS OF SPORT?

Forget those tempting promises in magazines about losing all your extra weight with just a few days of effort, or saying you can get the body of an Olympic athlete with just 10 push-ups a day. To see the positive effects of sport on your body, you need patience, motivation and unswerving regularity.

TO SEE THE POSITIVE EFFECTS OF SPORT ON YOUR BODY, YOU NEED PATIENCE, MOTIVATION AND UNSWERVING REGULARITY.

HERE ARE THE STAGES YOU'RE SURE TO GO THROUGH.

THE EFFECTS OF SPORT AFTER 2 TO 3 WEEKS OF EXERCISE

It's difficult or even impossible to concretely measure the effects of exercise after just 2 to 3 weeks. It is often after a short period of time that those with the least motivation tend to give up. Big mistake: 3 weeks is how long it takes to change habits and form new ones. So there is a pivotal moment: be patient, and stick at it!

 

Even if your body doesn't immediately show the results of your fitness training, the positive effects will be evident in many other ways: have you noticed that you get angry less easily? That you're less out of breath after climbing those dreaded stairs? Or that your self-confidence is growing? These are also the positive effects of sport.

THE EFFECTS OF SPORT AFTER 6 TO 8 WEEKS OF EXERCISE

After around 2 months of effort, your body has started to transform and you will start to notice the first physical changes. Now, we advise you to stay off those awful scales that make you feel so bad about your body: your main indicators will be your clothes and your well-being, nothing else!

 

Given that fat takes up more space than muscle, but muscle is heavier, it's logical that you won't see significant weight loss. You might not even see any! But rest assured: your body has begun its transformation.

 

To boost the positive effects of sport on your body, serious training will be required: a minimum of 3 times a week is a good frequency. Food will also play a role in this transformation. Eating the right things at the right points in your day will help you capitalise on your efforts at the gym or on the court. Change also comes from what's on your plate!

THE EFFECTS OF SPORT ON THE BODY AFTER 3 TO 6 MONTHS

All of the efforts you have made in the first months of your exercise regime will be really visible from around 3 months. If you have been training right and eating right, you can be sure that your hard work will pay off!

Obviously, the results will differ between people: we don't all have the same genetics, the same basic fitness level, the same dietary baggage, or even the same morphology...

AS YOU CAN SEE, IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO ESTABLISH A PRECISE CALENDAR FOR THE EFFECTS OF EXERCISE ON THE BODY. BE PATIENT AND PERSEVERE: YOU'RE SURE TO SEE RESULTS!

IN ANY CASE, WE CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCES: share your progress or ask any questions you might have in the comments!
