More stress level can result in increased cortisol level. That results in more food cravings. Relax your mind in the best possible ways.

Have different workouts routines
Human body has ability to accept and absorb the change after specific interval of time. The food intake, sleeping patterns, sports etc and we call it a routine. Likewise your body gets used to one workout routine after sometime. It will develop a capability to bare the stress it goes through sooner or later. That is why you need a new workout time table after specific interval. Try new exercises for muscle growth, increase or decrease the weight you lift, have tips from some other instructor, try some compound exercises or increase the repetition.
Work on your Legs
Let me tell you on odd implication “Work on your legs, if you want to work on the other parts of your body”. Yes!! Working on your legs will help you to build muscles of your body. 70 percent muscles are present in the lower part of body. When you will work on this part, it will release certain hormones to make other muscles strong. Doing squats, running, deadlifts and more will make It easier to build on muscles of your arms, back and chest as well. And muscular legs will increase your confidence for sure.
Decrease Body Fats While You Are Not Working Out
Decreasing body fats and reaching to the peak fitness point is not possible at the same time. The reason is, when you lose weight you take less calories that can make you more tired while working out. So the best way is to shed some fats in off season or during less hectic training sessions. Take small meals while you are reading book or having family time. Most experts say that losing half kg (1 pound) is ideal weight loss for Athletes.

All the young ladies and Gentlemen, take it easy. Do not rush for supplements to build your muscles up. Supplements are not going to help you in gym. And many of them can destroy your figure once you stop using them. Learn to relax and limit your activities when you are out of gym. Excess of everything is wrong, use your energy in other activities too. Adequate workout and balance diet is the best and healthiest way to keep your body fit and happy.
