How long after working out do you see results?
We get this question (or one like it) a lot, so we put together this article that walks you through some thoughts on how long after you start training you should expect to notice your workouts creating a change in your body’s abilities and composition.
Of course, when many of us start working out, we’re really hoping to see results fast. To some extent, exercise does make you feel better immediately in the form of feel-good endorphins, but the majority of exercisers are after something a little more long term and visible — usually a leaner silhouette, the loss of fat, and gain of muscle.
For these kinds of changes, it takes a bit longer and it helps to have realistic expectations about what to expect, so we’ve taken some time to help break down some of what to expect by goal.
Happy reading, everyone! Remember, be patient with yourself, listen to your body, don’t compare yourself to others, and realize that real changes take time and consistency. We’re all in this together, so keep the wonderful Fitness Blender Community posted on your progress and let us know if you need a little support or encouragement.
