Hibernation has finally said goodbye and you’re slowly feeling more awake and in a better mood? Then now is the best time to start spring fit.

Sport at the beginning of spring: set realistic goals
Before you go to the sports field or to the gym, you should therefore sit down at home and think about it: what goals do I want to achieve through training? How much time do I have per week and what is my experience or training preference?
The answers are noted down. The more specific they are, the easier it will be to find the right training framework, promises the expert from the German University for Prevention and Health Management in Saarbrücken. And the greater the chances of sticking with it for longer.
An important tip for sports beginners: Frequency beats intensity. Accordingly, three weekly units of 30 minutes each are better than one unit per week of 90 minutes. Laura Blanz explains: Anyone who overwhelms themselves physically by training too intensively quickly saps the joy of movement.
Because one should not forget: muscles, tendons and joints need time to get used to the new strain. Therefore, it is better to start the new training routine with a moderate intensity.
