Want to be more efficent with the little time you have to exercise? Follow these 3 tips to make the most of your time.
1. RECORD YOUR TRAINING- Use a diary or anything to record sets, reps and weight. Cause if you are not measuring progess, you are regressing.
Greg Robins from Cressey Performance coined this term this morning in his blog. A increase in work (training) means you need to increase your recovery to see greater progress. Work does include all those outside stressors( family, lack of sleep, work). What does that mean for you? If you have a great training session but you return late from work and your child wakes up during the night ill, please take a extra day to recover. Your body will thank you.
This is what i often tell people who are just starting there fitness journey and try to do too much too soon. Remember this is not just so you can lose a few pounds and fit into your favorite dress or shirt. This is for the rest of your life
Ever noticed how sporting teams has success over a long period of time? The players change but the results stays them same. They have a great system. How does that relate to exercise?
If you go into gym and just do a series of random trainings, then that'S what your results will be ... random. However if you follow your plan or 'system' that has the basic body movements of pushing, pulling, squatting and hinging or 'old school' training your results wil not be random. They will be awesome.
1.You Procrastinate- You keep putting things off. Keep waiting for the perfect time to start your new training. You keep talking about it but never put those words into action. The time for action is now!

Something really hit home today and I really feel the need to share it. It seems like we as a society we are continuously looking for motivation in order accomplish a task or attempt someting new. Today I realized that getting motivated is turning more and more into an excuse not to do something. If we aren't motivated enough to do something we come up with anything to distract us form "getting motivated" in order to accomplish a task.
My 4 year old daughter loves to point out that "the sun is setting in the western sky," just like in the book Goodnight Cowgirl. A few of my blog times have been interrupted as I have had an opportunity to teach, "no Zoe, the sun is rising, in the eastern sky." Day 5 went well and ended the challenge. But fear not. This is only because, as is common for most people, SUCCESS BREEDS SUCCESS. When we experience (feel, believe, witness) success, it motivates us to want more. Yes, I had embarked on a 10-day challenge, I have now turned it in to a 28 plus 5 day challenge.
