WORKOUTS FOR THE PERSON WITH NO TIME
Time. It seems that these days few people have enough of it. For some, this has made exercising difficult. Let me walk that back a bit. People's busy lives have made them think they don't have time to exercise. It's created an almost built in excuse for those looking for an excuse not to exercise. What I've attempted to do with this post is remove some of those EXCUSES. I've shown you in the past that if you want to get in the best shape of your life you not only need to eat more, many of you probably need to exercise less (HERE). That's right, the good news for many of you is that research has repeatedly shown that when it comes to exercise, less is often more.
What this means, however, is that at least some of your exercise should be intense. I'm not talking about 'kill-yourself' intense, but many of you would do well by significantly shortening your workouts, while cranking things up a bit in the intensity department at least part of the time. What are some of the ways to do this for people who don't ever seem to have enough time? I've left you a list below, but honestly, if all you did were combinations of the first four bullet points, many of you reading this would be well on your way to a fitter future.
Naturally, some of these activities require more physical skills than others. With whatever exercise program you decide on, start slow and build up. But the point is to start. Get an ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER, create a written plan, and get started. It's Saturday for Pete's sake so you can start today. No; YOU ARE NOT TOO OLD. For those struggling with chronic health issues, consult your physician and take a look at THIS POST as well.
