Hope everyone had a great new years! Wanted to shed some light on some people who have new years resolutions and should focus on accomplishing them. Don’t say you’ll just do it because 90% of the time its not going to get done. A common suggestion to help and lead you the right direction is to write down your goals! And to create a schedule that you’ll stick with! Nothing you can easily think about but nothing so difficult you can’t commit to. Let’s say 1 hour for 3 days every week.
I am currently riding my bike at high intensity 2x a week for 30 minutes. I am currently training 2 runners once a week for 1 hour sessions. I also ride my bike in the weekends.
Mix it up! Don’t do the same exercises all the time. Do some cardio one day, do some strength another and other days relax or play a relaxing game of golf or tennis.
Don’t exhaust yourself! I’m on the verge of killing myself, doing all these activities and workouts. And working overtime isn’t helping.
Get enough rest and sleep! Most important and I’ll have to do this too. If you don’t get enough rest you’ll end up sick in bed and all the hard work and effort you put in to get stronger and better at exercises, you’ll need to recover and regenerate it all over again. What a waste of time! Right?
