Life, it happens. Work and family demands often interrupt our personal time for health and exercise. When this compounds from a single training session to multiple days or heaven forbid weeks, you have a problem. Time stops for nothing. Thus, the prioritization of self is truly not a choice. It’s a habit. Learning to say “no” is a skill that needs to be trained. When you respect yourself, others, in turn, show you more respect and understand your value.
Here are some tips to make things happen when you’re forced to modify.
- Have a list of “go-to” exercises you can quickly engage with. Ideally, these create a large oxygen demand, lending themselves to higher repetition training, via one continuous set, or multiple sets linked with short rest.
- Kettlebell Swings
- DB Cleans
- Squat Thrusts or Burpees
- Walking or Standing Reverse Lunges
- Step-Ups: weighted or unweighted
- Plank Mobility Complexes
- Short cardio bouts are good to implement as well.
- Warm-up for 5 minutes easy.
- Intervals: 10 x (:15 hard / :45 easy) or (:30 hard / :30 easy)
- Cooldown with 5 minutes easy.
Remind yourself to ask the question “how can I,” instead of stating “I can’t.” You can do it. Send me an email, give me a call, I’m here to help you implement, strategize and succeed.
Onward and Upward!
