There are so many people are struggling with working from home. Maybe the pantry is conveniently located near the home office? Dealing with kids morning till night while having a full workload on your plate? Your gym closed down or it takes an hour just to get in?
Dont worry, Club Sweat has you covered! We have helped our 70+ members not only survive COVID but THRIVE during it.
Here are our top 3 ways you can redefine and renew your routine.
Just Start Moving.
It’s so easy to get hung up on doing things the optimal way and end up preventing yourself from doing them at all. Listen to Nike and Just Do it. Below are some great guidelines to get you feeling better INSTANTLY!
- (2) Full-body workouts per week (20-30 minutes)
- (1) Long cardiovascular workout or fun/play (45-90 minutes)
Your main focus for these workouts is consistency. Nothing more. Nothing less. Remember to take a look at your schedule and see when you can commit to these workouts. BIG TIP… Perform the workouts at the same time each day to make it a habit that sticks.
QUICK WORKOUT EXAMPLES
Full body workout: Perform all exercises in a circuit. Rest one minute after all exercises are complete and repeat five times.
(10/leg) Walking lunges
(50) Jumping jacks
Focus on what you can work with.
We waste so much time focusing on what is withheld from us. This is especially true after we slip up and get off track from our goals (thanks Covid!) Here’s what we want you to think instead:
“I can work with this.” Because you can. Shift your focus from what is withheld from you to what is available to you. It’s rare that your circumstances prevent you from making any progress. You might not like the situation. But you can work with it.
Stick to your schedule, even in small ways.
It’s not the individual impact of missing your schedule that’s a big deal. It’s the cumulative impact of never getting back on track. If you miss one workout, you don’t suddenly feel more out of shape than you were before. For that reason, it’s critical to stick to your schedule, even if it’s only in a very small way. Don’t have the equipment to do a full workout? Just squat. Your favorite yoga studio still shut down? Jump on Youtube and type in “10-minute Yoga”. Find a way to stick to the schedule, no matter how small it is.
Schedule your habits into your life.
Give your habits a specific space in your life. There are two main options for making this happen…Change can be hard. In the beginning, your healthy habits might take two steps back and one step forward. Develop a plan for getting back on track and recommit to your routine as quickly as possible.
