I’d like for you to ask yourself these 2 questions before jumping into a training schedule for yourself.
- What does a body I’m proud of look like? Feel like? And what can I do with it?
- What does a good enough workout look like and feel like to me?
Go ahead, take a few minutes to answer them.
The reason I want you to do this is because lifting weights in the gym 4 to 5 days per week might not be necessary for you to build a body you’re proud of. Running outside might not be needed to build a body that you’re proud of( cuz running sucks!). Hell, even stretching and improving flexibility and mobility might not be needed to build a body you’re proud of.
As for the good enough workout question, I say anything that you can realistically adhere to is good enough. Because let’s face it there’s no point in doing something for 5 days when the thing you will enjoy doing could last for 5 years.
Often we get wrapped up living someone else’s fitness identity and forget to establish our own. We end up doing workout plans and following templates that we don’t enjoy or feel good about. You’re not going to stick to something that you hate.
Look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself. “What do I like to do”? and attack it with every ounce of being you have! You are better off starting slow and working towards the goal of 5-7 hours of activity than starting with big lofty goals not accomplishing them and setting yourself up for failure.
