Working out is not a chore; it is a commitment.
It’s a commitment to your health in the moment, to the longevity of your body and to preserving range of motion in old age. If you are someone who struggles to get motivated when it comes to working out, take a minute to boil it down to these basic commitments.
Highly effective habits for working out
- Seek variety: cardio one day, weight training the next. Mixing up your daily workout is a great way to overcome the monotony that can make working out feel like a chore.
- Avoid working out just for looks: yes looks are important for confidence, but don’t focus soley on those muscles. There are 29 muscles that constitute your “core” and that is a lot more than just the abs.
- Avoid taking short cuts: pressed for time? Don’t skip the warm up; that is the number 1 way to way to injure yourself.
- Stretch! To improve your circulation and the elasticity of your joints which will help improve range of motion and prevent injury.
