Make Plans For Your Daily Workout Routine By Jonas Forsberg
If you are like most people, you probably have a hard time fitting a workout into your daily schedule.
We all have our own priorities, but fact is, no matter how busy you are, you should still be able to add a workout into your daily routine.
Let me show you a few examples on how you can arrange your day so you will get at least a 10-15 min workout, every day!
What do you think of that?
1. Be prepared
First off, you need be prepared. And in order to be prepared, you need to plan your day. The evening before is where it all begins.
Start by taking out your clothes and put them on a chair next to your bed. After that, pack your brief case and then deal with other important tasks you feel you need to have control over for the upcoming day.
2. Write a list
Another thing you need to do is to write a list on what things you are going to accomplish the following day. This is a great tip that are being used by successful businessmen all over the world, and if it works for them, why would it not work for you?
Another good tip is to shave the evening before, since this well save you a lot of time, and probably cuts and rashes, which you often get when you shave in a hurry.
4. Get up earlier
Yeah, I know, it is a pain in the ass to have to get up earlier. But honestly, it will do you a lot of good, I promise. Set the clock to 40 min earlier than usual.
5. The next 40 min.
Min 1-5: Go straight to the kitchen and get half a protein shake in your system.
Min 5-14: Go over your notes and preparations from the night before. Make sure everything is in place and that nothing is missing. Take out the breakfast and put it on the counter.
Min 14-29: Perform a fast and effective circuit workout in the comfort of your own home.
Min 30-39: Take a hot shower and relax for a few minutes.
Min 40: Get dressed and then hit the kitchen for a world-champion breakfast.
6. Why morning workouts works best for you
When you have done your morning workout, you are then done for the day. No more concerns or worries on how to fit a workout into your schedule.
When you get home from work you can spend some extra quality time with your family, you can watch your favorite TV-shows, etc. The possibilities are endless!
Research is showing that short and intense circuit workouts release a good amount of endorphins, which is a hormone that, for instance, controls your mood.
So when you release endorphins, you will be in a better mood. By doing morning workouts - you will without a doubt be in a good mood throughout the rest of the day!
According to several studies, physical activity actually increases productivity. Quite the opposite to what most people believe, a morning workout will not get you tired and unfocused - it will get you a lot more focused and productive!
So before you find another excuse to why you were not able to perform a workout today, ask yourself if it really is the time that is the problem, or if it is something else?
