Yes, I found more difficult to workout on weekends. I guess house cleaning and chores count as move but not as average exercise.
Em Lio P.
Yes I think it’s harder to excercise on weekends because weekends don’t have the regular Mon to Fri routines. So it’s easier to include the excerise routine to weekdays
I find it difficult to keep up the routine on the weekends. I decided to just do the exercise portion right when I wake up so I can keep up my progress.
I don’t consider cleaning and outside work exercise. I consider exercise as a special time that you put aside to help your body become stronger. Push ups build arm muscle. Running builds leg muscles. Etc.
Good luck on your journey!
It depends on the type of household chores. I found that sweeping and mopping to uptempo music while dancing is great cardio
I don’t think chores are exercise and honestly I have a harder time working out on school mornings because I’m always so tired and just want to sleep those extra 7 minutes.
- How do you keep exercising interesting? I don’t want to hit a plateau.
- I only do calisthenics. I have been doing core training, push-ups, and pull-ups every day for a few months. I’ve been stuck at around 20 max pull-ups for months and can’t seem to get stronger. I do different variations every day so I almost never do the same exercise 2 days in a row. My question is would it be better to take rest days on core exercises? And should I focus on certain muscle groups instead of doing everything in a day? When I take a rest day I feel like I’m weaker the next day, so I try and take as few as possible. But I’m just not sure if it’s my program. Also, if anyone knows of some great calisthenic exercises to get shredded it would be greatly appreciated. I need a good calisthenic workout program.
- How do you find an exercise you enjoy that doesn’t cost too much?
- Is it necessary to sign up for a goal (e.g. a 5k run) to keep your exercise on track?
- How do you find exercise habits for disabled people? I’m finding it a challenge to several things. I can’t jog or run. At the moment I also have broken ribs so I can only walk short distances. Is there anything else I can do?
- Do you find exercising with a friend or partner more rewarding than exercising alone?
- What do you do for better sleep?
- How do you prepare for your morning routine? Does it start the night before?
- How can I stop planning things but never finishing them?
- What commitment devices do you use to make sure you complete your exercise habit?
