Try breaking up your workout session into reps. Make a list of your workout moves and take a 30 second pause between each cycle. (Ie. 15 squats, 10 deadlifts, 1 minute plank, 30 mountain climbers — 30 second pause — repeat!) You can change/add/remove any workout moves you want!
If you don’t have a lot of time to exercise all at once or if you don’t really like exercising, then doing short exercise throughout the day would be good.
If you just want to get it all done & over with, then the long exercise would be best.
Either one is good, some exercise is better then no exercise.
After about one month it became a routine and I am on 20 push-ups now each morning.
If you start with something bigger it’s probably gonna discourage you and maybe after 2 or 3 times you’ll abandon it because you will spend a lot of energy.
Tiny things keeping on track will make you reach the highest level.
Nothing wrong with shorter more frequent sessions if that works for you! And if one longer session is your jam, then go for it!! 🙂
It comes down to what your goals are in the end, if you’re training for body building comp or to run a marathon, you’re probably gonna be looking at different types of training styles and lengths. But if you are just trying to keep active each day like me, i would recommend starting off with just a 15-20 min focussed session each day.
