I think to make it more of a habit, try to do something that doesn't take too much time. Something like 10 minutes would be a great start. Whether that would be the 7 minute work out through this app, going on YouTube and looking for a 10 minute Pilates work out or whatever. Because if it's only 10 minutes on your entire day, you just can't refuse it anymore
I love to swim since it is a full body workout with integrated cardio. Ballet workouts on Youtube are great too. They help make you flexible and let you develop lean yet functional muscles.
I think a great way to get blood pumping in the morning, wake up, and feel great is to put in your headphones (or turn on your stereo) and put on some happy music to dance to! Just dance around and feel yourself smile inside!
Small amounts of high intensity movement as often as you can. Dancing for 2 mins whenever a suitable song comes on. Walking up and down stairs a few extra times. Kicking your feet while watching tv.
- 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?
