Solution #2 – I am already a sexy beast, I don’t need to workout…

Ok, so you may already be gifted with an incredible physique.  How lucky are you? Uh,Very…  The question is, are you really going to just take it for granted that because of your genetics, a fitness habit should get pushed to the back burner?  That is for you to decide…

Here are a few items to consider to the contrary: (BTW I am not a PT or doctor so please consult a professional, as the below are just recommendations)

1.  General health – find out what level of physical activity is required to keep your heart healthy just general body over all.  Kind of a good idea, since general health is always a good thing.

2.  The rare “Hike when on vacation” or “Huge steps to climb  when the elevator shuts down”.  What are you going to do when a random event occurs in your life that requires physical activity beyond your daily “non-workout” life style.  I can tell from experience is quite embarrassing to look fit on the outside and entirely un-fit  (is that a word), on the inside.  For sure those events can be wake up calls.

Especially when the random snowboarding or wake boarding outing presents itself.  Wow talk about a wake up call when out on the water or on the slopes and your body is DONE!  Let’s not even count the SORENESS the next day..

3.  The slight edge effect:  maybe right now you are totally in shape.  However, there is a potential for the weight to creep up on you like a sneaky cat…then bam you look down, when did I gain 10 LBS?  Hence how about some small effort taken daily or every other day that at least maintains your incredible body.

4.  All in all this post is for the rare few.  For those who this applies, I highly recommend watching out for  #2….

Solution #1 – “I don’t have enough time”

Probably the most over used excuse in the world for not allocating focus to your fitness.  Because of this wildly used excuse I think it deserves a little breaking down…

1.  We all have 24 hours in a day.  Like a big suitcase,  some are better at packing that “daily suitcase” with their to-do lists that others.  So for beginners I don’t want to hear that you don’t have enough time.  At least make the excuse that you have other priorities “packed” that are currently taking the place of your workout time.

2.  “Try to focus on the solution and not the problem”, instead of telling your brain and everyone else that you have no time to work out.  Why not say to your self, “how can I fit in 30 minutes today for my health, fitness of muscle building”.  BE CREATIVE if that is what it takes.  The answer will magically appear.

3.  Wake up early or stay up late.  Get up and hour early if you can swing it or stay up an hour later.  There is always empty time at the beginning and end of each day.

4.  The truth…..what “I don’t have time”, really means is that your goals, health, or fitness routine is REALLY NOT THAT IMPORTANT to YOU.  So lets make it important and get in to ACTION.  Everyday’s effort small or large compounds upon itself , you are either compounding in a upward motion or downward motion….there in NO IN BETWEEN.  Choose compound up!

5.  Example:  I had a busy day yesterday and really didn’t have a ton of energy when I got home, BUT I went to the gym and knocked out a quick 30 minute workout.  As I was leaving a guy pulled me aside and said “man that was fast”.  I replied, “I have a lot to do today, but there is NO EXCUSE why I can’t get in to ACTION, if only for 30 minutes”.

So all in all, please catch yourself if you ever use the excuse, “I HAVE NO TIME TO WORKOUT”….because we all know it is not the real reason.   Now get out there and succeed.

21 Days of Excuses

Why is there a post about “excuses” on a blog about “workout motivation tips”?   It is pretty simple really, most of the reasons to workout stem from the excuses people have on “WHY NOT” to move to action and gain momentum.

Get ready for the next 21 days as I count down from the most common excuses to the lease common.

They say it takes 21 days to replace a bad habit with a good one.

Maybe we replace all the excuses with compelling reasons to ACT….

Getting started

This first message is for those who need a little extra kick to get started in the gym.  Whether it be working out for bodybuilding or losing weight through a cardio program.  The statement i hear all the time is…”I am just not motivated to work out”?  What does that mean?  It means that in your current mental state you have no motive to act. The solution to action can come in many forms, and over the last 8 years I have found a few tricks to implement that will get you started:

  • Energy – are you home from a 8-5 job and so tired that you don’t have the energy to work out?  Well if that is you I’d recommend a pre-workout energy drink.  Or simply, a cup of white raisins,  a glass of 100% grape juice and some oatmeal to give you fast, slow and medium energy calories to get you started.
 
  • Clothes – you are not going to be motivated sitting around your house in your work clothes.  Go put on your workout gear and magically you will begin to feel the mood change.  Try some bouncy shoes as well, as they help put a boost in your step.
 
  • Music – Crank it up and start it early.  Music has an effect that moves the body and releases a feeling in the body that aids focus and energy.  No classical or talk shows, get some fast paced, high energy music.
 
  • Workout Buddy – this option works great if you can arrange to meet all the time.  However, when you trusted partner can make it don’t let that be an excuse why you can’t hit the weights. 
 
  • The Workout Plan – write down your plan before you arrive to work out before you engage.  This will activate the goal setting mechanism in your brain and give you a more focused mind set. 
 
  • Self Talk – if you are really having a hard time getting off the couch.  Don’t be scared to tell your self, “GET UP, LETS GO”  be your own coach.  You’d be surprised how motivating a good “SELF PEP TALK” can be.
