Ever have that over whelming feeling of not knowing what class to do? What way to train? Doing everything possible then doing nothing? .
We feel ya!! Especially in this time when there are more free classes than you’ve had hot dinners and everyone’s saying that they will come out of quarantine shredded blah blah… let’s remember this isn’t a weight loss competition or the cross fit games!!
.To start with do something you enjoy. Why would you chose to start running if running is something you hate? Be nice to yourself during this crazy time.
We know that the best workout is always the one you actually do CONSISTENTLY. So instead of thinking which workout will burn more calories, think about which workout will keep you interested enough that you want to keep doing it.
Once you’ve decided what to do. Find a trainer that inspires you. There are literally thousands to choose from online, find one or several that you want to tune into regularly.
At 12 Rounds we like adding a bit of fun and humour to our sessions to keep you entertained as you workout 🙂
So our No 1 training tip is CONSISTENCY IS KEY! With that you need to:
1. Pick you goal- make it achievable and have more than 1. Think about how you are going to know when you reach your goal eg your clothes fit better, you have more energy, you can complete that run in a certain amount of time, you can finally do a set of press ups….Be SPECIFIC and be clear on how you will MEASURE you’re on the right track.
2. Work out a way to reach that goal. Plan the sessions you’re going to do. Make a training diary. Don’t overdo it though and plan rest days too. Rest is just as important as the actual workouts, this is when the body changes and adapts.
3. It’s a marathon not a sprint. If you don’t see results in a week that’s normal, have 4-6 week blocks and go from there. Go back to your goals and do a check in. If you are not on the right track after 4-6 weeks then look at what you can change. More often than not it’s diet related as most of us find this the hardest bit to stick to, but that’s a whole other blog……
