Hi guys, it’s Zainab here, welcome or welcome back to Zainab Chats! Today’s post is going to be a fitness related post, which I honestly don’t post a lot. But, we are at the end of February meaning the 2nd month of 2022 is gone. And since one of my resolutions was to work out more, here is some of my advice to make working out more efficient!
Use Extracurriculars as Ways of Working Out
I’m sure many of you do other clubs and activities that require being active. Well, you can class them as workouts without actually having to go to the gym or do a home workout. This way, you can be having fun and keeping fit! For example, you can use PE lessons at school to count as a workout or a sport you do. Just make it creative!
Interleave Workouts Between Days
As working out was a new years resolution, I didn’t want to just jump right in. Because working out every day would just increase burnout and decrease motivation. So, interleaving is great way to rest so you can be prepared for the next workout! For example, you can workout on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays but rest on the other days – so you’ve still exercised three times in the week!
Have Other People With You For Motivation
I talked about accountability in my post about Creating New Habits and this is applicable to workouts as well. For anything you do, when you get tired you want to stop – but that’s when your workout is the most efficient. So, having someone with you is really going to help you out. Whether it’s a sports instructor telling you to do something one more time, or someone just telling you to keep going – anything will help increase motivation!
So, I really hope this post was useful for anyone whose resolution was to work out more. Please feel free to share how you’re keeping up with resolutions in the comments!
