In an ideal lifestyle, you have plenty of time to put towards getting a workout in and being able have a healthy balance. That means being able to stop working at the office and put time towards getting active. Unfortunately, people often find themselves struggling to find that balance. How can you possibly balance school, work, family, time for yourself AND getting a workout in?
We have come up with a few tips for how you can finally slip a workout into your already hectic schedule so that you can stay fit and healthy, allowing you to continue taking on the world!
1) Set Your alarm early!
Transitioning into an early riser will allow you to get your workout done at a much earlier time, thus allowing you to get it out of the way as soon as possible. Imagine if the very first thing that you did everyday was move your body and get active, don't you think that you would both start your day on a much stronger note and never had to worry about saying "Shoot, I still need to go get a workout in and it's already getting late!" Transitioning into becoming an early riser is surely a beneficial route to go for the already busy individual.
2) Multitask on the treadmill
Being on the treadmill can certainly feel like a drag at times, so why not get more than one thing done at once! Imagine getting those calls out of the way that you've been meaning to make WHILE you are doing some paced cardio? Or imagine busting out a ton of emails on your phone while you are in between sets? This would totally crush any excuse that you have about not being able to at least do cardio because you are now doing it while you are doing the tasks that you already have to do anyways!
2) Get a 5-minute Isophit session in
Imagine being able to get a powerful workout completed in JUST 5 minutes! Wouldn't that make you feel absolutely incredible by saving all that time? Isophit is great for not only the short time that it takes to get a workout in, it also gives you a real challenege. An isometric exercise is a contraction of a muscle without any visible movement in the angle of the joint. The muscle is contracted in a fixed joint position, or against an immovable object. The benefits and results have always been exceptional, but with the advent of fitness as an industry over the past 40 years and the development of weight lifting and cardiovascular machines, Isometric exercise slipped into the background.Whether your goal is to build strength, burn fat, improve bone density, lower blood pressure, decrease muscle and joint pain, correct muscle imbalances, increase tendon stiffness or enhance athletic performance.
There you have it! There are three tips for finding the time to workout with a busy schedule! Now you have absolutely NO excuse as to why you can't be in the best shape of your life even if you are insanely busy.
