Mind games keep you fat....what games keep you fit?

March 22, 2019

There are so many excuses.

 

“Working out hurts. I’m hung over. I didn’t sleep. I’m scared to get started. The pain. I’m too overweight to workout. My asthma.”

 

Blah blah blah. . .

 

Yes, I’m calling you out. Yes, experiencing the shortness of breath working out is scary and hurts. It makes you deal with the reality. . .

 

You are A SHAPE, not in shape.

 

Throughout my years of coaching, I’ve heard pretty much every excuse imaginable. And yeah, on occasion I use the same excuses on myself. At some point, usually when the sun pokes out to begin the day, I accept it is time to get back on my regimen. It’s GO TIME.

 

The first few workouts suck. They always do. It rarely feels good while doing it, but I always feel better afterwards. The best advice I can give you is to relish in how good you feel after a workout. Staying positive and excited about your workout absolutely does help you show up for the next workout.  

 

Sticking to a planned workout is the exact thing to do to prevent a missed workout. The qualities of being a champion are in your mindset: perseverance, toughness, awareness, hard-work ethic, being positive and coachable. Say to yourself; "The ability to stick to an exact prescription is vital to my long-term success of showing up."

 

Getting comfortable being uncomfortable with your fitness is the fastest way to achieve your goals. It is exactly the same as at your job. Working around the clock on a project is brutally hard, really uncomfortable, and exhausting. But at the end, the results and efforts are worth it.

 

How is that any different—or more important—than taking time to improve yourself?

 

Below is a simple workout for you to get started. It barely takes 20 minutes

Set a 30 second timer on your phone. Look over the first list of exercises. GO! 

 

5 Burpees – then run for the remainder of 30 seconds.

Time your rest. Take 2 to 3 minutes to recover.

 

10 Squats - run for the remainder of 30 seconds.

Time your rest. Take 2 to 3 minutes to recover.

 

10 Pushups - run for the remainder of 30 seconds.

Time your rest. Take 2 to 3 minutes to recover.

 

10 Mountain climbers - run for the remainder of 30 seconds.

Time your rest. Take 2 to 3 minutes to recover.

 

15 Jumping jacks - run for the remainder of 30 seconds.

Time your rest. Take 2 to 3 minutes to recover.

 

That’s it. You did it!

 

Celebrate your accomplishment, eat something healthy, and start anticipating tomorrow’s workout.
