People always seem to have excuses as to why they cannot workout. Even for the shortest amounts of time, they will have numerous excuses as to why they cannot work out, or why they should do something else instead. Whilst sometimes these reasons can be valid and certainly understandable, overall, it needs to be recognized that there is always time for you to workout, no matter how busy your schedule is. This article holds three top tips on making time for your workout, and being able to train effectively, so that you are getting the most out of your time.
Observe your schedule.
Many people with ‘busy lifestyles’, tend to just assume that there is no time left in their week for them to be able to workout properly. This is far from the truth, and in fact, most of us have a lot more time on our hands than we think. However, how can you possibly utilize this time if you are not consciously aware that you have it? The answer is simple! Write down your schedule and observe when and where you have extra time.
Whether it is during your lunch-break, when you are looking after your kids or simply trying to work from home, there is usually some spare time for your work out. Even for just 10 minutes. So at least look at your schedule so that you can gain an idea of when you have your spare time.
Adjust your time allocations.
Now that you have your schedule written up in front of you, you can allocate more or less time to certain things and priorities. For instance, if you find yourself spending far too much time when you get home playing on the computer, or simply browsing the net non-purposefully, you can cut this time down significantly to allow yourself more time to work out. Another example would be when you are sleeping, as it is a true fact that many adults do get far more sleep than they are supposed to, and therefore lose valuable time that they could be using to exercise.
One of the greatest fitness tips that I can give you in this article, is that if you are spending more than around 6-7 hours sleeping per night, you should reduce this and spend that time working out instead. Trust me, not only will working out give you more benefits, but it will also make you feel better during the day.
Make use of your time.
A final tip for this article is that no matter what kind of exercise equipment or pills you use to try to build your muscles, there is nothing more worthwhile than using your time allocated to your workout effectively. This means reducing your rest times between sets, challenging your muscles to greater weights, and generally not wasting time when you should be on your next 10 reps. Many people who go to the gym, spend more time texting people than actually working out, which is by far the worst use of time possible. Get off the phone, turn it off, and get going with your next 10 reps.
To round off this article, here are three main things that you should take away with you, and implement into your schedule.
Less time wasted – Observe every moment that you have available, and whether you are wasting it searching the Internet for no reason, or watching television when you get home, and then highlight it as a time that you should be doing something worthwhile. Allocate the time that you would usually be wasting doing these meaningless tasks, for really getting to grips with your fitness and workout.
Make sure you are not spending more time than is needed – Working out is great, but if you are doing it in a way that means that you have to spend a long time doing it, then it is going to be ineffective. Change this by challenging your muscles, trying out new workouts, and not using a single moment of the time you have working out on your phone!
Adjust the time you spend doing other things – If you are spending 3 hours doing something when in truth 1-2 hours would do, know that not only could this time be spent working out, but also that you can change how much time you allocate to specific things. If you spend 2 hours getting your kids ready to go to school, reduce this time to 1 hour and really utilize the extra hour that you have gained to workout properly. You’ll thank yourself later.
