Summer Vacation… NO EXCUSES
It’s been a couple months since I last posted here. I don’t really have a good excuse. My laptop doesn’t work that well so I have been avoiding using it. That very excuse makes this post even more relevant and important.
Since it’s my first post back I wanted to make sure it was something that could help you RIGHT NOW! You don’t need to sign up for anything. You don’t have to go to a gym. You don’t even have to be wearing pants. All you need to do is get up off you computer chair or sitting apparatus and find enough space to lay down.
Ok, so lets talk about excuses again. Working in the fitness industry I get a first hand look at some of the crap people sell themselves in the line of “Reasons” to skip the gym, eat bad or all of the above. Well here is big tip number one: Those “reasons” are actually EXCUSES. They are your way of justifying another day of bad habits. For every excuse I get I can give you multiple examples of someone still getting it done.
“I don’t have time to train” – Well that lady over there has 3 kids, works 12 hour days, volunteers at the gym and is at the gym 3-4 times a week.
“Eating healthy takes to much time, I need to be able to eat fast” – It doesn’t get much faster than per-prepared food in a container. No drive through line required.
I know, I know, shut up and get to the good stuff right?!
What I am here to tell you today is you don’t need hours a day to train, you don’t need tons of weight and you don’t need a huge gymnasium. All you need is your body and some floor space! Oh ya, you’ll need focus too. Lots of focus.
Recently on my Facebook Coaches page Tyler Kearney – Coach I launched a video series called “Phone booth Friday.” The purpose is to give you a workout each week that you can do with just your body weight and not a lot of space. Here is the video:
Let’s talk Digs. Their effectiveness can be altered very easily with a bit of extra effort and focus on your part.
They look and are very simple. Get up and dig for 15 seconds.
Ok. Now lets do them with focus and intent.
1) Squat down until your legs and bum start to feel it.
2) shift your weight towards the front of your foot
3) brace your core
4) maintain good posture.
Try another 15 seconds. Feel the difference?
How much you get from a workout is up to you.
Push ups? As you do them squeeze every muscle you can think of. Especially your butt.
