Formulating your workout plan should have began yesterday, and you should be approaching this Monday with great enthusiasm, hitting your Monday hard and setting yourself up very nicely for the week!
Planning a week of workouts is imperative, rather than making it up as you go along and ending up missing workouts often.
You have 168 hours a week to deal with to make at least 3 workouts a week happen.
Take 37 hours a week off for an average working week and you are down to 121 hours.
Let’s say you have 8 hours a night sleep, and you need to subtract another 56 hours a week off.
So we are now down to 65 hours a week left to fit in a minimum of 3 workouts.
A lot of individuals I train have 1,2, 3, 4 even 5 children, so that takes a lot of time up.
Many I train work over 37 hours a week, those in business and those who have high responsibility jobs.
The funny thing is that those who have the kids AND the business or high pressure jobs, are exactly the ones who never miss a workout!! THEY ARE ACUTELY AWARE that they need to perform at their best, they need greater energy levels than most, and the self-confidence and self-esteem that being in shape brings, gives them so much in whatever they do in life, and being in shape goes hand in hand with being who they are, how they perform and the results and happiness they now have in their lives!
So if we say on average we have a maximum of 65 hours to do 3 workouts a week, and bear in mind we can do an awful lot in just 30 minutes, then committing one and a half hours to keep yourself in shape really isn’t a lot at all!
All depends where your priorities are, are you going to get in shape now and keep it up for life, or perhaps you have had a break from training because you haven’t got time, but you can see from this illustration that you DEFINITELY CAN fit it in, all you have to do is manage your time A LOT BETTER and you will very soon be enjoying the vast benefits that exercising brings!!
