Pencil workouts into your daily planner the same way you do dinner with friends or that important business meeting. This will help hold you accountable. It’ll also force you to choose a specific time to get your sweat on, making it more likely you’ll stick to it.
Break up workouts throughout the day
Can’t carve out a full 30 minutes or an hour of exercise time in one go? Opt for shorter bouts of exercise throughout the day instead. The latest science suggests that several short exercise bursts provide the same health and fitness benefits as a similar amount of exercise done in one longer workout — and, in some cases, reap even more rewards.
Try a quick cardio circuit in the morning, a brisk stroll during your lunch hour and an after-dinner strength session. There’s no need to do it all at once.
Don’t let traveling derail your effortsbike rental
Being away from your normal routine doesn’t mean your healthy efforts need fall to the wayside. Jog a few miles on the hotel gym’s treadmill, scope out a local barre studio and pop in for a class, take a walking tour of the city, rent a bike and explore or even do a quick workout in your hotel room.
Try these resistance band exercises; they make for a quick workout, and a band takes up little space in your bag, making it perfect for when you’re on the go.
Add variety to your routine
Keep your muscles guessing by cross training and trying different workouts or tweaking your usual routine. You’ll work new muscles and beat boredom while trying something new. Also, studies show that you’re more likely to stick with your daily exercise routine if you switch up your workouts. Are you a CrossFit junkie? Stretch out at a yoga class. Is running more your style? Try adding some speed intervals throughout your usual route.
