The start of the week is a great action trigger to get your goals moving forward in the right direction.
Pick the biggest thing that is holding you back the most. Why the biggest? because after you have accomplished it the rest is easier and you can use your new found commitment on the hardest task.
It could be:
– Limiting alcohol to 1 night a week
– Replacing all non-healthy snacks with nuts and yoghurts
– Challenging yourself in the gym more and getting out of your comfort zone
– Trying a new form of exercise
Try this simple challenge:
– 1 Press-up then stand up
– 2 press-ups then stand up
Repeat this pattern with increasing press-ups until you can go no higher.
Then add 2 sets AMRAP (as many reps as possible) of press-ups to the beginning of all your workouts for the next month and then retest.
If you are new to exercise why not try this simple walking progression. All you have to do is walk (no running) as far as you can in 15 minutes. Repeat this 3-4 times a week for a month. Every walking workout try to beat your previous distance (if on a treadmill). Also try to increase the incline when you have reached your top walking speed.
The secret to this workout is intensity. It is hard enough to stoke your metabolism but short enough to have no excuse not to do it. Some of you will see it on paper and think it looks easy, try it first and let us know how you got on.
