Beat The Struggle: How To Get Back Into A Workout Routine
If you think that your one day break from working out has lasted a few days too long, here’s how you get back into a workout routine again!
Sometimes, even a break from workout becomes necessary. But, what if the break has lasted too long to feel motivated any longer? Along with work and family commitments, it might seem daunting to find time for a full fledged workout routine once the flow has been broken. So, how do you get back to working out? Here are a few tips on how to get back into a workout routine after you have had a long break!
Start With Baby Steps –Set A Goal
It is not possible to achieve your fitness goals if you are being unrealistic about it. You cannot expect your body to perform the same at the gym like it used to before after you have taken a long break from working. What you need to do is set a goal for yourself and a timeline for you to achieve those goals. For example, if you feel like doing push ups on the day you are starting out again., keep that and only that as a part of your major exercise on the first day. Start with some warm up exercises and stretches and then move over to doing push ups. However, remember to have the number of push ups you want to do already set from the get go and be realistic about it.
Have Someone You Trust To Track Your Progress
Have a friend or a family member keep track of your progress. When you are held accountable to someone else, chances are that you will most likely follow through with your goals. If you think that keeping an accountability partner is not possible for you, you can use technology to your advantage as well. There a lot of fitness gadgets in the market that helps you track your progress on a daily basis as well.
Break The Workout Session Into Tiny Parts
Just to keep yourself from feeling monotonous or bored, break the workout session into tiny parts. By that we mean, take a few minutes of break in between changing workout sessions. However, don’t allow your body to cool down before get back into the next part. All in all, get back into the workout routine in your pace and in your own comfort.
