Your long workouts may just be the reason you aren’t losing weight.
Man, I can’t believe I’m actually saying that! After all, I’m a long distance triathlete and a personal trainer in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Triathletes are not my clients. My ladies are not triathletes. So of course, I’m not going to train them as such.
What’s different about my workouts is that they are shorter. And there’s a very good reason why I keep them short…
I want you to finish them!
I want you to build workout habits!
I want you to get those wins that keep you coming back for more!
Shorter workouts over a long period of time are far more effective and kinder on the body than longer, more insane workouts.
If you have a busy and stressful life then the worst thing you can do is add a long workout to your day.
Because long workouts are very stressful, they trigger large amounts of the stress hormones Adrenaline and Cortisol; two hormones that are very demanding on your body’s resources.
In a world where most of you are already stressed out, adding additional stress (via long duration exercise) to the body is a recipe for disaster!
Harder and longer workouts do have their place when training for specific events but they are not sustainable every day.
The secret to getting strong, lean, fit and healthy is by your small daily habits.
So here’s where you start:
How many workouts can you get in this week?
Imagine how much stronger you would be if you weren’t skipping workouts because you were too tired, didn’t have the time or were sick or injured.
One final tip 👉🏾 Start with a 5 minute workout. If you are feeling energized then repeat it a few more times. Remember, not all days are created equal.
But most importantly just get the 5 minutes done and then pat yourself on the back and get pumped up to exercise again the following day.
