I’ve been weight training for years and I always have to remind myself to take a break. When is the best time? Whenever you feel it needs to happen! We have to give ourselves mental and physical breaks. If not you could become lazy and believe it or not weaker when it comes to training. I’ve been taking two rest days a week this past month. I feel so much better and less stressed. It has also made me feel more motivated to get stronger and leaner. So relax and enjoy the warm weather! Have a blessed weekend.
Train together Stay together! Play together Stay together! We’ve been in a relationship for over 12 years! I cannot believe it’s been this long already. Im thankful to you for always being by my side! These days everyone is always stressing about money and the future. We do this too but our families happiness always comes first. We need each other. I honestly feel that without this person my goals would’ve never happened the way they have. Im truly blessed and thankful.
It’s summer time and everyone is hitting the beach and going on vacation. We’re eating out more and enjoying some adult beverages from time to time. Which is fine by the way. Sometimes we find it hard to stay in our typical eating patterns when enjoying summer fun. I know I do. I think the best way to counter this is to Lift a little longer and a little more cardio. I extend my workouts by about 30 minutes and I mix up my routine a little bit. This does help keep my body fat in check. I like to go for a jog or long walk with my wife on cooler days. Hiking and boxing are great ways to stay lean in the summer also. Remember to drink your water! I have some full body workouts for you below. I do these more often in the summer. Just to stay in shape and maintain while on the road.
Living a healthy lifestyle can be difficult for some people these days. Especially when you’re a parent and you’re trying to balance work and family. A lot of my peers say I just don’t have time. We always have time to get into shape you just have to dedicate yourself 30 to 45 minutes a day. Also continuing your routine weekly is very important. Consistency is key! The gym is not a necessity. I prefer to workout from home mostly because no one is in my way. Some people struggle with this. They say they lack motivation. I get it! I have a list of things I do that help me when I workout from home.
I turn on Rocky or another movie with martial arts. This is a big help for me. Motivational movies or tv shows help a lot!
2. I switch up my routine. On chest day I do pushups or other chest exercises besides bench press.
3. I put on earphones and listen to music or books, speakers that I like etc.
