GET IN WHAT YOU CAN!

Exercise Full Body, Motivation Add comments

Ok so I haven’t been writing for a while and it’s all my fault I will admit it.

I don’t believe in excuses only change. We all have the ability to make excuses but change is a whole another bag of reality. When you make excuses you only miss out on your true potential. So with that being said I am going to make a effort to write more.

So the focus of today’s post GET IN WHAT YOU CAN is simple do what you can to get a workout in. Lately it’s been hard to get in my workouts life happens work, family time and sleep is important. My workouts sometimes take a back seat to these things but finding the time to keep up with my workouts is also important. Today was no different; I was up to 12:30 working and set the alarm to 5:00 am to get up and workout. Getting out of bed was hard with only four and a half hours of sleep. Four and half hours of sleep is not something I would advise for anyone to get, but if your like me and hate not getting your workout in I guess you get it 😉 . The other issue I have is getting to work early which means I have to catch the 6:40 leaving me an hour and twenty minutes to get in a workout, shower, get ready and get to the train. I hate working out being stressed for time that’s why I generally wake up at 4 or 4:30 am with lumie.

The clock is ticking, mentally and literally for me.

5:03 AM I actually get out of my bed I shuffle down stairs, my oldest son is up already which freaks me out because he is never up that early.

5:08 AM I grab an energy drink and head downstairs and the mental alarm goes off.

I have no idea what workout I am going to do one of the biggest pieces of advice I give everyone is have a plan when you get into the gym.

5:10 AM I look through my workout app (fitness builder) for a workout. I needed a workout something short 30 minutes, full body or split that is at least 3 days. I will supplement 2 days of circuit training in later.

5:16 AM The workout I found I believe it is from Mens Health 3 in 1 workout. I have a collection of workouts on my FB app so it makes it easier to switch things up.

5:54 AM Knock the work out in 38 minutes flat.

6:00 AM In the shower

6:20 AM Out the door making the 6:40 AM train.

So here is the deal – How I got this workout in.

1. I chose a work out that only had 5 exercises the workout below is actually 4. Repeated the one exercise twice. 

2. Rest time between exercises was 30 seconds. You won’t believe how much time shortening your rest times saves.

3. Intensity of the lift when your short on time you got to push yourself so lift a little heavier.

Below is day one of the workout.
