13 Strategies to Stay Fit During Stressful Times (1 of 13)
The road to real success happens when we stop trying to be perfect. You know how it goes. Life goes a little off track. And the pity party begins.
"Well, I can't do the prescribed workout today, so I might as well not exercise at all." This kind of all-or-nothing thinking enters all of our lives from time to time.
Use each day to make the best possible choice given to your limitations. One strategy that does work, breaking up the training over the course of the day. For example: Spend 5-10 minutes foam rolling and stretching in the morning, take a 15 minute brisk walk at lunch, and do 20 minutes of training anywhere else in the day – maybe an actual weight lifting session, maybe just some bodyweight work of pushups, pull-ups, plank variations, squat and lunge variations.
It's hard sometimes to find a whole hour. But anybody can manage 10 minutes.
