Friday, June 29

Guess what? It was hot today. How many of you decided not to workout because it was hot? I only ask this because I want us to start thinking about why we train and follow any fitness routine. Don't let outside influences derail your program. It's hard, I know, but sometimes it's hot and sometimes it's cold and sometimes it rains and sometimes you feel tired. Should I go on? There is always an excuse available if you want one. Don't take this as me saying you have to workout every day. That's not it at all. Your body needs rest and recovery time, and only you know when those times occur. If you are not taking recovery days, you will not get stronger, faster, lose weight, etc. Your body will increase cortisol production due to the over training and you will begin storing fat and you will feel tired and lethargic. You also open yourself to overuse injuries, which make that one extra day of working out seem dumb compared to the weeks you might miss while healing.

Listen to your bodies and put yourself on some kind of schedule. Your fitness routine should be based on a program that is going to get you to your goals. Don't let life get in the way of your health and fitness.
