If you’re on a hit-and-miss schedule when it comes to fitness, it’s time to make a regular workout schedule. It’s particularly important if you’re working out at home, rather than attending a class that would automatically put you on a schedule. Not only does putting a workout on your schedule make it as important as any other appointment, it also ensures you carve the time out to do it.
Pick a time that’s best for you based on your present schedule and energy level.
Both your energy level and schedule play an important role in when you’ll workout most effectively. If your mornings are chaotic and already stressful, aim for a time that’s better, such as lunch hour or after work. Your energy level also plays a role in how well you’ll do when you workout. Make the workout coincide with when you’re apt to perform the best.
Don’t negate after work because you feel wiped out from stress.
Your energy level should be based on how you feel on the weekend, not based on the stress from work. In fact, some people choose to schedule their workout at lunch time or after work to burn off the hormones of stress and boost their energy. You’ll feel great after working out, thanks to the increased circulation that sends oxygen and nutrient laden blood to all parts of the body. You’ll also benefit from the hormones that exercise triggers that make you feel good. It’s one reason busy executives workout during the day and often have a gym dedicated exclusively to the management team.
You can identify the type of workout you’ll be doing and get a full workout.
Not only should you schedule your workout, you should add information, such as full body workout, strength training or flexibility training to your schedule. That way you’re ensuring that you’re working on all types of fitness and all muscles in your body. You need endurance, strength, balance and flexibility training to ensure you are at your fittest.
- When you don’t have a schedule, you’re functioning on memory. If you’re like most people, that memory gets blurred after a while and you find you’re doing too much cardio and not enough flexibility or constantly working on just one body part.
- Scheduling a workout helps you get busy faster. All you have to do is check your appointment with the workout and you’ll know what you’re doing. You’ll never have to worry about what you should do next.
- Keeping a schedule helps prevent burnout and gets you working out quicker. You’ll always be ready when it’s time. It helps you not only track your goals, but also work toward them.
