Why, even the most "lazy" exercise is better than none
Health / / December 19, 2019
One of the most frequent questions dictated by our laziness: whether to go to the gym, where supposedly there are no forces for a full-fledged training, or miss a class, spending an evening on the couch? In fact, the answer to this question is always the same.
If you go to the gym for the wife (husband), parents, children, relatives or followers in Instagram - do whatever you want. If you are moving to the target and want to stay true to yourself - do the maximum that you can, with what you have, and where you were. This is the golden rule of discipline is useful to apply in all areas of life.
In sport, as in business, it is very important to form good habits, the strength of which can not be overestimated. At Charles Duhigg (Charles Duhigg) book "force of habit». Despite the fact that it was written by a journalist, specializing in business, the leitmotif of the publication is applicable to all areas of life, including sports.
The idea is to at all times remain in a certain rhythm and change bad habits for good. In this case, a good habit - regular visits to the gym or training section, bad - skipping classes.
Once you start to miss a workout, you are replacing a good bad habit. With each pass to skip workouts over and over again it becomes easier, and self-control weakened.
Suppose, for a full body workout you today is not strong enough: you ate poorly, tired at work, stood all day in traffic jams or not got to the gym for some other reasons. Then it makes sense to hold a training session at home - overall, an easy, circular - or just go out for a jog.
Take a dumbbell, dumbbells, or, if neither one nor the other, five-liter canister with water. Find any bar and parallel bars - if in the yard there is no playground, walk to the nearest school stadium. Take a few trisetov consisting of simple exercises:
- emission weights - 4 sets of 10 repetitions;
- pull-ups on the bar - 4 sets of 8 reps;
- push-ups on the bars - 4 sets of 10 repetitions.
Rest after each triseta for fifteen minutes. Do not consider this or similar training as a full replacement for one of the pages of your training plan.
Make your "spare" program, to which they would have recourse in rare cases, pass a full training.
Agree with yourself that you can miss three month training for legitimate reasons, provided that replace them with alternative training. Later, reduce absenteeism to two, then - up to one month.
The hardest part of "lazy" training - start the ball rolling. Once you find yourself on the sports field, the action will go on inertia. Same thing with a full workout in the gym many novice athletes are lazy is not so much to train, how to get to a gym. Once you are inside its walls, the very atmosphere of "rocking" will not let you relax.
In sport, as in any other case where the result is necessary, the system is important. Without it, the movement towards your goal to extend over many months of inactivity during which, most likely, will be very embarrassing.
