Once you understand this necessity, physical activity and movement is easier to achieve.
Most people define training as being only working out or sport specific training, which limits drastically your opportunities. Instead, define training as being any activity that improves or maintains your physical capability. You’ll train more and better.
If you train for movements, you’re constraining your training opportunities. Train capabilities so you can train anywhere and keep progressing.
Gyms are actually suboptimal environments. Learn why and don’t feel bad training at the playground or the park anymore.
Training outside in “non-fitness” locations is very efficient but can be socially awkward. Understand why they’re optimal as training environment and use that to go past your awkwardness feelings.
When you’re not training, go for maximal efforts, not efficiency. Ex.: walking with a backpack? Get it off your back and in a chest carry. Now you’re not just walking, you’re training while you walk.
Don’t be constrained by the belief you need an hour (or even 10 mins) to train, and end up not training because you can’t find the time.
Follow these tips and watch both training time and progress take off, without requiring more time in your schedule.
Don’t shoot for a huge change overnight. Build up small habits step by step. You will achieve much more.
