We are in a very busy season at our house. Exercise has definitely taken a back seat. I wanted to move forward with reviewing Fit2B Advancing (Again). But as great as those workouts are, I just don’t have the time for long workouts right now. Thus my new schedule, Fit2B Quick. The goal is go get a decent workout most days of the week in a half an hour or less (mostly less). I recognize the benefit of focusing on longer workouts for endurance sake. But right now I’m moving forward under the oft quoted philosophy that something is better than nothing.
2 days cardio
2 days weights or strength
1 day full body, yoga or Pilates (basically almost any workout from Fit2B at the proper length).
Bonus: one day core work & one day stretching or relaxing.
When life is very hectic and I’m under lots of stress, exercise always seems to be the first thing dropped from my schedule. (Ironic, I know since exercise helps me to maintain my stress levels). But I’m trying to battle that tendency. I try to knock out a quick workout in the morning while the kids are eating breakfast. (Ideally before they get up, but that isn’t often the case around here). Another good option is to tackle your workout right after dinner or after the kids go to bed. When something is really important, sometimes the only thing we can do is squeeze it in.
