Creating a Workout Schedule
Most people can agree that building a schedule, for any tasks in life, can help things run a lot smoother. Schedules help you prioritize, keep you on track with your goals, and provide a routine.
If you don’t incorporate your weekly workout into your schedule, it is easy to create excuses for yourself not to do them Leaving it up to chance means you’ll usually end up skipping it after a tiring afternoon when you could have gone in the morning. In most cases, skipping your workout leads to regret and a set back from your goals.
After you consider when to workout, also try to plot out what you want to target that week. Perhaps a busier week only allows for shorter, lighter workouts. Planning ahead will decrease the risk of overworking yourself, which again leads to skipping the workout altogether.
Lastly, it is important to define realistic goals for yourself. Much like your daily life, workouts can be ever-changing. If you find yourself bored on the treadmill, try switching to a bike. Creating a Workout Schedule will help you look forward to it, and you will achieve your end result a lot faster.
