I’ve been trying to get myself into better shape as of late. I’ve been working on my diet, adding cardio to my routine, and eating healthier. It feels like I’m only going at it when I’m not getting results. I’m starting to notice some changes in my body, and I’m wondering if it’s because I’ve started to eat healthier and not exercise as much.
You know what makes me feel better? Exercise. Ive always been a gym rat, and Ive always wanted to be fit so I could be a part of the fitness revolution. Ive always wanted to be the guy who gets out of bed, puts on that gym suit, and goes. Ive wanted to put my body through some pain and suffering to get it ready for the next big thing. But now Im only going to get results when im actually doing something.
Some people think that the best workout is simply stretching and moving your body, but I’m not one of them. I like to get my body moving both mentally and physically, and that doesn’t mean you have to do it with weights.
The best workout Ive ever done is a few years ago. One of those sessions was a long 15-minute workout that ended with me doing a plank. I remember the smell of the sweat and the feeling of my muscles bunching up after the last rep. I remember thinking, This is what is going to get me through the rest of this. I can do this. I can do this. I can do this. I can do this. I can do this.
After that workout was over and I was sore, my trainer came over and gave me a few suggestions. One was to add a few extra reps to each set so they would burn out more quickly. Another suggestion was to do a few more sets of five and not get bored with them. He said that the more sets you do, the more you’ll get to know your body and what actually works. Then I did some more reps and felt a bit sore too.
It turns out that a lot of people don’t know what the definition of boredom is. In our study of over 2,500 students, only 15% of the students were bored, while 63% were relaxed.
In our study of over 2,500 students, only 15 of the students were bored, while 63 were relaxed. So while boredom is a pretty self-explanatory feeling, I think people may be a bit more willing to admit to being bored when it comes to exercise.
One of my friends said, “So I like to exercise but I’m more bored when I’m not doing it.” I couldn’t agree more. I’m a huge fan of what I call gym workouts because they are literally just a series of exercises. They require no equipment and they are usually short. That’s the beauty of it.
I love the idea of just a series of exercises. I would love to do a gym workout I wrote about but I’m not a professional writer. I’d love to do a workout like I described but I don’t know how to write it. So I can’t really show you how to do it. I’m sure there are plenty of other ways to accomplish the same results.
That was Evl’s pre workout. It was his routine. The workouts are easy to put together and they are usually done in a couple of hours. They are not a lot, but they do work. It’s not like you have to set them up for a few hours and then have to break them up into smaller pieces for the next day.
