Are you stuck at your desk all day long? Most people working nowadays have a sedentary job that affects their health. The basic 9 to 6 routine leaves them lethargic and weak. There are many articles online that talk about how people only want to stay fit and visit the gym to lift. They do not take into account the people’s lives, jobs, and other leisure activities. Most of the articles that you read online are written by trainers or fitness enthusiasts or someone who works in the fitness world. What they do miss, however, is that there are people who have office jobs, those who work 9 to 5 in hectic environments and those who do not get the time to stay fit.
Customize your work out as per your schedule
Those who have worked out in a gym will scorn at a three day or four days work out but it is the most practical approach for those who work. If you design your work out for six days and miss one or two days you lose your goals. If you plan your work out like a college guy or a fitness enthusiast then you are more likely to lose days and weeks of workouts as they are not customized as per your needs. And the problem arises when you do not inform your trainer of your lifestyle. The trainer will train you like a person who has all the time in the world. But if you notify them of your schedule and work, they may chalk out a suitable program.
Don’t push yourself if you can’t
When you are not physically ready then it is not advisable to push your body to the limits or do reps till failure. Unless you work out regularly sitting behind a desk can make you weak and the two or three days that you visit a gym is strengthen the body and not to push it till it breaks. Sometimes pushing excess weights can prove to be more detrimental than beneficial.
No need to work on all the exercises
There are many exercises and its variations, but a busy person like you should not opt to do all the exercises. People who have the time work on compound and isolation exercise alike but those who are running short of time can focus primarily on compound exercises such as deadlifts, bench presses, squats, etc.
Don’t miss stretching
Just because you are running late doesn’t mean that you skip warm-ups and stretching, these are essential parts of the workout routine.
