How to Get Back to Your Indoor Workout Routine

How to Get Back to Your Indoor Workout Routine

Getting back to your workout is hard, but rebuilding your routine after a long pause is harder. It takes a lot of strength, focus, and motivation to start working on yourself again. But it doesn’t mean it’s impossible. To begin, you just have to take that very first step.  

Start with a fresh attitude and simple goal.

Always think of every action toward getting back to your workout as steps, rather than the whole staircase. Take each one slowly, not hurriedly. And remember, don’t skip because you would only trip. I recommend starting out with small or short-term goals and short duration of workout per day before doing it at a faster, more progressive pace. 
Example: 1st week 20 minutes cardio per day. Skip the chocolate and drink more water. 

Mix it up.

Have fun! Schedule a workout in the morning, afternoon, or evening, whatever works for you. What’s important is you create time for it. Also, try incorporating light workouts after a couple of stretching or yoga sessions.You can do your workout at home with a friend, the next by yourself, yoga the next day, and do HIIT after that. Getting into a consistent workout routine does not mean you have to follow a certain course. It’s entirely up to you what you love to work on and what type of exercise you feel like doing.

Remember the basics.

Less is more. Simple works. Getting back into working out can be overwhelming, so it’s important to do it in stages. Start with a warmup to allow your body to prepare itself and make sure to cool down after your workout. Have rest days. Being consistent does not mean not taking any breaks. Rest is important for the body to recover after a strenuous activity. That’s just how it works. Respect your body by taking the time to rest before you work out again. 

Prepare and act.

Once you know what to do, your goals, and the perfect pace for you, you’re good to go. The moment of truth lies in your action and how you convert your plans into a reality. Create workouts, list them down, adjust and make time for them, take a break, and enjoy the journey.
