Staying in ShapeFitness . Training notes
OK, I have a life and I am not an obsessed person, which means …I have a life! I do not live to eat nor do I live to be in perfect shape. Pathetic some may say but they probably don’t have a life. Or they are independently wealthy! Yes we all attend Karate class at least once or twice a week but that isn’t enough.
Balancing job, family, chores, and the a sundry other tasks and commitments in your life and there is precious little time left for sleep let alone a 10 mile run (ok 5 mile run)! But that doesn’t mean we can’t stay in shape we just have to make it part of your day where you can spare a few minutes here and there. Here is what I do through out the day to help stay in shape.
3 sets of 30 second planks (or 30-50 situps)
30-50 lunges (each leg!)
15-30 squats (add a jump when coming up for some additional burn)
On days when I haven’t had any time I do these all before bed as it helps me sleep (I know that doesn’t apply to everyone). I also find doing these before bed seems to help me burn calories when I sleep or at least the scale seems to reflect that in the morning.
Obviously this should not be all the exercise you get but it is a good start to staying/getting toned. If you have access to stairs I like to do 10-15 flights for a quick cardio workout.
Start with this, add in as much of your Karate workout as room/time allows for and you will find that you look forward to your little exercise breaks more with eash day. If you commit to doing this 6 days a week for 3 months it will become part of your daily routine for ever…!
