How To get the most out of an at-home workout
How are your home workouts going? If you are anything like me “distracted” is a word that comes to mind with my first couple of weeks at home. That’s okay, too, but in my heart, I knew I could be doing better so I buckled down and found that these things made my “gym” time more efficient and effective!
1. Put it on your calendar at the time you plan to workout. If you’ve gotten away from this practice I suggest putting it on your work and your personal calendar. This makes it easier to stay accountable to yourself!
2. Make a space that is conducive to working out. The least amount of distractions possible the better! In order to remain efficient at your job, you are in your home office for work. Make your workout space the same! (i.e. no tv, no phone distractions between sets…)
3. Have your equipment in one place! If you’re working live with a trainer or following a written program make sure you know what equipment you need beforehand that way mid-workout you don’t have to go searching for it.
4. Do your warm-ups and cool-downs! These two pieces are just as essential as the main body of work and the last thing you want to do is get injured! If you aren’t sure what to do, ask your trainer!
Treating your workouts as close to what they were when you were going to the gym is a great way to continue to get the most out of your home workouts. If this is something you are struggling with, reach out to your trainer. They are your #1 supporter in this time and want you to continue to have great workouts!
