Skipping a Workout? Just Move | 077

by | Jul 17, 2020

I say it all the time: Something is better than nothing.

I know you have the best intentions and plan to never miss a workout, but stuff happens.

Things come up and sometimes you’d rather hang out with friends and family than go to the gym.

It happens.

In those moments, at least moving a little bit is far better than doing nothing.

When I was 16 and just getting into the world of strength training, I had a difficult time with this concept.

Some days I would push my workout until the evening, not knowing that a fun opportunity with friends or family would arise, and I would do 1 of 2 things: Skip out on the family time to go workout, or stick around for the activities but fill myself with guilt.

Neither were the best options.

What I have learned over the past ten years is that unless you are a professional athlete or are really working on an ambitious goal, fitness needs to fit into your life, not control it.

I’m all about discipline and sticking to commitments.

However in the example above, I should have worked out early in the day when I knew I could.

By putting it off, I was asking for something to get in the way.

When that happens and you don’t want to miss out on the special moments in life with the ones you love, it is O.K to just go for a walk or do a quick set of something and then enjoy the time.

You can get back to your program tomorrow.
