Make a Workout Fit Your Needs

By Tom Herrin

Many seem to believe that the way to go when working out is to follow a set plan.  If it worked for some celebrity, or friend, surely it's what fits the needs of everyone.  In some cases it works, in others, people end up beating themselves up to follow the program.  When the occasion arises in which they are in a crunch for time, they may struggle to decide what they can sacrifice in their schedule and still do their workout.  In reality, assessing their own personal objectives for exercise may paint a different picture.  Those sessions need not be as long as often perceived in order to support better health.

Cut Where Needed

There is really nothing wrong with cutting parts of a workout.  The question may be asked as to what are they trying to achieve?  If it is building muscles to the extreme, then the longer sessions may fit.  If they are trying to maintain good health and keep the body functioning well, they may opt for greater intensity in a shorter period of time.  Several studies have shown that people can achieve good overall health by seriously shortening the workout and alternating between seconds of high intensity and minutes of moderation.  What may have started out as 45 minutes may be shortened to 10 or so by doing this.

Use Breaks Better at Work

For those who are looking for just a few things to boost their health, they may do a few things at lunch or on break.  Climbing a few flights of stairs can do wonders.  Another thing could be making a couple of brisk laps around the building.  Either of these could likely be done in 10 minutes or so.  This provides exercise and frees up time later in the day as well.

Use Your Imagination

There is nothing better than your own creative abilities, at times.  We often know our own limits on both physical activity and time.  Designing our own personal workout routine that fits our time demands may help us to stay in some kind of shape while still making time for many of the other things on our schedule.  Understanding ourselves and setting goals for activity can help us to achieve our purpose.  If we have expressed those in a good set of goals, we will be well on our way to experiencing success.
