How To Hack Your Daily Workout

If you’re like most people, you probably wish you could work out more. It’s easy to be complacent when it comes to your workout regimen. You buy all the equipment, get a gym membership, and then you only end up working out 2 or 3 times a month if that.

It’s understandable. We’re all so incredibly busy, so we tell ourselves that we’ll work out when we have some time. The problem…we’ll we never have the time. There’s always something to do, whether it’s work, sleep, fun, there’s always something you would rather be doing (or need to be doing) instead of working out.

If you want to work out more diligently, waiting till you have extra time to get in a workout is a bad idea. You’ll find that making time to workout or incorporating it into the things you already do is a much more effective way to operate.

For instance, instead of taking the bus all the way to work or driving, you could walk all or part of the way. Instead of taking the elevator, you could take the stairs. Instead of sitting on the couch and watching TV, you can get in a quick, light workout while enjoying your favorite shows. Yes, incorporating your workout into these activities may result in a slightly longer commute or a slightly less enjoyable binging session, but tying exercise into things that you already do is probably the most effective way to get in a workout regularly. You can still hit the gym when you get a free moment, but you’ll also get in a little cardio on the days where you can’t spend an hour or two at the gym. It’s a lot harder to make excuses too, since incorporating the workout  doesn’t mean shifting your focus.
