How to Get Fit and Successfully Workout (A Thread):
I am not an expert. I am relatively fit and have not missed a week of working out since high school. That’s all the qualifications I got for ya.
1. Ignore 90% of what you hear about the subject. Especially anything new involving plans / products / services. There are no shortcuts, it must be earned.
2. Sustainability is really the only thing that matters. Do P-90x, insanity, etc whatever you want, if you cannot keep it up for years and years it means nothing. A typical workout should be short & sweet. There is no reason to have to workout for more than 30 mins.
3. Do not waste time. If working out is to be sustainable then gym time is not socializing time. Anyone can spare 30 mins a day not 1.5 hours. Stop working out with other people unless absolutely necessary.
4. The less equipment the better. Machines are a waste. You need nothing to get fit. (You can do burpees with no clothes). A pull-up bar is the one caveat. Then free weights should come next to build muscle. You can get extremely fit through burpees alone.
5. Do something every day. The goal is to get to a point where not working out feels weird / uncomfortable. The beauty of habit.
6. Avoid the extremes (unless your personality is inclined to it). Do not do crazy, cringe-worthy programs. Do not do a highly restrictive diet. That is counter to sustainability. Cut out lots of carbs / sugar and viola, you’ve got a sustainable diet.
7. Most importantly. Do what you LOVE. If you love lifting weights, go. If you love running, do it. Swimming, sports, anything. The coelescense of enjoyment, habit, and a decent amount if rigor is the sweet spot.
