It’s been four weeks now since the lives of most Americans have been turned upside down. If you’re anything like me, most things have changed. Work is closed. Businesses branded as “essential” are the only ones open. My daughters are home from daycare. My need for a haircut grows by the second (pun intended) …
Yes, many things have changed indeed …
But there are those things which haven’t changed. The deep-seated need to connect with my Creator and is as strong as ever. The desire to stay connected with my family and friends is there as well. My hunger to stimulate my mind … to grow, to learn …through podcasts and lectures and books remains.
And of course, I need to move my body …
I find it interested that the secret of getting and staying fit during a pandemic is actually the same as during our normal day-to-day lives. It’s very simple really.
Create a fitness routine and stick to it.
Establish a weekly routine in the areas of resistance training, cardiovascular conditioning, and supportive nutrition. No gym? No equipment? That’s okay. Use what you have. There have never been more home workouts at your fingertips than right now. Find a few that interest you and get started. I’ll give you my current routine to get you thinking.
- Full-body resistance training Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
- Cardiovascular conditioning Tuesday and Thursday.
- No sweets Monday-Thursday.
It’s really that easy. Do what you can, when you can, however, you can. But start today!
