Training at home
Training from home can be tough. The aim of this article is to help you to create a routine and plan that is best suited to you. The best thing you can do is create a routine, having set days and times to train will be key. Consistency is so important when it comes to training.
If you're lucky enough to have your fair share of home equipment here's how you can structure your week to make sure you're getting the most out of it and not overtraining certain muscle groups.
The first thing you need to do is look at a realistic amount of days that you could train each week, be honest with yourself. Then start to break it down;
2 days a week = Full body x2
3 days a week = Full body x3
4 days a week = Upper body x2, Lower body x2
5 days a week = Push x1, Pull x1, Leg x1, Upper body x1, Lower body x1
6 days a week = Push x2, Pull x2, Legs x2
Those without equipment your session could be laid out similar to the above, or you could alternate between a cardio workout and resistance bodyweight work out each day. For your cardio workout you could run, cycle, walk etc and resistance workout can involve press-ups, squats, sit-ups etc. It's best to try to do things that you enjoy doing. If you enjoy something, you're more likely to stick to it.
Set yourself a target, for me, it's to complete 10k steps a day. This is the daily requirement for everyone, but now being stuck indoors I'll have to make extra effort to get those steps in. Don’t leave it all until the last minute, join in with a 12:30/17:30 Facebook live class, go for a morning walk, create a standing desk. Make a routine and find a place for your target to fit in it. What will your routine look like? What will your target be?
