Training plan for the next 2 months - November 13th 2020, 11:59 AM

Dear TeenHelpers,

I've neglected my physical condition during the lockdown and I can already feel my body protesting against hunching in front of the computer every day. Since I haven't exercised regularly for a long time it's really hard to motivate myself and so I decided to create a thread on here. I'm gonna post here saying whether I've completed each planned training or not - I think I'm gonna be more motivated - I'd feel silly posting each day saying I haven't exercised, so I'll have to do it
The perfect plan for one week is: 3x training, 2x stretching. If it's too much I'm gonna replace one training with stretching. I adjusted training days to my current work/uni schedule.
My goal isn't losing weight but getting fitter for the sake of my health. I've always dreamed of being able to do the split, so I'd love to achieve that too. For now - 8 weeks. We'll see what happens next.
Wish me the best of luck
xx S

That's great. Making a plan is the first step. Start with a small goal the first day so you don't get overwhelmed and give up. Maybe the first day just 30 min of stretching only. You got this. Keep going.

You’ve got this! Maybe you can look up some fun exercises on google so it doesn’t become too repetitive. It may help you stay with it.

Fitness - Youtube vids, I just switch between different types of training. Stretching - I attend online classes with a belly dance teacher I've known for a long time. She's super flexible and conducts stretching classes as well.

I completely understand you, I have the same goal myself. I used to think that you can't force yourself, do something, you only need to do what you like, but it won't work out that way. Sport for me is not something cool, it's just what you need. You need to fight your laziness

I forgot to post here last Monday. I didn't complete the training plan last week because of Christmas preparations, but I did exercise. Same with this week - I've only managed two trainings instead of three + stretching, but it's okay because I didn't have time during the holidays. I'm coming back home tomorrow and I'm going to complete the whole routine next week.
I'm not finding them easier, but I hope I will soon.

Your exercise plan is good!

You might be interested in Chloe Ting. She's got some excellent, free, online workout programs. I've done one and it's been great.

I still think it's absolutely amazing that you're keeping up with it regardless of the holiday season!

Someone that works with me always says this: "It's a sprint, not a marathon."

Don't push yourself too hard, as much as you may want to. Listen to your body.

It's been hard for me to continue exercising after Christmas/New Year's. My motivation has lowered, but I hope to get back to training tomorrow/on Thursday.

Take all the time you need. The holidays are rough on a lot of people. Don't force yourself to train again if you're not ready.

I went running in the forest today. I'd never tried running before, but I wanted to give it a go and even bought proper shoes (I'm gonna use them for fitness anyways, because my old ones are worn-out). I wasn't able to run a long distance, but I hadn't expected it anyway. I'll try to run regularly and we'll see how it goes.

I've gone running four times in total since my last post.

What's more, I've bought a sports watch that I had really wanted. It came yesterday and today I'm going to try it out. I'll either do some cardio or some muscle-strengthening exercises.
