I have a very good trainer friend who says that you only need to start with 15 minutes every day and to be honest if thats all the time you have great use it wisely.
Sometimes I find once I have started on the 15 minutes I just keep going as the energy to start was all I needed. MIndset is a massive thing. Sometimes if you think it is only 15 minutes " I will make it more intense" and some days that is enough and other days it is just the starter of something bigger.
First write a list of all your favourite movement activities then add walking... This list might be dancing, squats , skipping , running, weights,let the list go on to at least 3 activities. Get a stopwatch or just a clock and start 20 secs. do that 1st item on the list for 20 secs. have a 10 sec rest (you can get an app or set it on your phone) ... do it for 4 minutes thats 8 times... You have done your first tabata.
Pick your next activity and repeat for 4 minutes then repeat that again ... there you go 12 minutes( I am sure you took about 1 minute rest in between.)
This Type of thing on a daily basis will not always be intense and sometimes you can just say I will go for a 15 minute walk and doing it every day is all that is required, it is a start.
I have numerous programs in my training plans for both my Personal training and my Group Challenges. If you would like further information please do not hesitate to contact me . Or forward this email to a friend.
