Let’s see if we can support each other’s efforts to stay on track.
One thing that helps me is information. The more I understand, the more likely my decisions will be good.
So, what happens if you stop exercising?
If a couple of days pass without aerobic exercise, you’re just fine. But, if your rest period extends weeks, your progress fades. Research shows that the benefits of aerobic training are lost within two weeks to three months. Hmmmm… Maybe it would be better to stay focused, yes?
Let’s say there are a bunch of reasons for not being able to put in as much time at the gym as you’d like. No need to despair!
Here’s the deal à it’s better to exercise less often than with less intensity. Maybe your routine was 5 times per week. Reducing to 2 or 3 times per week will prevent having to start from square one again! But, when you are exercising, EXERCISE!
