It's playoff football time!
I realize a lot of you may be tied up at home this weekend, whether with the kids or just by choice watching the great playoff football games going on this weekend.
I wanted to give you a another "Weekend Warrior" at home workout you could do anywhere, anytime.
However, before I do that I wanted to give you one piece of advice.
It builds off of yesterdays post about accountability.
In my opinion, and that stems from working with hundreds of clients, an at home workout needs to be a supplement to your entire plan.
I can count on one hand the number of people I know that workout consistently at home successfully.
Now don't get me wrong...
I love a quick 15-20 minute burner when I can't get to the gym, or I'm snowed in.
I'm talking about the people that just want to do a treadmill or some DVDs at home as their entire workout plan.
If you can do it, great.
But here's what we found...
When you're at home, your mind is on home stuff.
One of the biggest benefits of working out is escaping from the daily madness...a stress reliever.
If you're at home, you're in the same surroundings as all the stress so you never actually escape it.
Secondly, you don't push yourself.
As I mentioned yesterday...
Fitness is not easy.
I'm not talking the physical challenges.
I'm talking the mental and emotional challenges of stickig with it.
When you're at home you'll have a million and one excuses to cut it short or not to do more than you really can.
When possible, get out of your house and you'll find your workouts will come up to the next level.
I'm not here to bash working out at home.
In fact, I encourage it as a great way to get some extra reps in when the schedule is not working out or whatver.
Just make sure it's not ALL you do.
You hear me?
Here's this weekends workout.
The name of each exercise has a link to a video demonstration if you need it.
Complete all exercises for the amount of reps assigned.
Rest 1-2 minutes.
Repeat 3-5+ rounds as your ability allows.

Give that a go this weekend and let me know how it goes.

Dedicated to Your Success,
PS: GO PATS!
