How To Exercise 312 Times A Year
I can safely recommend this to anyone. It is softball time folks. It is mostly everyday, so you want to avoid cumulative damage of any kind. Get a trainer that works with you. I use a Qi Gong inspired acupuncturist trainer to completely reverse age related litament failure. This is unique for now and you have zero chance of going this. Learn to do plenty of stretching.
What is important is to simply learn patience. As long as you are going the right direction you are good.
Doing this will allow you to quietly progress and you may even end up with a six pack while hardly breaking a real sweat.. .
How To Exercise 312 Times A Year
Choosing a routine is easy. Sticking to it, less so. Here's a few tips to get you started.
I used to be a chubby kid. Most people thought that was cute. But it got out of hand when I was in my early teens.
age 15 I weighed 230 pounds (105 kg). I was fat. Three years later, I
weighed 55 pounds less and I was bench pressing my old weight.
truth is that being overweight sucks. And if you want to change, you
need a reason. At that age, I wanted to impress girls. So I dropped the
weight. It was surprisingly simple once I put my mind to it.
I stayed in good shape until I finished college in 2010. But after
that, I put on weight again. I started working a lot, traveling,
drinking, eating unhealthy, and I worked out very irregularly.
about three years ago I was a tired, unfocused, and lazy 27-year old
idiot with a beer belly. I decided to change. And it took me more than
two years to build a solid exercise habit.
Why do you want to exercise every day? How about more energy and focus? Or looking and feeling better? I don’t know why, but people have a health fetish these days.
get it, boys and girls. Stop showing your incredibly muscular gluteus
maximus on Instagram! They should call that app
Anyway, we get it. Daily exercise has benefits. We know the why. In this article, I’ll tell you how I formed an (almost) daily exercise routine.
1. Think Of A Reason
let’s start with the cliché. But this is actually very important. When I
was a teenager, I wanted to impress girls. Three years ago, I didn’t
have to impress my girlfriend, but I wanted to have more energy so I
could be more productive.
No reason? No change.
It can be as simple as, “I don’t want to be that person who is out of breath after three flights of stairs.”
make something up and believe in it. If you want to exercise daily and
you have no idea why, you’ll think this when it gets tough: “What the
fuck am I doing.” That’s the end of your daily exercise habit.

2. Exercise DAILY At The Same Time
is where I messed up before. Have you ever said, “I’m going to work out
three times a week.” And could never find the time? Your brain is
“Should I go Monday, Wednesday, Friday? How about, Monday, Tuesday, Friday? Or how about Sunday, Wednesday, Friday?”
going every single day. There you go. I’ve solved that problem for you.
Now you have more brainpower to work on useful things.
don’t have to wake up at 4 AM to exercise. I prefer to go around the
same time every day. For me, that’s around lunchtime.
Pick a time that’s best for you and stick to it. That’s how it becomes a habit.

3. Work Out On Low Intensity
we’re trying to build a daily exercise habit. We’re not trying to
become an Instagram model. We’re trying to work out every day so we
improve the quality of our life.
You don’t have to kill yourself every time you hit the gym or go for a run.
took me a loooong time to realize. You can become fit and look good by
working out on low intensity every day. Plus, you have fewer chance to
I’ve had serious back issues since I was 16. I played
a lot of sports and worked out hard for years. But since I’m exercising
every day, doing stretches and yoga moves, I’m 98% pain-free. That
other 2% is credited to my idiocy, which probably will never go away.
now and then I still push myself hard. I’ll put on too-heavy weights on
my squats or deadlifts. And then I’ll go spinning or running on the
next day. Result? Back pain.
But that doesn’t happen very often
anymore because I never exercise at 100%. I’m not a professional
athlete/superhuman. I’m a regular human who wants to live a good life.
Also, if you’re thinking, “what’s low intensity?” Get at least 30 minutes of exercise that makes you sweat a little. That’s the amount most experts agree on.

4. Consistently Improve Your Strength & Stamina
learned that it’s much more productive to exercise moderately and
increase your overall strength and stamina very slowly. Don’t get me
wrong: I’m not saying I just go for a 30-minute walk every day and call
My goal is still to become a little fitter every day. I
just look at those things over the span of a decade. Previously, I
wanted to become stronger or run farther in 6 weeks.
Get to know
your body. And up the intensity slowly every week. Keep in mind that
you’re exercising every day. You’ll still become stronger and fitter —
it will just take a little longer.
Understand that you’re doing the same thing tomorrow so don’t burn yourself out.

5. Eat Healthy
few months people get obsessed with old diets that resurrect. I don’t
care about ketogenic, bulletproof, cave man diets. It’s all BS. It’s
only about money and being right. I have no problem with that. I
understand it’s a business.
I grew up in Holland. The Dutch diet
is bread, cheese, milk, potatoes, sausage, and peanut butter (take that,
you diet gurus out there). And yet, we’re pretty healthy.
Just follow your common sense. Don’t eat a lot of saturated fats, sugar, and processed stuff. And don’t drink alcohol every day.
is fuel. And you only need X number of calories per day. X depends on
gender, age, and activity.
Know the difference between good and bad calories.
Don’t take in more calories than you burn.
That’s about it. No complex or weird diets needed.

6. Cheat Once A Week
So your goal is to exercise every day. But we all know that’s not going to happen.
This article is not called How To Exercise 365 Days A Year for a reason.
humans need to let loose every now and then. We’re not robots.
Sometimes we need to watch crap on Netflix all day. And we also need to
chug a jar of ice cream at times. Or eat two Big Macs in a row..
Why? Because it feels good. Just don’t make it a habit. Otherwise, you’re back to square one.
But keep the goal of exercising daily in your mind. Because if you plan to exercise 6 times a week, you probably go 5 times.
7. Track Your Progress
have a spreadsheet. And every Monday I update it with my previous
week’s exercise count. Last year I exercised 321 times. It was my main
focus for 2016.
You don’t have to do the same. Just find a way to
keep track of how well you’re doing. Getting a visual representation of
how much you’ve exercised is very motivating and keeps up the momentum.
I don’t take life that seriously. But I’m dead serious about my health.
If it’s your goal to exercise every day, you can do it. On average,
people exercise 3 days a week. That’s 156 days a year.
Even if you skip one day a week, you exercise 312 days a year: That’s double the average.
With this, I challenge you to join me in working out daily. It’s one of the best life improvement strategies you’ll ever find.

Now you just have to DO it.
