Everybody talks about starting up a workout and exercise program, but most beginners don’t even know where to start? If you absolutely have no clue the easiest thing to remember is that doing something is always better than doing nothing!
In all of my years of training people I have come to discover that many of them kickoff their exercise programs much in the same way. A lot of people that just start out end up taking a nice stroll around the block or at the local park. This is a great way to begin. However, the question of where to go next is always the following concern for many. For the sake of this article I’m not going to discuss the resistance training element, but the same questions arise there also. So if you decide to take a nice evening walk and can only make it halfway around the block today this can be your measuring stick.
In other words, today you made it half the distance so next week shoot for completing the whole distance. Eventually walking 2 or 3 times around the block might get a bit time consuming so the next step to progression is to ease into a light jog. You may not be able to complete the same distance that you walk when progressing into the run because you have intensified your work. Intensifying your workout is always the next step. If you are walking then jogging should be the next logical step. If you are jogging then running should be the next logical step. You understand where I am going.
The point is that you get yourself going doing something. The physical benefits of exercise all seed positive results from using your body. No matter your program always ask yourself how you can intensify it and move on from there.
