Exercising even when you don't think you have the time do so

There are going to be times when even the most dedicated amongst us will find their day to be just too hectic to get a workout in. Or at least, it’s going to feel that way. Sure, I know I talk about (and actively do) 10 minute, or 15 minute workouts to get the job done - but still, there's going to be times when you feel that things are just too hectic to fit a workout in. (Note: I’m excluding professional sportspeople or others who do physical activity as part of their daily jobs – such as laborers, dock loaders etc. This is meant for the rest of us that don’t necessarily do hard physical labor as part of the “job”)

For instance, today's been a particularly busy day for me thus far, and it's just about lunchtime now. Had a business meeting early in the morning, then got home on time to head out to get some paperwork done for the wife. Then emails etc, and before I know it, it's time for lunch. Oh, and in the middle of all that I've been juggling some important phone calls as well - so, hardly sounds like the perfect day to get a great workout in.

But, as it turned out, I did get a great workout in - and so can you - if you do the right thing. 

I did two short routines today - 12 minute routines each, and feel great. Simple exercises, and the workouts in themselves were simple too - so simple that I didn't even need any time to think about how I'd approach the workout. Just start, bang out the reps, pant, sweat, rest a second or two, and then go again. And you'd be amazed as to how heavily a 10-12 minute workout can make you work.

Two key factors here: - a) my routines were SIMPLE - so you jump straight into them as you have some time to spare and b) they didn't take more than 12 minutes approximately (each routine) - this is key, as you get your workout done - and then jump right back to your other commitments. And whats more, you'll feel much, much better for having got a short workout in, and you'll likely be far more productive as well.

The only downside of this is that you'll be working up a sweat twice, so you may need to take a second shower during the day. Small price to pay for a good workout, me thinks!

Ok, back to the "grind" now - more later!

Best regards,
