Breaking Up Your Workouts

We get it, the world is busy and life takes time. For some people, carving out an hour and half block to time to train just isn't realistic. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t train an hour and a half a day. For some reason, the concept of chunked workouts just isn't as popular as it probably should be. What do we mean by that? Well, you don’t have to be in gym clothes to workout. Going for a walk can be cardio, cranking out some push-ups in the morning can be strength training, and stretching before bed can be your mobility training. The more we find ways to make training a part of our lifestyle and not just something that happens in our life, the more likely we are to find ways to make it consistent. And remember, consistency is more important and valuable in the long-run than intensity. Say you can’t go for that mid-day walk, or stretch at night? If you did your push-ups in the morning you at least did something. And when it comes to fitness and health, something is a heck of a lot better than nothing. So, next time you think about your training and how you are going to fit it into your schedule, be creative. Find ways to workout without working out. Find ways to make training a part of your life instead of a singular event.

As always, whether you're working out in one long chunk or spread out your training throughout the day, consuming a sufficient amount of protein is vital for making progress and creating long-term success. Check out Upper Echelon Nutrition Whey Protein Isolate for your protein supplementation needs.
