To those of you who hate to exercise, let’s talk.
Do you feel pain or discomfort when you exercise? There are a percentage of folk’s who cannot tolerate a few minutes, let alone an hour of exercise because of the bodily discomfort. Perhaps as you read this you are thinking, “Who doesn’t feel pain or discomfort when they exercise?”
Actually I love the feeling I get when I am lifting weights or doing resistance exercise. I also love to dance (aerobically) with loud music. I cannot stand running or even walking on a treadmill, but love to run if I have to get somewhere quickly. It is all a matter of taste.
What the “exercise hater” needs to do is to think of what kind of movement she likes. For example, do you enjoy working in your garden, cleaning your house, taking walks through the park? Look into who you are and what truly floats your boat!
Then simply add a few things to your “movement” such as squats while gardening and lunges during your walk. You can do push-ups against the bathroom counter before you brush your teeth and crunches on the floor when you catch your favorite program. You can do triceps dips off of the park bench. For demonstration you may tune into my YouTube workouts http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_nY10yaHeo and go ahead and clean your floors! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUHYCz58vCw and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YxpmqveC6s
Don’t think of your exercise program as an hour a day, instead, think of doing five minute increments whenever you do something that requires you to move!
