Training, exercising, working out, getting your swole on, whatever the heck you want to call it, it’s important for health and longevity. One of the most common questions I get asked is, “Ben, how many times each week should I be exercising?”
There’s not a one size fits all answer to this question but I will give you THE best solution in this article. Before we get to that let’s talk about what is more important, movement!
SITTING IS THE NEW SMOKING
If you train your ass off 60 minutes each day, but are sitting on your ass desk-bound inside a cubicle prison for the remainder of the day, I have some shocking news for you; you are not much better off than the entire sedentary population. Yes, you read that correctly. This is why I want you to shift your focus away from asking how many times per week should you exercise, to how often you should be moving throughout the day.
I challenge you to implement more ways to move throughout the day. Movement matters, in fact, I wrote an entire chapter on it in my upcoming book ‘The Perfect Health Booklet; Simple Steps Proven to Transform Your Health.
Here are ways for you to move more:
- Park farther than you need to and walk to your destination.
- Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
- Go for a morning walk and get sunlight in your eyes (major health key!)
- Take your dog for more walks.
- Just keep moving.
Now, when we are talking about physical training, there’s an important component we need to pay attention to for optimal fat loss and overall health. After intense exercise it’s important to RECOVER. When you are working out, you are breaking down your muscle fibers in a safe and productive way. When you recover with quality sleep, proper nutrition and the right supplements; you allow your body to repair itself and grow STRONGER. If you aren’t prioritizing these recovery tips you will never reach your fat loss and fitness goals. This is exactly why I send people home from my gym if I see them overtraining and under recovering. Recovery is crucial to you getting the results that you so badly desire.
Sleep, nutrition, the right supplements, all of this MATTERS! If you would like to learn more about movement and recovery, book a free health coaching session today: http://bit.ly/2sFlkka
