The body is fantastically adaptable.
But once we adapt to something, we go into auto-pilot. Always keep it fresh – even if you go on holiday and come back to your regular workout, you’ll still feel differently. Tweaking your usual routine will give you a fresh flow of blood, and a new sense of achievement.
Start by finding your happy place with the 90/10 rule.
You want to be challenging yourself to an extent, but still be able to perform 90% of what your goal is. The best fitness regime is the one that you like doing, so make that commitment to it, just like you would schedule in an important business meeting or doctor’s appointment. It’s all about you.
Even if you’re struggling – in whatever it may be – just keep moving.
Find a way to keep taking the steps, and find your own balance of stability, resistance, and control. Every little bit counts. Let’s go!
