Hi, I'm Jen D'Amore for About.com and this video is all about 10 rules for regular exercise using Paige Waehner's tips from About.com's Exercise site.Give yourself time: they say the best exercise is the kind you'll do, and you may not find that activity right away, so give yourself time to experiment with different activities to figure out what you like and will look forward to doing. Also, give your body time to strengthen and build endurance, your workout quality will increase over time.
Plan Ahead: schedule your workouts and have everything ready ahead of time to avoid disrupting your schedule. Prep or pack your clothes, shoes, mp3 player and water bottle so you don't waste valuable workout time trying find each item. Pack a snack or meal replacement shake so that a growling stomach doesn't veer you away from the gym.Fully commit to your workouts: schedule your workouts and don't allow yourself to negotiate out of them. Give yourself a reward for keeping to your schedule, like a massage, or some time in the steam room or hot tub.
Exercise in the morning:it's easiest to stick to an exercise schedule when it's the first thing you do when you wake up. Besides getting it out of the way for the day, it boosts your metabolism and gives you more energy for the day. It may also be easier to get to sleep, than if you work out in the evening, closer to bed time.Think before you skip: if you have the urge to to skip a workout, question yourself on how you'll really feel, if skipping will help or hurt your goals, and why you're really avoiding exercise. Identify the reason, then you can find a way to address the barrier.
Recognize your excuses: there is a difference between a reason and an excuse. Be honest, are you really too tired? If you're just mentally tired, or bored, you'll find your energy pick up during your workout. Do you really not have time? or can you find a way to squeeze in a few 10 minute workouts throughout the day?Listen to your body: be aware of how your body responds to your workouts. Is it giving you energy? Are you experiencing any pain or discomfort? Is it helping or adding to your stress level? Make adjustments to make sure your body is benefiting from your healthy action.
Find balance in your workouts: rather than always doing either cardio or strength training, create a workout plan that includes a balance of cardio, strength training, and stretching. And vary the intensity of your workouts, doing intervals, and cross-training, so you're not always doing the same movement.Embrace variety: changing your workout every few weeks will work more of your muscles and keep you from plateauing, so you'll continue to see the results of your hard work.
Allow for failure: If you've slipped out of your schedule, or lost your momentum, forgive yourself and move on by getting back into your good habits. Rather than considering those imperfect periods a time of failure, consider it a time you allowed your body to rest. But if it becomes a pattern, figure out what's causing it and address it to regain control of your routine.
