This week’s Friday Fitness Tip is “Don’t Take Off Too Many Days In Between Workouts.” It wasn’t until we started our fitness journey that we realized how true this actually is. No matter how dedicated you are to fitness, it happens… you forego a workout day. Then another. You’re on a roll, so why not add one more skipped day. One more day won’t do anything, right?
There are a TON of reasons you skip. Maybe you’re tired, you’re sick, or maybe it’s just too damn cold outside! We all do it, but it is important to not let too many days go by in between workouts. Here are some reasons why:
- You are breaking your routine, which can make it hard to start up again.
- It takes time to get into shape, but not much time to fall out of shape. Without even realizing it, we lose muscle mass and gain body fat.
- Your mental health can suffer. This is huge for us. We realize on the days we skip our workout, we are grumpy, unmotivated, and tired.
