We've all had those moments, we know that we should move and do something with our bodies to de-stress and feel good, especially after a long day at work; but the overwhelming desire to do nothing is easy to fall victim to. Missing a day due to our mindset can turn to two, then before we know it we are months away from our last bit of exercise.
Today this can all change for you! Let's set up a NO COMPROMISE policy when it comes to movement, it is what I set in my mind when I started training seriously at the beginning of last year. Sure I was running and exercising before to lose weight, but January 2014 was when I decided to step it up a gear and make a commitment to move with purpose in some way every day of the year. It doesn't have to be crazy, just purposeful.
The trick for me was forming a positive relationship with movement at first; trust me the last thing that you'll want to do if you have had months away from purposeful movement is to smash your body to pieces. We want to start off with a few minutes building to something bigger and better each day. This is the reason I post a workout Wednesday video on my social media each week and why so many people have told me that they are trying them out, they are short, sweet and you can do them literally anywhere!
With that said, Friday is my day to share with you a completely free mobility and heart raising drill that you can try out over the weekend. The idea is that you can take that forward into each day of the week to get you to be more active. Honestly if you can't find at least 5 minutes to flex muscles and strut your stuff then you shouldn't be complaining about feeling rubbish. If you feel like I have challenged you then you should, you are capable of amazing things and by not moving with purpose you are not fulfilling your potential!
Here's this weeks drill video below, have a great active weekend and remember to Stay Strong and Keep Moving!
