When Is The Best Time To Train?

When is the best time to train?

Research indicates that your body has woken up and is primed around 3 hours and 11 hours after waking

Your joints need at least 3 hours to warm up and be primed – this decreases the possibility of injury.

How intensive is your workout? Will you need to consume a meal to have the required energy to complete the workout?

Some people will and some won’t.

The reality of most people’s situation dictates, that whenever they can is the best time.

The most critical priority is to do the workout, to do the training.

I don’t have to tell you how busy life is, how hectic you are. You already know this.

For many busy people working out at the end of the day is easily missed because of other priorities, whatever they may be.

For some people exercising first thing in the morning is the best option. Get up, go to training, get it out of the way. But this is not for all. Maybe you start too early. Maybe you have kids to care for. Or maybe there are other reasons why exercising in the morning is not conducive.

Maybe some days you can do longer workouts and other days shorter workouts. Whatever works. As I said above, doing the workout is the most critical priority.

Are you a night person or are you a day person? This might dictate which period of your day is better for you.

Whatever your decision, doing the workout is the priority. It may be shorter, or not at the gym, but it is better to have done a workout.

Walk For Your Health

Walking. Pretty simple we all do it, it’s easy to perform compared to other cardio exercises. You can do it anywhere and anytime. You don’t have to be taught how to do it, or how to make it easier or harder, a really simple exercise for weight loss.

Walking can reduce high cholesterol, body fat, the risk of cancer of the colon and the risk of non-insulin dependent diabetes. It helps control body weight, mental well-being, osteoarthritis, flexibility and co-ordination.

Walking for 2.5 hours a week—that’s just 21 minutes a day—can cut your risk of heart disease by 30%.

Even a quick one-minute jaunt pays off. A University of Utah study in 2014 found that for every minute of brisk walking that women did throughout the day, they lowered their risk of obesity by 5%.

Most success stories using walking, walk everyday for 45 minutes to 90 minutes, with the average around an hour. That’s 60 minutes per day, 7 days a week, 30 days per month. A simple training philosophy.


Alasdair Wilkins lost 100 pounds (45kg) in 1 year by just walking. Yes, you read right, just walking. The main points of his article https://www.vox.com/2015/7/7/8877041/losing-100-pounds  can be found below:

I just went to the gym, and I … walked. On a treadmill, uphill, at a brisk pace, for about an hour every day — and I do mean every day — from July to April.

I just ignored the (frequently contradictory) mountains of literature on the best way to lose weight and just focused on finding a way that worked for me.

The trick was finding a routine that I actually enjoyed doing and wanted to stick with.

I had given up hope of losing weight at all my only real goal was to start feeling a little better about myself.

I wasn’t putting pressure on myself to lose 100 pounds.

I sidestepped the biggest danger when it comes to weight loss: discouragement.

It definitely helped that I could do things like bring my tablet and watch Netflix in the gym


Wow. What a great example. I love success stories like that.

Go the gym every day, walk for an hour, uphill, at a brisk pace.

Is this what will work for you, maybe no, maybe yes. Only you will know. What should be highlighted is that he found something he enjoyed to do. Yes he may have been watching Netflix, but you have the ability to choose. So choose something you like, use distraction if you need (Netflix in the example), do it every day and do it for a considerable amount of time (60 minutes).

What Is A Complete Weight Loss Plan?

If you were to put together the perfect weight loss plan, what would it involve?

What parts would make up your plan?

Hmm?  Maybe something to do with diet, exercise and mindset. Sounds like a holistic approach, diet, exercise and mindset.

Diet:

What things would go into the perfect weight loss plan diet?

How about what foods or products to avoid? Things like processed foods, pre-packaged foods, that we all know are not good for to eat. And what about the foods we should be eating, the healthy stuff, the all natural whole foods that our grand-parents knew. The foods we can find at the local supermarket, like regular, affordable groceries. Sounds like a good idea. What about the amount of food we should eat, that would be great, so we aren’t starving ourselves and not overeating. May be even when to eat, so that meals are timed correctly and not to soon or too late. Meal plan? Yes, to put the whole diet together, in a format that can be followed, without excessive planning or thinking, all done for you so that you can save time and energy on more important things.

Exercise:

What would go into the exercise portion of the plan?

We all lead busy lives, making time to go the gym or get out and do cardio takes time, sometimes a lot of time. Short, do anywhere workouts, with no or few equipment requirements would be a great solution. Somewhere in the 15 minute duration. 15 minutes isn’t long. Just quarter of an hour and done. Especially for those busy days where nothing goes to plan and you still have everything to do. But still is open to do your normal gym workouts or cardio workouts too, when you have the time and your day is going to plan. Something that trains our entire body, and gets us breathing heavy for that added cardiac effect. Maybe even some extra abdominal exercises, because who doesn’t want that flat, washboard. Who doesn’t love a tight lean midsection?

Mindset:

What do you suggest for mindset?

We know that being focused on goals, and having a positive mindset is always where we want to be, but this is not always where we are mentally. We have over or under slept, we have to put up with negative people at work or in our general lives, we’re not happy with where we are physically, we not eating healthily, we feel run down and so on.

Proven scientific focus and control techniques that keep us mentally on track and keep us focused on our goals is what we need. Some tip, tricks, tools and even secrets that will break us from the depressive state around us and bring us to our natural state of focus and positivity. Because if we’re thinking different, we’re more likely to act differently and then take the actions we know we should.

How about hypnosis? Hypnosis? Yeah a hypnosis session that can be used to help change our thinking and mindset, so that we avoid the bad food and bad habits, and opt for better more nutritious foods and better habits like exercising often. Interesting idea, to bypass our often negative state, after a day around so much negativity. Be able to sit back for approximately 20 minutes and drain away the day’s stresses and feel refreshed for what comes next.

The Plan:

This plan we’ve just created, how long would it be for? Well a habit is starting to be formed with 21 consecutive days of deliberate practice. And starts to become automatic on an average of 66 days consecutive deliberate practice. What does this mean? Well, that a new habit, a new behaviour is going to take about a month to form. And then another month to start to become automatic. Realistically about 3 – 4 months to become the norm, with life’s distractions and interruptions.

4 months of plan? Sounds like a lot. Yes. What about a month long plan that can be repeated over and over again? Sounds a lot easier. Especially if the plan is formatted in an easy step by step, follow along system, that even a child could follow. Am I calling you a child? No, definitely not, but if it’s easy enough for a child to understand, then implementation will be easy and effortless. And we all have a million other things to worry about. So easy is great!
