Set up that home gym already

Share This Post

I have mentioned this one before because I think it is that important.

You are not alone if you don’t know how to do an at home regular strength training routine. It all starts with a home gym set up and it doesn’t have to be elaborate. Check out the video below.

Did you know that you will lose somewhere between 2-5kg in muscle mass per decade, if you don’t do regular challenging and progressive overload strength training? Doesn’t sound like a huge problem to worry about immediately but if you are my age or more, you will start to notice how time goes by quicker than it used to and a decade of time isn’t really that long anymore.

When you couple that with the understanding that a loss of muscle mass usually equals not so cool things like ‘ageing’ badly, increased body fat (because you lose metabolic rate), less ability to do useful stuff, higher incidence of depression and yes more pain, then the motivation to learn it increases somewhat.

Also not that we are massively in to the superficial side, but let’s face it, a toned body, which is another happy side effect of regular strength training, does usually look quite good too! So learning how to do a strength training routine and of course actually doing it, is absolutely VITAL to giving yourself the best chance at a much better second innings of life.

Use it or lose it…..

Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
