I remember when I was first starting to get back in to my fitness routine after lockdown. For some reason, it was SO HARD for me to get going.
I had so many false starts. But then I realized… I needed to start SLOWER, and start with the easiest possible thing. Sometimes we make getting started SO COMPLICATED that we make it even harder on ourselves.
I made it easier for myself by doing a few things before each workout.
- Plan – write down the session before getting to the gym
- Reduce the weight – take a step back from the weights I was previously lifting and try something a little lighter.
- Allow time to rest – I slowly built up my training frequency as the weeks went by.
What worked for me was doing these 3 actions before every session, until it became a habit and I actually started to look forward to it! If I can do it, you absolutely can.
