We have put together 5 tips that will help you stay on track with your training & hopefully give you the motivation to continue your training during the lockdown.

 

1. MORNING ROUTINE.

 Having a morning routine sets you up for your day, & is vital no matter what your current working or living arrangements are. Set your alarm for the same time each day & stick to it. Make sure you are getting good quality sleep every night, optimally you want to sleep between 7 & 9 hours each day.

Once you are up, start your routine. Start off with a cold shower (The benefits of a cold shower are awesome), have a healthy breakfast (Point 4), get ready to work out! Finally, make sure you get 45-1 hour of active training in. Once you have completed your workout get ready for your day. Don’t let lockdown change your daily work routine.

2. STRUCTURE YOUR DAY.

Each morning marks the start of a new day. Writing down your daily tasks, challenges & goals is a great way to stay motivated & on-track. Whether it’s checking your emails, doing your daily workout, zoom meetings or a call to family & friends. Creating this list will provide our day with structure & you will be able to achieve a lot more in your day.

 

3. SETTING DAILY AND WEEKLY GOALS.

At the moment we do not know how long this global pandemic will last but we do know that we need to stay motivated. Setting realistic short & medium term goals is the perfect way to stay motivated & keep our daily tasks in check.

Your goals could be absolutely anything that you know is achievable with some hard work. As we are talking about staying fit & healthy, here are a few you could try out.

– Training 3-5 times a week

– If you have never run a 5km or 10km or even further try set one of these distance as a goal.

– Another goal could be training a different type of training, for example, yoga.

 

Whatever your goals are, having something to work towards will provide that sense of challenge & once your goal is accomplished you will have that feeling of achievement that we so crave. 

 

4. HEALTHY MEALS. 

One positive from being at home is that you are able to whip up some fresh, healthy meals whenever you’re ready. But before you get cooking you need to ensure your pantry & fridge are stocked up with healthy foods & try to reduce shopping for junk & unhealthy snacks. Snacks will only cause cravings, often resulting in snacking when you not even hungry.

Cooking healthy meals doesn’t need to take you hours. There are tons of healthy recipes you can find on the internet & if you can’t find any, we have plenty of healthy recipes you can try, go check out our social media pages for more.
