You need to stress your body in different ways. If you’re doing just one type of exercise, your body will become dysfunctional.
One indication of whether you are working out really, really hard is your ability to chat. The moment you can’t chat, you know you’re working really hard to your maximum.
The minimum effective dose (in a workout) is the very smallest thing that you can do that has a positive impact.
Walking cannot be underestimated in terms of its ability to provide you with a good baseline of fitness. Ten minutes of walking have the effect of increasing your mood and energy levels for up to three hours afterward.
Men who get six hours or less of sleep consistently each night have the testosterone levels of a man 10 years their senior. That’s how much sleep can affect your energy and your virility.
Do a blend of low-, medium- and high-intensity exercises.
Do a mobility assessment if you’ve got an arthritic knee.
Do cross-training exercises.
Look at all the different aspects of fitness as you think about your fitness regime.
“Forget about what you used to do. The thing with coming back to fitness when you’re regaining it, having lost it, is ego can really get in the way… and it stops them from A, being enthusiastic and passionate about the exercise, and B, from persevering.”
“Recovery is as important as training… Think about what you are doing to recover as well as what you are doing to train your mind and body.”
