Hate Running & Jumping?
I ran a poll on my Instagram last week asking how many of you didn't mind running or jumping.
Here are the results:
👉 82% hated jumping
👉 80% hated running
👉 91% said burpess can f*ck right off (not your exact words but I paraphrase...)
(My followers may not be a representative sample of the UK population, but it's still indicative)
Someone said to me recently "I so wanted to be into yoga or running but I have to accept that it's not me" (hi Kerry!)
If the thought of running, jumping or yoga is stopping you from doing anything, know that firstly, you are not alone. Secondly, you don't NEED to do them.
NHS guidelines recommend all adults (irrespective of age & fitness) should be aiming to do:
👉 150 minutes of moderate intensity activity
👉 75 minutes of intensive activity
Per week. That equates to:
👉 21 mins per day (moderate)
👉 11 mins per day (intensive)
In addition, we're also recommended to do strengthening activities that work all the major muscle groups, at least twice a week.
You can achieve both these recommendations without the need to run or jump.
And while exercise classes are great, they can also be a bit daunting if you're a beginner or returning after a break.
Break it up throughout your day. Start small and you may find that once you start the balls rolling, the momentum keeps you going.
Soon you may find those classes more achievable and even, dare I say it, enjoyable!
