How to train through the holidays

Well, it’s that time of year again.

While it’s great to celebrate with family and friends, training time can get lost in all the hoopla.

Here’s a few ways to keep making progress:

Have a scheduled non-negotiable time to train.

Shop online to reduce time wasted in traffic.

Eat at home, it’s faster and healthier.

Don’t waste hours scrolling social media.

Cover your TV with a blanket and put a nice poinsettia on top of it. That way you won’t get sucked in.

Get enough sleep. You don’t have to party to 3 am.

Don’t let visitors be an excuse not to train.

Remember you can crush a solid workout in 30-45 minutes, you don’t need 2 hours to get it done.

Don’t skip your warmups, they only take a few minutes.

Beer is not a protein supplement.

Remember to stay focused when you train, no distractions, no pets, no kids.

Get in there and get it done.

If you want some good 30 minutes workouts, just let me know and I will send some out.

Until next time,

Coach D
