A saying we are fond of is:
“Start where you are with what you have!”
The point of course is to stop with the excuses and get to building strong habits. These days there are countless resources to help you get exercising. You don’t need much more to begin than the decision that you are sick and tired of being sick and tired.
Check out the video below. This is a client of ours who usually trains at our Ottawa personal training studio but is in lockdown presently. Here he simply uses a backpack full of books for weight.
You can see what we do is have him concentrate on the bottom half, harder portion of the lunge movement. This makes the exercise feel even heavier than the backpack alone will allow. There are workarounds for almost every restriction.
Bottom line…just get started and free yourself of the denial and the burden of empty excuses. You can do this.
Be well, be strong,
