It’s important to listen to your body and know when to skip a workout. Here are some signs that it might be time to take a day off:
If you’re experiencing any of these signs, it’s best to skip your workout and listen to your body. Skipping a workout now will help you avoid getting injured or sick later on.
There are a few things you can do on your rest day to still stay active and improve your fitness. You could go for a walk, do some light stretching, or use a foam roller. You could also use your rest day to catch up on sleep, hydrate, or eat healthy foods.
Taking a rest day is not a sign of weakness. It’s a sign of wisdom and self-care. So next time you’re feeling like you should skip a workout, listen to your body and do what’s best for you.
When skipping a workout day you can consider the following too.
Remember, taking a rest day is not a bad thing. It’s actually an important part of a healthy training plan. So next time you’re feeling like you should skip a workout, listen to your body and do what’s best for you.
*WHAT IS THE 10 MINUTE RULE?
The next time you don’t want to have a workout… it’s raining outside, you really can’t be bothered, it’s been a long day at work, the kids are doing your head in and you’d rather have a glass of wine, then try the 10-minute rule.
Put your gym kit and trainers on (this is the hardest part, once you’ve done this then it’s plain sailing from here).
I can guarantee that 9 times out of 10 you’ll go for option 2 and carry on with your workout, wondering why you ever made such a fuss about not wanting to work out.
The 10-minute rule is simple but effective, give it a whirl the next time you are trying to avoid a workout!
