So we’re facing another 6 weeks indoors, with no access to the gym or the equipment we are spoilt with every day. It would be pretty easy to just say ‘well that’s that then’, give up and immediately turn your back on training.
And that’s fine, online training and training from home isn’t for everyone! But don’t be surprised or shocked when you start going backwards!
Unlike your brain, your body doesn’t know there’s a lockdown. It doesn’t care. It needs taking care of for your physical and mental wellbeing, and if you apply enough effort and discipline you may actually make progress towards your fitness goals in the meantime!
If you need to, think of your body as a pet! It doesn’t know what’s going on, it’s still desperate to go out for a walk and when it doesn’t it’s going to act up! If you don’t look after your body it can lead to a number of factors that will negatively effect you, leading to that depressed state everyone was trying to avoid during the first lockdown!
Progress has always been a combination of commitment, consistency and effort. THIS HAS NOT CHANGED! If anything it has become even MORE important!
