Going to the gym or working at home do you just do random moves or do you follow a plan of some kind? Is there a difference in terms of following a workout plan and not following one does it make a difference? Why do workout plans exist? Workout plans exist so that you don’t feel like a fish out of water in terms of how many reps each workout move is and what workout moves you should do. There is also pictures or videos usually with a workout plan so that it shows you the proper way to do certain moves. Those are the pros of following a workout plan. What about when you don’t follow a workout plan and just do random workout moves is that more about how fitness fits into your life. Does that mean you don’t follow a workout plan though? No that just means your workout plan is just going to be different from a normal workout plan that you would find online or through a trainer.
When you follow a workout plan you know exactly what moves you are supposed to do for exactly how many reps. There are usually pictures of how the moves are supposed to look or a video that is what you get when you follow a workout plan. It is much easier to follow a workout plan because you know what do versus trying to come up with your own moves which happens more so when you don’t follow a workout plan. When you don’t follow a workout plan you do a lot of standing around trying to figure out what your next move should be. Or you do a lot of the same moves over and over and how is that an interesting workout? It isn’t and that makes people’s workouts boring and not worth doing. However, if you do a lot of different things in your workout and you make it interesting like jump around or something you aren’t following a workout plan. That is what fitting fitness into your life is in a sense. Since your workout can change on a dime with the things you need to do in life.
The question is when you don’t follow a workout plan, what happens? Do you just stand there trying to figure out what to do, do you just skip out a workout plan each day and do that? Or do you just do what you feel in terms of stretching, and, weights or cardio? All of these questions are things that people do when they don’t follow a workout plan. Which is also why when people don’t follow a workout plan there workout looks choppy And messy which makes it a not put together workout.
Think about what happens when you do a workout that you aren’t familiar with. Do you look at it in written and picture form or do you just commit it to memory and try to do it that way. Or do you just do what you feel without looking at a workout plan? That means you aren’t following a workout plan and how does that make you feel? If you don’t plan your workout I mean. Do you feel as though, it is a good workout? When a workout is planned it feels seamless and it helps you stay on track. Since you can do a specific workout each day. Instead of just putting things together.
If you randomly decide to do a workout you don’t plan it. When you don’t plan it, you just put, moves together with enough reps so that they don’t look like they don’t belong together. Following a workout plan is easier than doing random workout moves because it is easier to do a routine which is a workout plan you follow to the letter instead of not doing things at all. That is why following a workout routine is amazing because you really don’t have to think of what you do. Which is easier for you to follow, then for you to do something new and off the cuff. That is fitting fitness into your life a little bit, isn’t it? When you fit fitness into your life you are pretty much doing an unplanned workout.
When we fit fitness into our lives we don’t plan our workouts or at least not all the way through at least. This is because we aren’t thinking we are working out when we fit it into our lives. That is called the unfollowed workout because all your movements aren’t planned. You are just going through your life sometimes those are the best workouts though. Planning sometimes isn’t fun don’t you want to have a fun workout to try and do that. You can also do things around your house and be involved in fitness without even really feeling it. When you do an unplanned workout you aren’t following anything you are just going through your life and moving. That makes it seem like you aren’t working out. So if you want to feel, like you are working out plan your workout if you just need to get things done in a day and don’t have time for something planned just keep going.
When you follow a workout plan you know exactly what you are doing. It also feels like a real workout. If you don’t know a workout plan but you are still moving and lifting things throughout the day, or you just do a workout you think up yourself instead of something that’s laid out you feel like you are getting something good accomplished when you follow a workout plan because you can sometimes mark things off if you have a calendar labeled with your workouts when you are finished. If you don’t though you can’t do that and how does that make you feel? Does it make you feel unaccomplished and that your workout wasn’t enough? Think about your goals and how you can fit a workout into your life around everything else that you are doing. You are following a workout plan and you are not at the same time but getting the results you want just the same.
Workout plans are meant to give you structure in terms of doing your workout. They are meant to give you a light at the end of the tunnel in a sense, you are getting more of a workout when you follow a plan than when you don’t. Which is why it is better to follow a workout plan then it is to not. However, you can do both when it comes to the fit flex life. You can make what you do in your daily life part of your workout plan if you want. That is how I usually do it and it works when fitting fitness into your life even if it’s not what someone else would consider a workout then it is too not. You feel off and out of sorts when you don’t follow a workout plan don’t you? I do that is why even if something comes up I try to put into my workout for the day or plan another one. It makes it much easier.
When a person is involved in fitness they plan their workouts but why do they do that? They do this so they aren’t doing the same thing over and over again each day that they workout. If you plan your workouts and switch them up rather then doing them off the cuff, you are targeting different muscles and body parts rather than the same ones all the time. That is why when you are involved in fitness following a workout plan is best. So even when you fit fitness into your life you can still follow a workout plan just write your workout plan down and tweak it when it changes. That is how you can follow a workout plan, but when you are fitting fitness into your life and not following a plan you are all over the place that is the difference. It makes a person feel disheveled, which is why we plan our workouts even if we don’t write them down we think of them enough that they are committed to memory versus not planning them at all.
If you don’t plan your workouts you feel unproductive in it. Standing around trying to come up with things to do instead of doing the same things. Even if you don’t write something out think about it and commit to it to memory so you do the workout you want. If you don’t do that you won’t get the results you want and get mad at yourself so you won’t get the workout you are looking to do. So think of the workout you want to do and you will do much better then if you just try to do things without thinking of them first. That is how not following a workout might not give you the results you want but you will still get something out of it. Not what you fully want but its still something so don’t beat yourself up.
When you follow a workout plan you usually have one focus in terms of what you want to work on. When you don’t you are trying to focus on everything. These two things do work in terms of workouts you just have to keep moving and believe it will work and it will. That is the point of the fit flex life. Remember that.
