Workout Suggestions for the time strapped Dad.
I was wondering if anyone faces this challenge or something similiar. I drive about 750 miles a week for work and have 2 beautiful kiddies under 3 at home so going to a gym is out of the question. I have no choice but to workout b/c if I don't I get moody and stressed out. I injured my back and thanks to a little dose of PTSD from my deployments overseas, if I sit still too long or become too inactive my fibromyalgia flares up. With this in mind I had to adjust my workout routine to maximize what little time I do have. Since I do not have the ability to go to the gym or have a consistent, solid workout at home I have decided on training throughout the day. I shoot for a certain number of reps per day and will try my best to knock sets out every 45 minutes to an hour. I use the weekends as for my rest and I am about add sprints to my Sundays. I focus solely on body weights but will occasionally add a few weights here and there to change things up.
Typical workout on an average day
Push-ups Variation - 150-175 per day
Squats - 125-150 per day
Dips - 50-75 per day
Sit-ups - 125-200 per day
Stairs (5 flights) 3-4x per day
Pull-ups 50-75 per day
Heavy Bag (twice per week)
Does anyone else have little to mo time to workout and also any suggestions on what I could add to break up the monotony? I love my workouts and they keep me energized throughout the day but I am always looking for things to add. Thanks for any suggestions.
Today is a new day. You will get out of it just what you put into it. If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. And supposing you have tried and failed again and again, you may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call 'Failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down.
