Every day; typically 30 minutes of cardio (run, or row and cycle), with a component workout depending on the day of the week. There’s lots of workout regimes available online, designed by people who (likely) know what they’re doing. Just first decide if your end goal is fat loss or muscle gain, and from there you’ll find people online sharing your goals and their advice.
Fridays and Mondays are rest my rest days; that’s when I’ve found my gym is busiest. Branded gyms typically have free classes too, which I’ll attend occasionally. At the weekends I’ll do a 35 mile cycle ride with friends, occasionally 50 miles, through the countryside or along the coast. This year I did the Coast-2-Coast/Sea-2-Sea alone, which was 120 mile over two days, as I was bored and it’s on my doorstep.
If I could give three tips:
- General fitness is 80% diet; I’m on the keto diet, but any diet should force you to look into your food’s raw ingredients and nutrition, and have you understand “what’s good for you.”
- Pick a gym which is within 15 minutes walk of your home, and 2nd best, 15 minutes from work. Convenience is king; you want it easily accessible, and it’ll integrate easy into your daily routine.
- Get a bicycle, it does yourself and the planet a favour. Open up Google Maps, and apply the “cycle routes” layer; go see something you’ve never seen before: monuments, museums, beaches, woodlands, lakes, art galleries, zoos, public parks, churches, quaysides etc.
