This January, instead of adding in complicated, lofty goals, or removing things you love, I encourage you to go back to the basics.
This January, my clients and I are going back to the basics. My clients will see the inclusion of squats, pushes, pulls, hinges and carries in their training. We will work in moderate rep ranges and do both interval and steady state cardio.
The goal this month is establishing and maintaining healthy habits. Getting the reps in. The result will be strength, increases in cardiovascular capacity, and health.
You likely know what to do to make positive changes for yourself. Instead of reading online what others are working on, think about what you can do better. Be active more days, start a lifting program, eat more protein or quit drinking sodas. Pick something simple and basic. You can do it.
