This is by no means a new concept but I think it’s worth a reminder.
I’m sure you’ve heard the 8,000-10,000 steps figure which, although slightly arbitrary can be a useful starting point. Most of you will have a health app on your phones tracking your daily activity, I like to use this as a tool with my clients (especially if they don’t know that they have the app). Some simple ways to increase your NEAT(Non-Exercise, Activity, Thermogenesis), schedule in movement breaks throughout the day, go for a walk in your lunch break, walk or cycle to work, or get off the train/bus early and walk part way to work. Go for hikes at the weekend, enjoy being outside in nature with family and friends.
Low level, general movement will aid recovery by moving blood around the body, flushing out toxins from training and life, it can also help to reduce stress.
You will feel fresher in the gym, you will be more energised and alert throughout the day among many other benefits.
Whatever your reason for training, daily movement will help. #3aces #3acesid #trainsmartlivebetter
