How to Enjoy a Workout

Happy hump day!

These days I’ve been having fun while working out.

I’ve also been getting a little creative in the process.

The best way to have fun while working out is to set challenges for yourself.

With a challenge like a handstand, you’re thinking less about how hard it is, and more on how much closer you are to achieving your goal of owning a new trick.

And who doesn’t want a picture of themselves doing a one-handed handstand on a rooftop while the sun is setting?

Here are some challenges I strive for:

  • Lifting more weight
  • Doing more pull-ups
  • Increasing my mile time
  • Jumping higher
  • Tricks on tricks, everything from wild partner workouts to crazy flips (I like browsing through the #IGFIT hashtag on Instagram to catch some inspiring moves)

If you’re looking for something totally new, check out fitness trends, like the facial aerobics. Apparently this is an actual thing.

You guys know what challenge I’m working on, but here’s an update with some backbends thrown in the mix.

And remember everyone has to start from the beginning and perfect is overrated. 🙂

How do you find the fun in your workouts?

    Hoops on hoops, great blog, What is this ‘wild couple’ work out you speak of? But the way, all your videos are looped on that last one.

    For me, whenever I complete a long run goal, that feeling of accomplishment just can’t be beat! It’s about getting to the finish though…and it can be tough at times just to get out the door :/

    BTW, love the new blog 🙂

      Ah! agora sim!!!As interpretações "corretas" serão a dos PTralhas… os semi-analfabetos, os vagabundos profissionais que detestam estudar…… correto agora seriam as interpretações do "adevogado" fracassado lewandowhisky ou do vagabundo que por falta de conhecimento e estudo foi reprovado em dois concursos para juiz de primeira instância…… seria isso o correto???Voces estão dando muita asa a cobra, prendam logo essa PTralhada toda atrás das grades.Se fosse com vocês seria PAREDÃO e bala na nuca!

      (1:36 PM): I don't quite understand your point. The moment the commentators pointed out that there was an error in the post, I acknowledged it and corrected the post. What else do you expect me to do? As for anonymous comments, as long as they are civil and make a point I have no issue but if these anonymous chaps (not you!) think they can take the moral high road under the veil of anonymity they are highly mistaken.Prashant

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog
    that’s equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you have
    hit the nail on the head. The issue is something not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I found this in my hunt for something concerning this.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew
    of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some
    time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything.

    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to
    your new updates.
