A leader in the fitness industry for fifteen years and a researcher for nearly 20, Mike T Nelson believes that "anyone can get stronger, leaner and more energized while improving the health of their joints!"
Early on in his research, Mike realized that the more a person sticks to the basics but focuses on 6 key foundational tactics, the faster and easier RESULTS become.
Mike Nelson is the creator of the Fast Exercise Plan for busy people, which stems from his fifteen years of expertise in the fitness industry.
Back that up with his BA in Natural Science, his Masters in Mechanical Engineering (Biomechanics), and his PhD (completion in 2011).
Feeling the crunch when it comes to finding personal time?
Scenario: Really want to get in shape, but work all day? Can't find the time to exercise, and don't know the best exercises for beginners?
Finding time to exercise is certainly a challenge.
Even the most motivated suffer setbacks during busy seasons or when a new project is on the horizon.
The key to fitting fitness into a busy day is to recognize that finding time isn't the issue--it's making time.
Enjoy the benefits of a regular exercise program in as little as three hours per week.
The following routine shows you how:
Monday: Half-hour of jogging, biking (on hills) or other intense aerobic exercise
Tuesday: Half-hour of strength training (squats, sit-ups and push-ups for beginners; weight training with machines or dumbbells for the more experienced)
Wednesday: Rest day
Thursday: Repeat Monday
Friday: Repeat Tuesday
Saturday: One hour of exercise--any type of exercise. Go rollerblading with a friend, take the family to the hills for a hike or swim laps at the pool.
Sunday: Rest day
Make workouts more time-efficient by exercising harder. For example, walk two miles in a half-hour, or run four miles in a half-hour.
Spend an hour in step aerobics class, or spend 20 minutes rowing at the highest resistance level on the rowing machine. When performing strength-training exercises, use a challenging resistance and move quickly through exercises to get an aerobic benefit.
Exercise must become a part of life--a habit as regular as brushing your teeth.
Also try these other ideas from http://MikeTNelson.com:
*Make a log during the week, and identify the time slots where exercise can fit in. Maybe get up a half-hour earlier on the weekdays, or just skip an hour of television time or go to bed later.
*Make exercise convenient. Find a place to work out that's close to home or office, or create the space, work out at home.
*Develop relationships with supportive people. Join an exercise class or go to the gym with friends. Find yourself wanting to skip a class, friends are great accountability partners
*Exercise at the right time. "The right time is when you're most likely to do it. If you know your day often ends late or meetings come up suddenly, it's best to schedule your workout for first thing in the morning when nothing can interfere. If you're a night owl, fit your workout in before dinner. If you can only manage a 10-minute walk on your lunch hour--do it. Some exercise is better than none." says Mike T Nelson.
