Burnt out on your New Years resolution already? Here's how to get over that!

If you have just started a new program or training routine you NEED to add active recovery and rest days to avoid burn out by the end of March if not earlier. If you're already burnt out, it's ok you can still add them in now to reap the rewards.

The high of starting a new regime, especially if you see results fairly early on is addictive and pushes us to want to go harder and train everyday. However if you sacrifice too much early on in the piece and don't blend training and diet in to your life you will struggle to continue this tempo and stop yourself from getting the change you desperately desire.

When a new client joins me, they will often as how many sessions a week I recommend and I always recommend 1-2 sessions per week.

I think if they're asking me these questions they are seeking guidance as they most likely don't know where to start or their limits.

To me starting with the low hanging fruit, 1-2 session per week, allows you to easily add this time into your life, provides lots of time for recovery, alleviates some of the pressure we put on ourselves to train 5-6 times per week (which is unsustainable for most people) and allows us to feel accomplished when we reach those goals. After a few weeks/months of routine if you find you can add more to your schedule then you can always add more.

If you have been training 5-6 times per week, are always sore and are thinking maybe you'll just skip this whole week (which we know snowballs in to many) then try reducing your frequency to maybe 2-3 times per week and just see if that makes a difference for you.
