I don’t know about you, but my December is STACKED.
I have so much to do it’s not even funny.
For example: I’m revamping my website (yeah, I actually have one of those – LOL) so it’s actually a resource for you.
I’m editing new videos that I’ve made for you.
And working on new programming designed to get you faster results in less time.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
AND – I (we) have this whole “Holiday” thing going on.
(For example, yesterday was my daughter’s 2nd birthday – so we had her party and I took the day off. GREAT time, but not necessarily conducive to productivity.)
So, I’ve had to modify my workouts.
There’s just too much going on and too many end-of-the-year deadlines to maintain my preferred training schedule.
Unfortunately, I’ve decided not to take an “off-season” this time of year because I have a mid—February deadline I have to meet.
What kind of modifications have I made?
I’ve started using “PFT” workouts.
Yesterday I wrote about “MED” workouts – “Minimum Effective Dose” workouts.
Well “PFT” workouts are similar, but the opposite.
I seek to do as much high quality work in a pre-set time frame.
I call these “Pinched For Time” workouts – hence the “PFT.”
Right now I’m using a 15 minute timeframe for my workouts.
I use a 5 minute warm-up, train for 15 minutes, and that’s it.
Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha… What’s that?
I make sure that the last thing I do during my training session “balances out” what I did during the main part of my 15 minutes.
How do I set them up?
I’ll discuss that more tomorrow.
In the meantime, if you’re feeling pinched for time and you don’t want to try to figure out how to design your own workouts, go here.
PS – The cool thing about my “PFT” workouts is that even though they’re demanding, they’re short enough to GIVE me energy, instead of robbing me of energy. (Cause let’s face it, even 30 minutes can be too much sometimes.)
So even though I’ve been up since 5 or so, I can train, eat dinner, put the kids to bed, and instead of falling asleep with my son around 730/8pm or so, I can actually go back to work and be productive or spend time with my wife.
If you need extra energy, use these workouts.
