Multitasking Your Workout

126872410_fcd124e85dThese days, it seems like we just don’t have time for doing one thing at a time. We have made multitasking such a part of our lives that we derive a sense of accomplishment whenever we knock out multiple birds with the proverbial one stone! It’s understandable, after all, we live in a fast-paced world that is much less forgiving than that of our parents or grandparents.

While there is no doubt in my mind that focusing on one task at a time will make you more productive, sometimes we just have to multitask to get the job done. (If you want to learn more about focusing on one task at a time, Zen Habits has got it!) So in what way can you get the job done?


Exercising At Home

Until the recent financial crisis, it seems like this was almost a lost art. But now that we’re all committed to being more responsible with our finances, it’s no wonder why more people are working out at home. I can’t stress to you enough how awesome bodyweight circuits are. I mean, come on, if Craig Ballantyne can do bodyweight circuits in his hotel room, I think we can manage in our apartment/house!!

So why not exercise in front of the TV during your favorite show! You’ve got TiVo, you know how to use it, so record 24 and you can be a bad-ass right alongside Jack Bauer!! The key here is to minimize the downtime between circuits, effectively keeping your heart rate up and working! This will get you in great, lean shape (provided you’ve got that sound diet we’re always talking about).
