That’s an admirable response Larue. The mind is so important whether you are active or resting. When I’m not mentally prepared to work out, I feel like I’m just lolligagging and going through the motions. If I wait for the right time of day when I’m more alert and maybe even meditate before the session I get so much more out of it and I seem to recover better. During the session I want to be using my brain as well. One way to do this is by combining muscle groups for compound movements whether you are doing cardio or resistance training. Anything that requires coordination or balance like intensely playing a musical instrument or a sport can make exercise more interesting and also more effective for the body as a whole. Whatever gets you moving from the inside out. This type of training makes us more functional for whatever we want to do in life.
