I’ve consistently exercised the past few years.
I prefer to run, but because the streets of Bangkok are so congested, I'd be asking for injury.
"Eyes on the road buddy!"
The gyms here are also far and in-between so I decided to make the best of my situation by working out in my room.
Overall I live an active lifestyle.
I average about 10,000 steps a day and try to take periodic breaks away from my computer to stretch.
My point is that I don’t think fitness should be reserved to a 20/30 min portion of my day.
People in "blue zones", a.k.a the areas in the world where people live the longest, don’t go to the gym. They incorporate activity throughout the day like gardening or walking.
And that’s my goal. I’m not trying to get 6-pack abs, or be a certain weight, or bulk up like Schwarzenegger.
I just want to live as long (and healthy) as possible, 100+ years. A boy can dream, right?
Now with that said, I'm hunched over my computer much of the day so to compensate I do reserve 20/30 min of my day for a more intense workout.
My two primary exercise goals are to get my heart rate up and break a sweat, my secondary goals are to have fun and work out for at least 20 minutes.
*I might do 2-3 rotations of something like this:
