With resolution season starting on a weekend this year, the gym was pretty quiet this Jan 2 & 3. Who wants to get up early on a Saturday?
If you made it to Jan 4th congrats. Seeing how this is a leap year you still have 362 days and you’re going to need all the help you can to make it 2017.
It can go without saying, but if you can afford a trainer, get one. If you have a good one, congrats. There’s a great chance you’ll graduate to a new resolution next year. If you can’t afford a trainer, like most people, there’s still hope and it’s likely in your hand or your pocket right now. You know all about the apps that count calories if you already use them then you’re already on the road to get fit.
But do you know the apps that track your workout? They’ve been around awhile, but in the past they’ve been cumbersome and make you wonder if anyone is tech world even lifts. Apparently they do. Bodybuilding.com’s BodySpace app is a huge step forward. They have hundreds, if not thousands of routines for every goal. Why you would pick one that doesn’t make you look like comic book character as goal is beyond me, but all you need to do is create a profile, put in some simple goals and search. From there you just need to listen to what phone.
We created bodyspace profiles years ago, before the iphone was even a thing and back then we had to write down in a notebook our routine and then transfer them via a computer when we returned home. It was a pain and just not something we’d do with kids. Now, with the app you just add the weights and reps as you go. You’ll accumulate workouts and see how much progress you’ve made.
Karen and I are currently following Cory Gregory’s Get Swole Routine although we’re not following the exact schedule.
