Even if you workout for 2 hours a day, if you eat like crap, you’re going to gain weight.
Nutrition is more important than the workouts.
It’s been said your abs are created in the kitchen.. and it’s 100% correct.
With a unyielding schedule of running my businesses AND being a hands-on dad for my four children, I keep my exercise routine SIMPLE and EFFECTIVE.
I can’t spend 2 hours going through the gym routine (driving to gym, waiting for equipment, driving back home, etc.).
The workout had to give me the most “bang for the buck”.
It’s a circuit treadmill high-incline walking (4.2mph on 10% incline) combined with bodyweight strength training.
For example, I’ll walk for 2 minutes, then hop off the treadmill and do 8 pull-ups, 15 push-ups and 20 reps of a core exercise. Then, back on the treadmill and repeat for 8 cycles.
As you start getting older, it takes longer to recover. Just 20–25 minutes a day is all you need — and I’ve found this routine (walking and bodyweight training) puts little stress on my joints.
And a BIG plus — I do this from my bedroom, which also saves time (nice bonus!). And there’s no excuse to get it done. You can see my pull-ups in action below:
