Automated Newsletter from Troy Anderson of Bluecollarathlete.com

From Troy Anderson and Anderson Training Systems/Bluecollarathlete.com:

"Andy

Are you read to be shocked?
Research shows that healthy fit people exercise 5 hours per week.

This shocks the heck out of most people when they come in and sit down with me for a consult.

They are expecting to come in and dabble around for 1 or 2 sessions per week and
then I drop that on them like a ton of bricks.

So if you were shocked let me help you put it in a little perspective.

5 hours of the total 168 hour per week.

Minus 45 hrs of work and hopefully 56 hrs for sleep, this leaves you with 67 hrs available to use.



5 hrs only represents 7.5% of those available 67hrs.



Seems a lot more manageable now right?



Yeah I know you are busy, but everyone is really busy, but...



I bet if you look really close at your life right now, you can probably find those 5 hrs without expending too much effort.

And really what's more important to you?

A healthy mind and body.

45hours at work??? Must be a government statistic.

Great article Andy. Amazing how we make excuses to not workout for 7.5% of our free time.

Hey Darryl...as you probably know...it's just his general way of looking at how we can still manage to budget our "very little" time to our our busy lives to get an average of 3-4 workouts a week. It's so true aint it?
