Was your workout good enough?


Im not drenched in sweat – so my work out wasn’t good enough…

Just because you arent drenched in sweat, doesn’t mean your workout wasn’t ‘good enough’.

This is such a misconception…

When I was at varsity I was totally guilty of believing this. I use to think if I wasn’t doing a HIIT workout, getting my heart rate up and finishing dripping in sweat, it wasn’t a good workout.
Thankfully I know better now!

When it comes to exercise this is what you need to know:

☀️ The BEST type of exercise or workout is the one you actually enjoy and can stick to consistently.

☀️ We know that resistance training is better for the metabolism and fat loss long term – the more lean muscle mass you have the better your metabolism i.e the more fat you burn at rest.

☀️ Any kind of movement is good movement

☀️Too much HIIT style training can be detrimental for long term sustainable female fat loss (hormone health)

So don’t get caught up in thinking you “didn’t workout hard enough” if you didn’t sweat.

Have you fallen in this trap?
