18 Oct Becoming dad brings the fatigue to a whole new level – Here is how it can help you achieve your goals!
My son was born last week on a Sunday (10/09/2011) , which was a great experience and quite a relevation. I had no idea what fatigue really meant before :). Now I took a week off to get to know my son and my workouts I knew would be more sporadic and not as planned as usual.
This Monday was my first day back on the regular schedule, including my workouts. Now, it is amazing how tired you can be, especially if you are stupid enough to stay up late.
Research has shown that sleep is imperative for being successful on all levels, may that be work, exercise, weight loss and so on. Personal training or boot camps can only be successful if you are willing to do your part. Especially with having a newborn child and wanting to be a good dad sleep and exercise is important.
The plan from now on is to allow myself at least an 8 hour of sleeping period, which will not necessarily happen because my son is going to wake me up, but still it will still be more sleep than I have now.
To get the most out of your training make sure you allow an 8 hour window for sleep, you have at least 3-4 meals a day and exercise 4-5 days a week. Give yourself 2-3 days of rest.
Dedicated to your success
