Generally once or even a few times a year we will get really motivated to start working out and get fit. This spike in motivation may come from watching the Olympics, New Year’s resolutions, or maybe even just a fancy new set of workout clothes and we will run right out and get a gym membership, absolutely determined to exercise for an hour a day. However, as time goes by our motivation tapers off, we make excuses, and we resume our sedentary lifestyle.
“But I just don’t have time to work out!”
Is that your standard excuse for not being as active as you know you should? Well that argument may no longer be valid. Recent studies have shown that fractionalized exercise, or exercise split into short segments throughout the day may be just as effective as exercising for one solid chunk of time.
