Heck, we’ve just passed the Winter Solstice, which means we’ve gotten past the shortest day of the year, but there’s still another 2 months of short days, cooler terms and gloomy skies. Your favourite bathers and glorious sun-kissed tans are still a while off… BUT! You don’t have to succumb to winter blues. Nuh-uh, not on our watch.
We get it, some days you’re absolutely swamped with work, family time or too ‘busy’ having a Game of Thrones marathon, all of which are totally legitimate excuses to skip the gym. But, if you fall under the category of loathing workout time and the prospect gives you a migraine, don’t fret!
I you’re still not entirely convinced that the plant based diet is for you and think red meat is life, especially when it comes to building muscle and keeping lean, hold on a sec – just take a look at these vegan bodybuilders that prove you don’t need meat to bulk up.
Braving the elements in the middle of winter is not everyone’s thing. And plodding up and down on a treadmill can be as boring as bat poo. So what are you to do keep your body moving and the blood pumping?
“Summer bodies are built in winter” … [Groan]. We’ve all read the personal trainer's favourite bumper sticker but it doesn’t make it any easier to crawl out from under your warm blanket when it’s 5am and 4 degrees. But before you roll back over for just 10 more minutes, it sounds like your way-too-energetic-for-5am personal trainer just might be right.
