A new book from the fitness guru Tim Ferriss may be the most practical guide to yoga and other forms of fitness for anyone who’s ever been a gym rat.
It’s called “Get Fit for Less,” and Ferriss has been promoting the book with the goal of reducing the amount of time he spends in the gym by 40 percent.
He also has a new video that introduces readers to his “100 Things You Should Do Before You Die” program, a way to keep them active and fit while they’re at home.
Read on to find out what’s in this book and what Ferriss is aiming for in his final book.
What is the “100 things” he wants to improve?
“The biggest thing is to be active,” Ferriss told HuffPost.
“I want to do more walking and walking and running, more running.
It takes a long time to get up in the morning.
It took me 10 minutes.
I want to spend the whole day doing this, and I think that’s a good idea.”
Here’s what Ferress is talking about in his book.
Make sure your workouts are done right The way Ferriss sees it, a good workout is like a big family.
“A workout is just like a little birthday party,” he told HuffPost, adding, “If I didn’t do it right, it wouldn’t be a birthday party.”
That means that it’s important to have fun, and to take the time to make sure that the exercise itself is fun, too.
Make it an active time in the day Get up in front of the TV, make sure your phone’s connected to the internet, and go to the gym.
Don’t wait until later in the evening to take a walk or go to a gym.
“There’s so many things you can do during the day,” Ferrison said.
“But at the same time, you need to stay active.
You need to be getting out of bed, eating healthy, having a good night’s sleep.”
Learn how to do a variety of activities to make it more fun What’s more, Ferriss doesn’t shy away from challenging himself.
“It’s like a puzzle,” he said.
You have to figure out what works and what doesn’t work, what’s important and what’s not.
“You’ve got to go through this whole thing of thinking: What do I want in this workout?
Is it a workout for me?
Is this really for me?”
Find your fitness goal Get started by doing the exercises you’d normally do — say, a yoga class — and then do something more challenging or challenging-sounding.
For example, take the yoga class you normally do and try doing a different pose.
“Just doing that, it’ll just feel like a chore,” Ferrisson said.
Then add in something like walking, running, or other activities that you might find more challenging, like biking or hiking.
Make the program flexible so that you can change your goals The more you do the program, the more you’ll be able to adjust your goals.
“The first step is just figuring out what you’re going to do in your life in the future,” Ferrion said.
This is also why you want to set a schedule that’s flexible enough so that if you’re interested in doing a yoga or Pilates class, you can try it once a week and see how you feel.
“If you do it once every week and you keep doing it, that’s going to change the whole way you think about it,” he added.
Make adjustments if you notice a change in your progress or fitness After a while, you’ll start noticing that your progress has slowed down, for example, or you start noticing changes in your body that might indicate that you need more work or a change.
“Once you notice it, you have to find a way of adjusting,” Ferrides said.
For him, the goal is to get to the point where you can start doing yoga, running or other forms that you enjoy doing, even if it’s just to get out of the house.
“Now you’re in the right position to move forward with your life and do it again,” he emphasized.
Get a plan to follow Ferriss says the plan he developed in his last book, “The 5,000-Day Program,” is an important piece of advice.
“Make sure that your goal is the same every day, every day,” he explained.
“That’s the most important thing.
Every day you have an exercise plan that’s very specific.
That’s what you need.
You can’t do everything.”
“I would say the biggest thing in this [book] is to make your goals and your plan flexible,” he continued.
“When I started this program, I was on a treadmill.
I was doing that every day.
But when I started doing yoga instead of doing that for 10 minutes a day, I could do yoga for an hour, a
