How to get into working out?

I'm having trouble sticking to your exercise protein. I bought an exercise bike and tried to use it for an hour a day but I cannot stick to a plan to use it because I feel so bored during that hour and feel it lasts forever + lack of vision improvement. I know that muscle building / weight loss is due to consistency and diet but I can not be consistent with my exercises, most days I am afraid that I will have to ride this exercise bike

  1. In my own personal experience I have noticed that longer workouts don’t correlate with better results.

    I do a full upper body workout with pullups, dips, leg raises, hand stand pushup untill I can’t lift myself up anymore on monday and recover for a week. Each week I write down how many pull ups and dips I did and then add one more each week. This workout does not take longer than 30 minutes and I don’t get bored.

    The next day I do a 20 minute HIIT workout that target my legs.

    For the rest of the week I just watch my macro’s and caloric intake and the results were fenomenal. This works perfectly if you just want to look good year round with “minimal” effort.

    I can’t stress this enough but diet is the single most important factor in how you look.

  2. Make a playlist and try to listen to the entire thing without thinking about time. Maybe put your bike in front of a TV and watch something that last an hour.

  3. You gotta find your exercise gateway drug. For me it was martial arts – I’m pretty bad at it, but I found a class that I really enjoyed and stuck with it. Now, with that as an anchor, I find it much easier to motivate myself to go to the gym and run, because doing those things makes it easier for me to take part in my martial arts classes. I’ve noticed a similar pattern in friends of mine – one started taking street dance classes, another started bouldering.

  4. Don’t start with 1h. Start with like 20 min, and then slowly increase the amount over time. You need to suck it up a little bit

  5. You don’t like exercising on a bike. Somethingsomethingthebestroutineistheoneyoustickto.

    Try a new exercise method and see how you like that one. Rinse and repeat until you don’t feel the need to post something like this anymore because now you enjoy working out.

  6. You could try watching a netflix show that you only let yourself watch while on the bike – you will find yourself looking forward to your hour on the bike. Also take it easy on the bike so you’re not suffering too much.
    Or you can find something else you enjoy more!

  7. Watch a movie/show if you’re on a stationary bike. OR don’t do stationary bikes, those things are dreadfull for me. Maybe try doing 100 pushups, 100 situps, 100 squats a day?

  8. I suggest you start training instead of exercising. The difference being training is a structured program with goals, milestones and weekly progression. That is how i motivate myself.

    Currently training to get my 5k under 20 min. I downloaded a plan and am working at it. Its exciting seeing my times improve and drives me to continue.

  9. This is why I recommend beginners train with weights. 1 hour of bike riding is boring for most.

    30 minutes of lifting weights anyone can do

  10. Stationary bike is by far the most boring form of physical activity. Try something else until you find an activity you like.

  11. There is some great advice in the comments so far. I totally agree with starting smaller and working up to longer time on the bike. But you also have to find the exercise that you enjoy or else you won’t be able to do it for long. I hate a bike and an elliptical but I love a rower. However, many people hate rowers. Variety also helps me and I try not to do the same thing every day.

    Look into some streaming workouts. Many have free trial periods and those can provide a lot of variety as well. This gives you the opportunity to try different workouts and find what you like. Beachbody on Demand is my favorite and my brother loves Daily Burn.

    And to give you context, I’m in my late 40’s and have been overweight my entire life. But I also have come to love working out and am so much healthier. Don’t give up and remember that it’s about progress, not perfection.

  12. Agree with all the other comments, you’re going balls to the wall which is not good. Building up a routine takes time, then you can expand on that routine. 20 minutes is a good start.

  13. Firstly, 1 hour is very long if you haven’t been working out regularily. Also, variation is key. Of course this varies by person, but I am convinced I’d die from boredom if I had to use the exercise bike for 1h every day, even if I was listening to the best music playlist in the world. I think it’s completely understandable that you aren’t looking forward to your workouts! If I were you, I’d switch up the exercises regularly. You could for instance have three days where you do full body strength training (lots of free routines on the internet) and two days where you train cardio (for instance on your exercise bike). And don’t forget your rest days! This may seem a bit complicated initially, but after you get through, it’ll prolly be easier to stick to the routine since you won’t be bored out of your mind and can actually look forward to exercising.

  14. Make sure you hydrate in the hours leading up to your session. Maybe have a coffee beforehand (NO ENERGY DRINKS). Definitely get some Bose earphones and listen to some bassy pump up music. I would also suggest orienting your bike toward a large window. Getting lost in thought is sometimes a good thing when training. Also don’t ride the bike every day. Firstly your muscles won’t have recovered so it will feel harder and secondly that will get VERY BORING. Humans thrive from novelty. Data show that students who go to new locations to study retain more information. The brain is more active when doing something new so mix up your exercises and you will be more engaged. All this said, It really comes down to your relationship with yourself. YOU need convince YOU to keep pushing. When the inner voice is telling you to stop, actually notice that, lean in to that, challenge it. It’s about self respect. But one more very important thing. Don’t beat yourself up for not finishing a workout or even missing a whole workout. It doesn’t matter. If you’re consistent you’ll just train tomorrow. There’s no rush to health and fitness. Slow and steady and in time you’ll grow to love it. In fact you’ll feel anxious when you can’t train.✌

  15. There is nothing wrong with you, exercising on an indoor bike is boring as hell.
    There are many options for entertaining and enjoyable ways to exercise, all of them have one thing in common: they happen outdoors.

    Trying to force yourself into exercise because you should do it is wrong.
    Find something you enjoy, that’s what all the people did who made exercise a part of their lives.
