I’m use to playing sports all year long, but now that it is summer I’ve got nothing to do. And I want to stay looking good. Any tips for staying in shape?
Hey Tdog! I like where your heads at…gotta keep it tight for the ladies 🙂
So, lots of school athletes go through the ‘summer lull’…sitting on the couch, lounging by the pool, eating from roadside frybread stands and thesnow cones. And, I’m sure your coaches will be giving you the lecture on staying active this summer too…so how are you gonna do that?
In a couple words, ‘make it fun’. By doing things you like, you’re more likely to keep doing it. If you’re not a morning person or a gym person and youtry going to the gym at 5:30 in the morning for triple-x double intensity boot camp, you’ll probably get burnt out pretty quickly and stop going.
