Train effectively # 2 – train the way you like

I decided to ask friends and strangers (e.g. from Instagram or FB) about their recipe for effective training. This is a request for 2-3 sentences and a photo to be used on my websites (Train Effectively, etc.). You can take part in it too. Your website (link to Insta, fb, www, wherever you want!) Will be marked and promoted 🙂 Apply to priv on I., FB or by e-mail.

Klaudyna Andrijewska was the first to submit her recipe to me. I met Andrijewski probably at some party related to food (or rather – not eating meat), so we probably ate vegan cakes together 🙂

Train the way you like, listen to your body and do what you like.

These are actually three recipes in one 🙂 I am spreading these recipes and interpreting them my way, write me how you see it!

“Train the way you like” – as far as I am concerned, as much as possible, as much as possible, so as to dream about a shower and a meal. Well, but not always … Sometimes I do light training. I can do 2 series of exercises and instead of 2 minutes break I will take 5 minutes, because e.g. I will be busy with work or reading something too much 🙂

How do you like to train?

“Listen to your body” – a very important skill. It will save you from overtraining, injury, divorce… 😉 Schedule… (remember that I will gladly write you training! Write to me by e-mail – I give it at the bottom of the article) plan … you know you have to stick to it However, when we have problems with concentration, appetite, we are irritable, we get tired quickly, our heart rate is high, we feel weak, we are still in pain… it must be taken into account. This is how I try to listen to my body.

“Do what you like” – for me it’s usually THERE WILL BE PAIN, so maybe that’s it? 😉 Or maybe to relax sometimes and not get ready for the Olympics. Not to force yourself to practice any technique or sport at any cost, despite pain and reluctance. Better to choose pleasures. Only we decide what is pleasant for us, not others. And let’s stick to that 🙂 Well, unless the trainer told us to – THEN WE DO IT (such an exception)!

If you want to start training effectively, write to me on e-mail – I will also help with dietary topics. I have papers for it (rather black, black and white), I do not copy-paste and I try to analyze in depth what is happening with the pupils, but I also require contact and information.


Train effectively #1 – train with someone, compete

If you need motivation, then train with another person – with someone you know, it can also be a trainer, training group, cycling group, swimming, skiing, cross-country or start in competitions (despite the Covid pandemic, some of them take place, with a full sanitary regime of course!) – it will certainly motivate you (just do not overdo it with the rivalry at the beginning)

What will give us training with the other person? Additional motivation to go to training – we finally made an appointment with the other person and we will not cancel the meeting at the last minute! It can also increase our confidence during training. A joint exit can convince us that running in bad weather, even when people do not want to go out with dogs for a walk, is acceptable 😉 In addition, two people who go to train together (e.g. running, cycling) can be safer, and in case of problems – every two heads are not one.

A training group or a cycling, skiing, running group are further elements of support. There are people at different levels of sports, you can race with someone, learn something new. We will feel that we are also part of SOMETHING – a group with similar passions! Cyclists can ride “on a wheel”, sometimes changing places and reach speeds or distances that are difficult or impossible to reach on their own. Swimmers (open waters) or skyrunners, skitourers will also need support – safety first of all!

Groups are often run by professional, licensed sports coaches – if you have questions, you can get answers that actually have support in scientific research or are consistent with the current state of the art of coaches in the world. A good trainer, is one who educates himself, analyse and changes various training elements if they do not work properly on a person. There are no universal workouts! At least I think so and the workouts That I develop for people, adapt to goals, people and other factors.

If you need a schedules, please email me.

Starting in competitions is another level of support. First – the motivation is even stronger, because as we made an appointment with friends and did not come, they probably do not take us money from the wallet 😉 And by signing up for competitions we pay for start, package, organization and other things. Money is a good motivation – after all, we have already spent it and somehow so stupid to lose it. If you are looking for sports competitions, you do not know if you can or how to choose the best for you (even if you want to win them… I will help with the analysis: ) – then report to me for an e-mail – I will help.

Competition motivates well, but not all. There are people who do not suffer to lose, so they do not race.

It is worth remembering that always the biggest competition or opponent we are ourselves. Ideally, ourselves from the past. It is worth comparing ourselves with who we were.

If you want to start training effectively, write me an email – I will help in many sports fields.
