Workout Wednesday: New Years

You needed neither that second serving nor the extra round of drinks. Yet you indulged. Aren't the holidays about good times with loved ones, great food, and merrymaking? Anyway, beginning Jan. 1, you will eat healthier and work out. Starting then, you will get fit. This will be your New Year's resolution. Life will be better after December. Sound familiar? It should if you're one of the millions of people who find themselves unsatisfied with their excess body weight or sluggish physical condition at the turn of the calendar. In fact, about a third of New Year's resolvers make weight loss their primary goal, and about 15% aim to begin an exercise program, suggests a small study John C. Norcross, PhD, professor of psychology at the University of Scranton, Pa. Unfortunately, this resolution doesn’t last past 30 days or so. Research shows the following on how long they stick with their resolutions:

  • Past the first week: 75% • Past two weeks: 71%
  • After one month: 64%
  • After six months: 46%

To maintain and promote health the ACSM and AHA recommend a minimum of 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity on five days per week or vigorous-intensity aerobic activity for a minimum of 20 minutes on three days each week. Moderate-intensity aerobic activity is characterized by a brisk walk that noticeably accelerates your heart rate. Vigorous-intensity activity causes rapid breathing and a substantial increase in your heart rate.
