“The secret to your success is found in your daily routine”.
I’m sure you have heard this quote, or one similar, on one of the million ‘inspirational quotes’ accounts on Instagram. Nowadays, it seems that routine is everywhere. The phrase “morning routine” gets over 50,000 Google searches a month, with people hoping that waking up earlier, meditating, or spending 15 minutes in a freezing cold shower will in some way improve their life. While there is some sense in this, the true power of a routine is actually rooted in consistency. Doing each of the previously listed activities once a week will make little, to no difference in your life. However, the compounding effect of doing these small tasks day in, day out, repeatedly - for a prolonged period of time would have a big effect!
When it comes to working out, consistency of routine is key. From the moment you decide to workout up until the minute you step in the shower every step of your routine is intentional, methodical, time-sensitive, and product-oriented, except one. The hour after you finish a workout.
Think about it: you own certain shoes and equipment for your different fitness activities. Your warm up is structured and time bound. Your exercise is a cadenced program of sets and reps. If you are really diligent you might even conduct a proper cool down to make sure your muscles are primed for tomorrow. Once you leave the gym you even have an after workout routine with a pre-prepared meal, to maximize gains, portioned to contain the right amount of macro and micro nutrients. But after all this methodical planning, you then make a mad dash to shower and change to get to work or return to activities of your day.
