World Cup Football: Which Group Do You Fit Into?
With the FIFA World Cup starting today, which Group do you fit into, what is your ‘exercise’ group?
Group A: Brazil, Croatia, Mexico and Cameroon: pressure and expectation…..is this what is putting you off exercise? Stop making excuses and get out there, start in small manageable bursts and build upon them.
Group B: Spain, Holland, Chile and Australia: Willing but not wonderful, or all or nothing? Does this sum up your approach to training? Make a regular slot in your weekly schedule to exercise with a friend and build upon your training achievements.
Group C: Colombia, Greece, Ivory Coast, Japan: lacking in creativity? Start a new exercise-based hobby that you haven’t tried before.
Group D: Uruguay, Costa Rica, England, Italy: Manager too cautious? Are you pushing yourself a bit further each week? Build up your training schedule, just started running?..add 5 minutes on each week…
Group E: Switzerland, France, Ecuador, Honduras: Indiscipline the problem with sticking to your training regime? Join exercise classes, group motivation and peer pressure will help carry you through…
Group F: Argentina, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Iran, Nigeria: Over-confident, under-confident? Seek advice from the professionals, your physio or personal trainer can advise on progressing your training.
Group G: Germany, Portugal, Ghana, USA: Erratic approach? Aim to build a consistent approach each week to your fitness regime.
Group H: Belgium, Algeria, Russia, South Korea: Qualities to surprise? Be proud of your achievements in your training, congratulate yourself on your weekly progress.
Play to your strengths….Organise a 5-aside football match with your friends before you all sit down to watch a match, national guidelines for physical activity recommend a minimum of 150 minutes of moderate physical activity per week, all of which can be accumulated in bursts of 10 minute activity. A 20 to 30 minute 5-aside match will help towards your weekly target.
