1) Life is so much easier when you stop trying to be cool and impress others and simply do more of who you really are – in my case a Kevin Keegan perm in the 70’s and wearing Farah slacks which were so tight that self-castration was a distinct possibility every time I tried to sit down. What? You mean I’m not alone? You’ve had such wardrobe malfunctions too?

Find out what time of time is best for you to write. I do my very best writing first thing in the morning, but this is not the case for everyone. Give yourself a great gift by writing at different times of the day and then deciding which time is right for you. Just knowing this fact could change your experience with writer’s block forever.

Sitting and spinning on the bike utilizes the quads and glutes. Standing utilizes the hamstrings and calves if you focus on pulling up the pedals with your legs and pushing down with your shoulders. This will also begin to incorporate the upper body into the workout. Adjusting the handlebar to a lower level will introduce core training into the mix. Heavier tension helps build strength. Higher cadence, pedal speed, tones and aids in flushing lactic acid from muscles as they fatigue. Remember to maintain a good cadence when recovering for this reason. Spinning backwards integrates more muscle groups into the routine and can add variety to the workout. Various positions of the hands can further introduce muscle groups to the workout.

If you start writing and then get stuck, go outside and walk around, or, if the weather is not good enough to do that, exercise inside your house. When you get the blood pumping to your brain your writing will flow more easily.

Stop smoking. Smoking is bad for you, as most people know. It is especially bad for you heart and lungs, clogging your arteries and making it more difficult for your heart to pump blood round your body. As if you needed another reason to quit!

Your overall body type will decide the program you will use. I use a fat burning muscle building workout program because it works for me and it is very affordable. At 40 years of age I am in the best shape of my life. You can do it there is nothing stopping you.
