You’ve probably heard it a thousand times that you shouldn’t be using a smartphone when you’re working out. While it’s true that you will get the best results if you focus on doing the exercises without any distractions, there are still ways your phone can help you.
Use it for Measuring
There are many different apps that can help you measure all kinds of data. This can help you track progress and adjust your workouts when it’s the most optimal.
You can download apps that have guided workouts you can do at home. Some of them are free, while others require payment, but they are a great way to get a training routine that fits you the best without having to go to the gym and paying month after month.
Most of the time, watching Netflix on your phone is not the best way to distract yourself from the workout session as you need to actually pay attention to what you’re doing. But if you want to ride a stationary bike for half an hour or walk on the treadmill, there’s no reason why you can’t watch something distracting at the same time.
