“New year, new me!” That’s a popular motto as many of us are determined to kick off the new year in the most optimal way. Who wouldn’t want to start the new year happier, healthier, faster and stronger?
The question is: How to do that exactly?
- How to hone your workout routine to deliver the optimal results?
- How to find fresh workout ideas that will allow you to unleash your full potential?
Here’s how to do all that, but first, let’s quickly recap why it’s a good idea to shake up your fitness routine.
WHY SHOULD YOU VARY YOUR WORKOUT ROUTINE?
It’s easy to get caught up in doing what you know, repeating the same familiar exercises. We all find ourselves stuck in the comfort zone from time to time, but there comes a point where routine starts to get not only boring but even risky – harmful for your body and detrimental for your fitness results.
Alternating between working different muscle groups, while allowing other muscles time to recover, is much healthier for your body, not to mention more motivating mentally.
In the long run, monotonous exercise increases the risk for injury as repeating the same exercises over and over again inflicts continuous physical strain on specific muscle groups and tendons.
So, if you’ve been repeating the same old for a while – and not seeing results – it may be time to try something new… If not for the sake of better fitness, then do it for pleasure – you know, just for fun.
Here are the three key elements you can tweak to spice up your workout routine.
