Don’t Get Bored With Exercise… Switch It Up!!!

Happy Hump Day! Well today is day 8 of our 30 day challenge! How are things going? Well things are going good this way just trying to take my exercise to the next level where I am truly being challenged and getting enough time in the gym. Eventually we can get used to a certain routine and our bodies end up getting adjusted to it as well and its stops being as effective as it initially was. It’s always a good idea to switch things up or add more intensity to a workout once you have mastered your current workout plan. It helps you to get closer to your desired results & switching things up also helps you to stay engaged & keeps you from getting bored! How many of you have gotten bored with a workout and then all of sudden your motivation for continuing ends? Me too! I’ve been there too many times before.  Well with the weather warming up I’m looking forward to incorporating some outside exercises in my fitness routine as well. Do you need some ideas to get started?

Here are some outside options:

1) Walking/Jogging/Running in the morning, on your break, lunch or after work.

2) Hiking on an inclined/hilly path.

3) Playing basketball, Dodgeball, flag football, tennis, softball, volleyball, soccer in a pick up game or in a spring/summer/fall league.

4) Swimming

5) Exercises that can be done outside like jumping jacks, lunges, running in place, etc…

What other outside exercise ideas do you have? I would love to hear from you!

Well I hope this will motivate you to switch things up! Tomorrow sounds like a good day to get started! Let me know how it goes!

Let’s get it!
