Your body needs to experience new things, so you need to change your workout routine every 4 weeks. The problem is that most of us don’t even
have time to work out on a regular basis, let alone sit down and create a new workout plan. So here are some creative tricks and tips that I use with my clients.
1. Change the order you do your exercises:
If you do cardio before your weights, try switching the order. If you work out your legs first, try starting with your shoulders or arm exercises and then moving to your legs. Although these are small changes, your body will notice and your results will improve.
2. Simple changes to your cardio:
If you regularly run on the treadmill at a high speed and a low incline, try mixing it up with a high incline and a moderate speed. Or try interval training by changing speeds every 2-3 minutes from a sprint to a fast walk.
3. Change up your weights:
This is all about tricking your body. If you usually do 12-15 reps with 10 lbs, try doing 8-10 reps with 15 lbs. Remember, weight lifting is an important key to changing your body. Don’t think that lifting weights will make you big and bulky; it takes a lot of dietary supplements and expertise training to create a bulk.
4. Add new moves:
All it takes is picking up a Health & Fitness Magazine or going on to YouTube. This takes less than 5 minutes and it gives you that excitement of trying something new! Try adding plyometrics or explosive exercises to your workout. These moves are created for fast body transformations and are used in my Urban Hiit and Body Burner Classes.
5. Mix and match your fitness classes:
You might stumble across a class that really suites you and makes exercising fun again! The bonus is you don’t have to think about what machine or what exercise you’re going to do next in a busy sweaty gym because the teacher is there to do that for you! Try out a few of TeckFitness's classes, boot camps or book me for a one.on.one.
Feeling weak, anxious and unconnected to my body lead me to start exercising. I joined a dance class once a week and after every dance class I had a glow about me, and it wasn't just from the sweat that I built up in class, it was something more. I realized it was the endorphins that were being produced from the physical activity I was doing. Join me and start moving and feel the difference. Read my blog to get motivation, try the exercises I've posted, contact me for personal training, bootcamps, workout cards or just go for a walk. Any activity is good activity.
