Over the years I have spoken to many people about their gym routines and it really isn’t a surprise to hear them say they have done the same workout for months, even years!
This is a common problem which needs addressing!
When you begin a workout, at first it may appear challenging, however after 5-6 weeks of the same routine, your body becomes a lot more efficient, meaning the amount of calories you burn will reduce. This means, you will need to change the workout routine set.
Here’s my tips:
- Change your program every 5-6 weeks – At this stage your body is starting to get used to the exercises your putting it through so you need to change the exercises being performed
- Up your weights – To increase the challenge in your routine
- Cut your rest period down – Lets face it….we can rest when at home
- Speed up your runs by doing interval training or sprints
All of the above changes would make a big difference in terms of being able to reach your goals and also to prevent continuous boredom as a result of a repeating workout program.
