Try to change up your routine at least once every 6-8 weeks.
Try new exercises, add some intervals, try a new class or increase the intensity of your session. These are just some of the ways to keep you well on the way to achieving your goals.
Interval Training – if you have been doing steady state cardio exercise such as 5k distance on the treadmill at 2.0% incline and at a speed of 10.0KPH try adding some intervals once a week. Perform 2 minutes at 9.5KPH and 30 seconds and 13.0KPH repeat for 10 intervals.
Weight Training – if you normally use fixed resistence machines chat to a personal trainer or fitness professional about introducing free weights to your routine. It will give you a boost and provide flexibiltiy while training at peak times whilst training the muscle groups from different angles to give a more rounded and complete result.
Cardio – If you always use the fixed bikes or xtrainers in the gym, go and try a spin class. This will seriously up the intensity of your cardiovascular workout and show you how hard you really can push yourself!
