Keeping It Fresh - Avoiding Boredom In The Gym

Many people start a workout program with the best of intentions, only to “fall off the wagon” a few months later. One of the most common reasons for this is simple boredom. I’ll admit doing the same workout routine week after week can be a little monotonous. So if your workout is a little dull, and you find yourself dreading the gym, try switching things up!

There are many ways to modify your workout routine. You can increase or decrease the repetitions or sets of resistance training exercises you’re doing. If you are splitting up your routine into upper and lower body workouts, try splitting them into pushing (chest/triceps) and pulling (back/biceps) exercises. Or you could liven things up with anterior (chest/quads/biceps) and posterior (hamstring/back/triceps) workouts.

Of course, completely new and different routines will keep things fresh and interesting. You could try band resistance, plyometrics, aerobic classes, or interval training.

Remember to change your cardiovascular training as well. Instead of walking on a treadmill, try cycling or swimming. If  you normally take classes, try an elliptical machine or stair stepper to slow things down a little. When you are reinventing your workouts, the most important thing is to be creative, diverse, and have fun!
