KEEP YOUR MUSCLES GUESSING

Having an exercise routine is a great idea- it keeps you consistent with working out and making it part of your day. But one of the most common mistakes people make with exercise is repeating the same routine week after week. To continue to improve your fitness level and reap the benefits of regular exercise you must keep your body guessing.
Varying your routine can give your muscles more of a challenge. By using different muscle groups, you render higher levels of fitness. You can do this by:

  • Walking, running or biking at different paces or vary your route to include flat terrain and a variety of hills.
  • Varying the exercise machines you use in the cardio room.
  • Varying weight resistance exercises by using hand weights, weight machines and resistance bands.
  • Doing a variety of core and body weight exercises such as planks, sit ups, and pushups.
  • Trying a variety of exercise classes

· Being active in outdoor activities such as hiking, swimming, golf, tennis, gardening and yard work.

Healthy eating is important for muscles to recover and build after exercise if it is aerobic or strength training.  It is important to include foods that contain protein and carbohydrates for recovery. The more different types of food you eat the more different types of vitamins, mineral and other nutrients you consume. Be sure to eat a variety in every food group: grains, vegetables, fruits, lean protein, low-fat dairy foods and healthy fats.

Remember “variety is the spice of life”.
