Is It Time for a Change?
Imagine that you had to eat the same dinner every night of the week; after a few days you'd really start to get sick of it. The same thing happens to your body when you engage in the exact same workout time after time. Making subtle changes to your exercise routine can help your body build more muscle and lose weight more quickly because it's unaccustomed to the new program. Always use a treadmill for your five-minute warm-up? Try jumping rope or running up and down a flight of stairs instead; or try another piece of cardio equipment, like an elliptical machine. Sometimes even changing the order of things helps, so try doing the second exercise in your superset first. Challenge yourself to keep finding new ways to surprise yourself.
