Why change your workout?

August 4th, 2011 by Lou Leave a reply »

There are times when we need to do something different; change things around. This is true at home, in relationships, place of employment, etc. Exercise in no different.

So, what are the signs indicating a change is required or prudent? Here’s a list of five:
1) Boredom
2) Loss of appetite
3) Insomnia
4) Lack of enthusiasm
5) Distraction

Boredom will occur when the workouts are no longer challenging; when the workout routine becomes…well…just that; “routinish”

Believe it or not loss of appetite is closely associated with boredom. When the exercise routine becomes monotonous it will drag you down.

Insomnia can occurs when your training too much or late at night. Your body gets hyped or pumped and you just can’t fall asleep. You may also be running on “nervous energy” or adrenaline.

Again a monotonous workout will lead to lack of enthusiam in which case a change is recommended.

When one’s distracted while working out, it can lead to injury or worse.

As you can see all of the above are closely related or intertwine.

Depending on your goals, you may need to do more cardio or more resistance training. Remember, you can keep your workouts fresh by incorporating exercises from time to time that are not in your ususal repertoire.
