Change is Good!

16 Oct

If you’re stuck doing the same old exercise routine, it’s time to change it up! 

      That’s the thing about the human body, it’s highly adaptive. When you learn to do something new, you become more efficient at doing it. It’s no different with exercise. If you’re not changing your routine every few months then you’re probably not going to make any progress. This is why change is good!

     One the biggest mistakes people make is not changing their routine. I know people who’ve done the same things for YEARS on end. They stop seeing results. I’m not surprised by this. They’ve become so good at doing the same old thing. Time for something new! Like I said, your body is highly adaptive. When you present it with a new challenge, it has no choice but to get better. Whether this means changing your exercise routine or taking on a new hobby. The more frequently you change, the better you become. The better you become, the harder you have to work. It’s a double edged sword for sure, but it’s worth the effort.

Being stuck in a stagnant exercise routine won’t get you far. Try something different and you may just see results. I tried kickboxing for example. It was lots of fun! It also taught me speed and agility. Something I’d otherwise not included in my exercise routine. Don’t be afraid to shake it up a bit. It’ll only benefit your body and mind.

 

Here’s to your health!
