2 Simple Ways to Avoid a Workout Rut

Working out and training hard should be a habit but this doesn´t mean it has to become a tedious routine. Yes, consistency is always the key to improvement yet in order to stay consistent it is also important to keep your workouts fun and interesting. The following tips can help spice up your training so that you avoid a workout rut.

2 Ways to Keep Your Workouts Fun

  • Challenge a partner. One good way to ensure that you don´t get bored of your workout and to encourage improvement is to take part in a little healthy competition. Invite a friend, teammate, acquaintance or family member to join you in your workout and you can both compete in regards to who can complete more sets or finish the workout in less time. Make sure you do this with someone who is at your fitness level so that it can be fun for the both of you.
  • Beat the beat. You don´t always need a partner to have a little competition, sometimes the best way is to challenge yourself. However, this isn´t always the simplest task but with a little music, everything becomes more fun. Pick a song that you find upbeat and fun and select a certain amount of exercises that you want to complete then challenge yourself to finish the before the song is over. This will keep you concentrated and will help you work hard without feeling overly overwhelmed. Be sure to read this previous post for information on how to listen to music safely when working out.
