How many pushups can you do in a row before boredom hits? I know that my exercise routine doesn’t stay the same for long. Sure, there are certain workouts I do every few days, and that is good. But, I also know how easy it is to get tired of repetitive exercises.
When you are excited about a workout, you’re bound to have a more effective one. Trying new ways to stay active will help you appreciate your current activities. Say you are used to trail runs every day. After months of this, you might get tired of the routine. But, add in a yoga class once a week and a volleyball game twice a month. You’ll have fewer trail runs, so you will look forward to them even more.
Give it a try this month- add a few new activities and see how your workouts improve!
Spice up your fitness routine by trying these activities:
Wash the car- The weather is getting nicer and your car is probably dirty. Fill up a bucket of soapy water and get busy making that car sparkle.
Toothbrush exercise- You probably spend two minutes brushing your teeth at least two times a day. Why stand still? Challenge yourself to do lunges or wall sits every time you brush your teeth.
Cardio Kick- We love to make workouts fun. Our kickboxing and boxing workouts are fun and intense. You could burn up to 1000 calories in one hour!
Commercial breaks- If you’re sitting down for an evening television show, why not do something productive during the commercials? Try jumping jacks or burpees.
Local sports clubs- Look for a fun sports club or tournament near you. There are tons of groups that meet weekly to play kickball, sand volleyball, dodgeball and more. The more crazy the game is, the more fun you’ll have.
Be a coach- Whether you have kids or not, being a coach for a kids team is a great way to be active. Look for a community sports team and ask about volunteer opportunities. You won’t be playing the game, but you’ll expend a lot of energy getting the team excited and helping with practice.
