Here is today's FITNESS GUIDE tip:
Try Something New
The number one enemy of fitness? We mean, besides grilled cheese and bacon sandwiches. It's boredom. Now that you're accustomed to your regular routine, try shaking things up!
New activities challenge both your body and your mind. If you do the same exercises over and over, you'll work the same muscle groups. You will see benefits in the beginning, but once your body becomes accustomed to the exercise routine, you'll reach a plateau.
This week, treat your exercise life the way couples who've been together for a long time are supposed to treat their sex lives. Spice things up. Sign up for a new class or try a new sport. Rock climbing, yoga, surfing, dance -- be adventurous! Even if you stick to your usual exercise routine, you can still make it different. Speed up your pace, incorporate sprints or intervals, and change your course and add some hills to your route.
