Do you ever feel like you are putting everything into your workouts but not seeing the results? I know, it has happened to me too! UGH! How frustrating…..wake up, workout, repeat…over and over!
It happens to the best of us, not that I am saying I’m one of the ‘best of us’ or anything! But, when we get ‘stuck in a rut’ doing the same routines day in and day out our bodies can sort of stop reacting. Think of how you get efficient at certain tasks, making a recipe over and over again for example. You get better at it, more efficient and it slowly requires less thought and effort. Well, your body does that too….geez, we are so smart and we don’t even know it! Too smart for our own good, actually.
Here’s another angle on the same phenomenon: Your body is like a chameleon (love that visual!). You’ve adapted to the workouts you have been doing week in and week out. You need a change of scenery…a bit of a different color gradient.
Don’t get me wrong, sometimes the same old, comfortable workout routines are great, especially if you simply love how they feel and they fit well into your routine. But, if you need a bump or boost to get to the next level, if you want a little stimulation or more fitness sensation---you gotta switch it up!
So, if you’re thinking, ‘Gee, this workout is cozy, comfy’ and you can go on autopilot during the second set of lunges, you might be missing some metabolic boosting or muscle stimulation. You might be stuck in a RUT. And, you’re not alone.
It’s time to ‘shake-it-up’! It’s good to get out of your routine and do something different. It just may spark your metabolism, stimulate your muscles and even inspire your MIND! Try this workout….let me know what you think.
