3 Exercises to Keep Your Workouts Challenging

Exercise can sometimes feel like a chore -- something you have to do instead of something you get to do.

We often fall into a fitness rut, returning to exercises that we have been doing for a long time or are comfortable with.

But not challenging yourself can sabotage your results and stop you from accomplishing your goals.

How to Add Variety to Your Workouts

Your body is quick to adapt to routines, and once it adapts you stop seeing the results you want in the mirror or on the scale.

So the first tip is to try new exercises. To help get you started, here are some of our favorite variations to exercises that you may have done before:

Now that you have new exercises to incorporate into your routine, here is one more tip on how to keep things challenging:

Change up your reps

Doing more reps with less weight, or fewer reps with more weight will challenge your muscles in different ways.

So for your next routine, try increasing the reps for 2-4 weeks, then try decreasing your reps but upping the weight for 2-4 weeks.

Then move onto some new exercises altogether and start again!
