Running Dirty. Eating Clean. Loving Life.

3 Ways to Improve Your Workout – November Blogging Challenge #5

1. Workout with a Friend – Misery DOES love company.  Ok, in all seriousness, having a workout buddy has some serious perks.  You’re more likely to show up and stay at the gym when someone else is counting on you.  You can push and motivate each other through those rough patches.  It’s also fun to have a little friendly competition now and again.  So set a gym date.  

2.  Change it up – Doing the same routine day after day, week after week gets boring. Not only that, but over time, your body will adapt and you’ll see less and less gain.  Change things up for a little variety and to add a little muscle confusion to up the intensity.  Try some new moves to target those muscle groups in different ways or find a new cardio machine to hang out on.  If you’re gym has classes, try a few new ones.  Who knows, maybe you’ll like it!

3.  Hire a personal trainer – This isn’t just a shameless plug.  We really do know what we’re doing and can help you get out of that rut.  A good personal trainer will be able to find a routine that works for you, know how to keep you motivated, and will keep things challenging and fun.
