Are you stuck in the loop of doing the same workouts over and over again? It may be time to switch things up! Here’s why:
If you do the same routine over and over again, your body eventually adapts and gets used to it. This slows your progress and you may even stop seeing changes entirely. Changing your routine will provide your body with a new stimulus. As a result, your body will have to work harder to adjust to the new challenge, leading to more progress over time.
When you do the same movements repeatedly, the muscles and joints used in those movements won’t have sufficient time to recover. Over time, this wear and tear can lead to injuries. Doing a variety of exercises will stress different areas of your muscles – including smaller, stabilizer muscles. This will give your body a chance to heal as it builds. It's also highly recommended to include regular, mobility sessions in your routine to improve blood flow and range of motion.
Improves Cognitive Health
Adding variety to your workouts is also beneficial for your brain. When you do different forms of exercise, you challenge your brain just as much as your body. These new and different stimuli and focuses keep your brain alert, healthy and active. If you want to maximize this effect, try forms of exercise that are new to you or that you find challenging.
Diversifying your workouts will also prevent you from becoming bored or feeling unmotivated to exercise. Try new forms of movement and switch up your workouts regularly so that they remain interesting. Simple tweaks such as adding sprint intervals to your regular runs or using bands in strength workouts can go a long way in adding some variety to your workouts. You will get better results and have more fun when you mix things up!
