BFP - Episode 3

 


Why? Fitness should be a lifestyle and how long will you do the exact same thing before you get tired of it? In most cases not very long, so incorporating variety will help you remain consistent. So, how can you incorporate variety? Let’s take a look at three simple ways to start making your training regimen exciting again:

1. Replace all steady state cardio with interval training

Outside of being excruciatingly boring, hopping on the treadmill or the elliptical and going at the same steady pace has been proven to be less effective at burning fat.

    1. Tabata (Japanese researcher Izumi Tabata first developed the system in 1996)
    2. AMRAP
    3. EMOM

2. Ditch the Machines for Free Weights

Machines isolate single muscle groups and can only be used in the way they were designed. Free weights can move through space freely and provide you with an infinite amount of movement patterns that engage multiple muscle groups

    • Dumbbells
    • Kettlebells
    • Barbells
    • Sandbags
    • Med Balls

3. Get integrated into a Fitness Community You Enjoy

  • Variety in Training
  • Accountability/Support
