If you’re pretty consistent with a fitness routine (and by consistent we don’t mean the same time every day, or same days every week especially when you’re someone who is always on the go), it can be easy to hit a plateau. Living the traveling lifestyle, we don’t have set routines daily, but if fitness is important to you, you find a way to make it work. If you keep doing the same workouts over and over, chances are your body is going to come to a point where change isn’t going to occur and you’ll just be maintaining your weight or physique. Change can be scary, with anything, but if you are seeking results and aren’t seeing any differences, your body probably has hit a standstill. It’s time for a challenge. If you’re new to working out, these tips are also beneficial for you! Here are a few ways you can start challenging yourself in your workouts.
With any new workout regimen or exercise that you are new to or not familiar with performing, It’s always important to start slowly and gradually work your way up whether that’s adding weights, increasing weights, increasing reps, or adding in ploys. Always be careful when lifting weights, or when you are performing an exercise by making sure you are using correct form. Start with weights that aren’t super heavy and practice until you get the form right, before increasing your weights. There are a ton of helpful videos on YouTube for many exercises to start learning correct form or to learn a new exercise. If you are new to working out in general, specifically with weights, read up on our tips on our blog post here: “Weightlifting and Strength Training Tips.”
