With a bit of luck, you have got through your big workout yesterday to set the tone for the week, and maybe you are thinking how you can replicate that impressive start to the week.
Variety then should be your number one way to keep your standards high, your workouts fresh and therefore your progress high too!!!
This is why your workouts apart from weight training and the usual cardio should incorporate so much more!!!
If you have read this thing for a while, then you will know only too well that i love medicine ball work, bosu ball exercises, swiss ball work, and boxing workouts.
These exercises will work your body in a different way and often reach the hard to get areas that traditional exercise doesn’t seem to get near!!!
All of these different forms of exercise tend to hammer your core much more deeply than a more traditional workout. They are so successful that i consider these forms of training as my “traditional” form workout!!!
Once you have your traditional form of training change, then its at this point when exercising becomes “exciting again”, which is down to the variety AND effectiveness of your training, which in turn produces the big results that we are all after!!!
The best way to incorporate these types of training is to package various exercises into groups of 3.
For example, you could do medicine ball press ups, with alternate squat thrusts, and then finish it off with rope work we like to do at the gym all the time. Let me straight away that the group of three just mentioned may well be the hardest combination you could pick.
Of course, exercise selection depends entirely on your fitness ability and what you can handle.
It’s always better to start off cautiously and we will be discussing much more of this tomorrow!!!
