I try new exercises weekly. I work out everyday. I will add one and subtract another. If I am doing something that does not challenge a muscle and there is no way to up the resistance I find another one. I do upper body, lower and abdominal resistance exercises throughout so that I am getting good core strengthening. I used dropsets and subsets so that I can do more. I have a hard time seperating them out. I do squats with bicep curls, squats with arm extensions, lunges with bicep curls, squats with overhead press, lunges with boxing moves, squats with lateral arm raises and so on, so that I am being more efficient and using all my body.
I shop around on SP and other sites for ideas. I have reems of ideas from years of exercise. That keeps me intertained and excited. I always enjoy upping my weight resistance. I started ST in Aug. I would do long cardio and then a short ST session. I began SP and then weekly increased my ST time and resistance. It's all so much easier and I find different exercises are so much easier since that time. I hated abdominal exercises but now I am not fond of Upper and lower body weight training as it keeps me SOB. It the best thing for me. Sadly just as it gets easier I up the weight.
It's the best gift I can give to my self!
Just try a new one when the old ones are boring. I am always trying to challenge my extremities with dumbbells, resistance bands and body weight. I hate to move on to another exercise unless its too easy. Sometimes it's nice to have an easy exercise to give you a break when you are tired.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
