When you do the same thing every day, you do not challenge your body. You do not work different muscles or challenge the muscles. It is hard because you have to think of new things to do and change your life up. On the other hand, your chance of boredom is less.

Unfortunately I am guilty of consistency, though I am trying to work on variety.

I have read that the best way to keep at your exercise routine is to keep doing it the same all the time. I see a number of people get on one machine and stay there for the duration.

I find it is best for me to work in three and sometimes four different aerobic exercises when I go to the gym. For me it is easier on the brain and body but accomplishes what I am after.

During this time of year I pretty much skip the gym in favor of some walks and a 3+ hour hike each week. I will return more to the gym when I must because of weather.

This year has been my best for the last twelve for hiking. Have endured four climbs of six hours or more. St Helens took me almost nine and a half hours. Not something I would recommend but it works for me.

??What do you do?? Variety or Consistency????



It's all good
