Keep Your Body Guessing!

I switch up my workout routine EVERY time I work out. I swim 3 days a week, but each session is a different amount of laps and different ways of swimming (legs/arms only, breast stroke, back stroke, etc.) I also go to the gym 3 days a week. I do different types of cardio each time (20 minutes at the beginning, weights, 10 minutes at the end), and also Monday and Friday are my "Leg" days and Wednesday is my "Arms" day.

I haven't gotten stuck on a plateau yet, and it makes the workouts fun!!!!

    So very true, will need to see what can do with new schedule to maybe incorporate more swimming for cardio that may be the jump start I need. I find incorporating new activities helps a lot.

    Good reminder! It's great for motivation and keeping your body guessing...
