Often times we get stuck in a routine that leaves us not only bored, but can also lead to injuries. If you go into any gym most of the time there are a lot of people doing bench presses, biceps curls, and abdominal exercises. Over time, this usually leads to poor posture, rounded shoulders, and a variety of other injuries. In order to see the best results, make sure to vary your routines to avoid injuries and a rut. For Example, try some of these suggestions:
- Try swimming once per week
- Join a yoga class to improve flexibility and posture
- Play basketball or a recreational sport (volleyball, softball, flag football)
- Try a self-defense class
The goal is to keep your body guessing and improve athleticism and body function by giving it a variety of stimulus. You will also feel better and have a body that is less prone to injuries, healthier, and better looking in the mirror!
