After almost two years of reading blogs and looking at other people doing a certain thing each week (Treat Yourself Tuesday, What I ate Wednesday etc.) I decided I was going to do my own. So I am excited to bring you my first installment of…
So as you can tell Training Thursday is workout based. I came up with the idea after talking to one of my girlfriends and she was telling me how her trainer has her do a different thing each day so her body doesn’t get use to anything and she gets the most out of the time spent. It sounded like an awesome idea to me, not only for the benefits but for the variety of things you can do to keep you interested in going to the gym.
We all find ourselves in a rut where one more day of going for a run will just put us over the edge. The second working out becomes a chore is when I start to loose interest in doing it and make excuses as to why I can skip the gym.
So for the past two weeks I have been switching it up! Body Pump, Stairs, Pure Barre, Spinning, Elliptical and much more. I’m actually excited for the gym again. I’ve found classes I look forward to each week and for the past week there hasn’t been a day that has gone by that I’m not sore on some part of my body.
My goal of this is to do a link up and let everyone say what they have been doing for exercise, that way there are tons of ideas for me and others to switch up their routine and continually be motivated and excited for the gym.
Each week I plan on bringing something new to the table as well. To start off with this week the new thing I did was different stances to squat. I am sure most of you already know this trick but I didn’t. Depending on how wide or narrow your stance is depends on what muscles in the legs and butt you work.
I never knew this until I could hardly move after a class of squatting in a wide stance. The next few days the outsides of my legs were on fire but I felt amazing.
So next time you are doing your squats think of that, you don’t have to just do hip width apart, you can switch it up and get a more complete tone on your body!
