May 12, 2008
Introducing 4 ways to make your workout routines fresh and push you pass your threshold and get the weight loss results that you have always dreamed of!

Getting constant results from your workout programs is really a tough thing to handle. This is because our bodies are funny in a certain way and responds in a certain way as well. Did you ever feel that one day your abs routines feels like a killer routine and then next day you don't feel it working that well anymore?

This is what I am talking about. We need to get you out of the rut and make you exercise routine fresh again! When you constantly overload and surprise your body with exciting new workout routines, your body will respond and produce great results! You have to give the body a reason to change and improve.

Workout Routine Spicer 1

Do most of your exercises on unstable ground. That is right. This is one of the rare times that we want instability. You can do your exercises on one leg, on a fitball or instead of placing your feet on the ground; you lift them up in the air to make your body unstable. This is simple step increases the difficulty of the exercise because it automatically incorporates the core muscles. Don't believe me? Try it, I can guarantee that you will sweat excessively!

Workout Routine Spicer 2

Include high intensity weight training or advance training techniques like supersets. Just like the name, supersets will give you a superburn! Instead of just doing the same old boring one set, rest and then one set, do a set of exercise and do another set of exercise on the opposing muscle group immediately with no rest in between! Sounds crazy? Well, it will give you crazy results!

For example, let us the chest and back muscle group. Both of these muscle groups have are opposing muscle groups. First, do a set of bench press of 12 heavy reps. Then, rack the weight and immediately rush over to the lat pull down machine and do 12 reps on controlled pull downs to the front. Even if you are out of breath, don't give up! Finish off the set! Do three rounds and by the end of the third round, you will feel super pumped!

Workout Routine Spicer 3

Execute your arm movements' one arm at a time. Again, I want to take you away from the conventional method of weight training. Usually, we use two hands when we lift weights. That is just normal right? How about try using one arm at a time or alternate arm for a change? You don't do this without any purpose. Using one arm at a time can help incorporate the core muscles! Now you get t spice up your exercise routine, build that muscle and get a solid core all at the same time!

Workout Routine Spicer 4

Do circuit training instead of just the old fashion do weights first and do cardio later technique. Circuit training is a technique where by you would combine cardio and weight training together to form a solid one-hour workout. Typically, a circuit has 5-to6 intervals and one interval is made up of 2 exercises of 2 sets each and the one 3 minute high intensity cardio session.

You have to spice up your exercise program if you want to optimize your exercise results. Our body is something very special. It adapts easily to things hence we can only get fabulous results if we keep the body guessing. Hope you have a pleasant workout!
