Weekly health tip #1 - Mix it up!
Today is the first installment in a new feature here at SG, a weekly fitness tip! Every week we'll bring you a quick tip on exercise, eating, or just generally healthy living.
This week's tip is about exercise plateaux. Often after weeks or months of the same exercise routine, your performance, weightloss, or enjoyment will drop off or come up against a wall. To avoid this, mix up your exercise regimen. By working different muscle groups and challenging your body in new ways you'll be able to push yourself to a new level of fitness, and by staving off boredom you'll be better able to meet your exercise goals.
Suggested changes - switch your cardio machine (treadmill, elliptical, bike), and add interval training. Also try adding a new activity (volleyball, yoga, tennis) to really mix things up!
