I typically do the same sort of exercise routine every week. At least each month or every 3 – 4 weeks I find my workouts need something new. Aside from overcoming general plateaus, I just get bored with what I’m doing and need a workout to change up the pace of things here and there.
Do you ever find yourself in this type of rut? It can become super discouraging if you don’t have a way to overcome it. And can even set you back!

Overcoming workout boredom
To help with workout boredom, I look for new ideas, think about what exercises I haven’t done in a while, what type of results I want or even think about changing up the actual environment I’m doing my workout. Even little changes such as trying one new exercise or doing one that I haven’t done in a long time seems to help.
Each month I end up coming up with some sort of new workout for cardio, strength or active rest. When I do this, I feel excited to do the new workout and over 2 to 3 weeks’ love feeling and seeing the results from sometimes what was just a simple change.
This keeps me engaged with exercising and keeps me motivated to come back for more.
