Variety Is the Diet Spice of Life
Challenging and fun classes that incorporate cardio include spinning, bellydancing and even strip aerobics! Don't chain yourself to the treadmill for the same old workout every day - challenge yourself! Mixing up your strength training regimen may be more challenging, but you can work in variety by switching up days when you work the upper and lower body. One trend in weightlifting includes using kettlebells, which originated in Russia, where bodybuilders used them. They're bowling ball-shaped weights with handles that challenge the user not only to use strength, but also balance in order to lift and swing the weights. A little creativity goes a long way when it comes to your workouts.
