Health Tip: Vary Your Workout Routine

Changes help keep it fresh

(HealthDay News) -- You can get into a rut when it comes to your exercise routine, so it's wise to add variety to your regimen.

The American Council on Exercise suggests these possibilities:

  • Adjust the number of repetitions in a set or the number of sets for an exercise. You can also vary rest periods between sets or exercise days.
  • Change the amount of resistance or weight you use.
  • Change up the types of exercise you do, or the order in which you do them.
  • Adjust how quickly or slowly you perform exercises.
  • When it comes to strength training, gradually increase from low resistance and low number of repetitions to higher resistance and more repetitions.
