Not only is doing the same work-out routine every week get boring, but it’s not challenging yourself to your full potential. Sure, you will be burning calories, but this may not be enough.

Are you not seeing the results you seek? Have you been doing the same exact work-out for the last few months? Your body needs something new to be introduced in your work-out, so it doesn’t plateau.

That’s why you should spice things up at the gym with one of these activities!

Rowing

Rowing doesn’t only work your arms, it’s actually mostly legs. It is also gentle on your joints, if you want to give your knees a rest from high impact cardio. However, rowing can get boring. That’s why it’s important to set a goal, like 500 meters then mix in some weight training.

Dead runs

A dead run is when you use the treadmill without it being powered. This will work your glutes due to the resistance. It actually works better at toning them then when the machine is on. You will have to hold onto the machine when moving your legs backwards. This won’t be easy to do for a long time, but it’s great for interval training.

Climb those stairs

If you have already introduced the stair master to your work-out, good for you. But if not, and you want to tone your thighs and glutes, this is the machine for you. If you are a runner, do this after your run for just 10 minutes. You will definitely feel it after a few minutes and your heart rate will raise quickly. You can even pass the time by watching Netflix while you do it. But keep in mind, that it can be tough on your knees and will only work your legs.
