Though the winter is still holding strong, you know that spring is just around the corner. Most people tend to put off their workout routine for the winter, as the weather is too cold to be able to break a sweat. And it makes sense to not put much effort into something that will not deliver the results you are expecting.
This is what makes it even more important that you start spring on the right note and are ready to start working out by the time the weather changes. But if you have been sedentary for the winter season, you will have to amp up your workout for spring. Here’s how you can go about it:
The first thing you should do is move your workout outdoors. Take maximum advantage of the rise in temperature to work out under the sun. This will not only ensure a pleasant workout experience, but you will also get some much needed vitamin D from the sun. Also, it has been proven that working out in the open is more beneficial than working out indoors, even if you are not investing as much time as you would if you were exercising indoors.
Add a degree of intensity to your workouts. There are a few simple ways you can go about this, such as putting a resistance band around your ankles while you push up. Also, incorporate relevant equipment into the routine, especially medicine balls and kettlebells. This will up your game when working out and the results will also be more pronounced when you look in the mirror.
A great way to amp up your workout for the spring is to change the exercises somewhat. Keep in mind that if you keep performing the same exercise over and over, your muscles will get used to it and they won’t build or be toned the way you want them to. This is why it is a good idea to find exercises which test your strength and endurance, such as the broad jump. Also, push yourself to the limit as much as you can by increasing the number of reps per exercise.
These are some effective ways in which you can amp up your workout for the spring season. As you know, spring will be here soon so now is the time to get started with working on your body so it shows the results when the season actually comes around.
