Even if you don’t have the gym, you still have your body

If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard, “I didn’t work out today because I didn’t make it to the gym,” I wouldn’t have to work another day. To me, there are so many options with your body to get a pounding workout that are often ignored. Most people don’t take advantage of bodyweight workouts because they require more creativity – which is understandable. So why should you care about bodyweight exercises?

Change the Way you Run to Keep It Exciting and Challenging

Running is no doubt a fantastic way to get exercise, stay in shape, and improve your overall well-being – but what happens when it gets monotonous and boring? After running around the area so many times, it might begin to lose its spark and you will find your progress plateauing. Especially if you are someone who is on the fence about going for a run to begin with, this can seriously tarnish your reputation with running. So how can you stay focused and excited to run?

Why cardio is essential to your health

Although there is much debate about when cardio should be done, there is no debate about whether or not cardio is actually good for you. You should do cardio at least twice a week to complement your workout, considering you are in good medical condition to do so. If you are not doing cardio at all, you are making a mistake. That’s not to say you have to do cardio for an hour each time; as long as you get moving and do something that will get your heart rate up, you will reap the long-term benefits.

Great things come to those who keep striving for success

When things get difficult, it is very easy to get pulled into a downhill spiral of negativity. Getting into a downhill spiral is much easier than building an upward spiral simply because staying positive takes mental effort. There will always be negative things trying to drag you down, but you can teach yourself to think positively in any situation.

Success starts with your mindset.

Do this oblique dip exercise instead of sticking to planks

Are you tired of doing a plain old plank and are looking for a new way to work on your abs? While this easy-to-do exercise is similar to a plank or side plank, it also requires a simple yoga move called the downward dog. It’s a nice combination of practicing good form and also getting a quick stretch.
