We are creatures of habit. It is comfortable to do the same thing over and over again. Even with our health and fitness, most people will have the same habit of going on a treadmill for 30 minutes, or walking for an hour, or doing the some other familiar exercise over and over again. They could do this for years and have little or no results. This is insane. Insanity is doing something over and over again and expecting different results. It is great to be persistent and consistent. It is not okay to be stubbornly unproductive.For many years, I would walk for an hour and be happy that I got a “workout” in. Walking is a great starter exercise program. You should escalate your walking into jogging, running, or even sprinting. You will find that you can get more results in a shorter amount of time when you increase your intensity. In addition, you will provide much needed care to your joints such as your knees and ankles when you vary the intensity and movement in a shorter duration of time. By constantly doing the same motion to your body for a long period, you can cause excessive wear and tear on your joints. It would be like dripping water on a rock- eventually the dripping water will erode the solid rock.You will need to add spice and variety to your exercises. Most people like to add more time in doing the same exercises. You have to shift your thinking to vary your exercises and intensity- not doing the exercises longer.Sprinting is a great exercise for your health and fitness. You can try sprinting for 20 seconds and resting for 10 seconds for about 8-10 times. This is a great fat burning workout. Also, you can try body weight exercises such as push-ups, lunges, squats, and a multitude of others to give your workout a spice of variety.Check out my site and see other innovative ways and routines to benefit your health and fitness.
