Take Your Fitness Regimen to The Next Level

The thing about fitness and working out is, the more often you do it, the better you get, and the better you get at working out, the fewer benefits you will get from doing o if you stay at the same level.


That is why you should always aim to push yourself when you are serious about staying as fit and healthy as possible, and with that in mind, let’s take a look at a few things you can do to take your fitness regimen to the next level:


Do it for longer


Adding more time to your workout is an easy way to take it to the next level. If you usually do a spin class for 30 minutes, then doing it for 45 minutes will be a greater challenge, burn more calories and give your body more to do than it previously had to, which will really help to step up your workout.


Go further


Similarly, going for a longer distance will help to switch things up and give your body more of a challenge than it is used to too. You find out what you are truly made of when you start running long distances instead of spriting, for example.


Add more weight


A third modification you could make is adding more weight to your workouts. If you have been lifting 100kg for months, then your body will be used to it, so adding even a few kgs more will pose a challenge and help to ensure that you are still building muscle if that is a goal of yours, for example.

Teach it


This isn’t for everyone, but there is no denying that if you want to step up your fitness regimen, then getting an online certification that will qualify you to teach it and then going out and doing just that is a great way to do more exercise at a higher level than before. It could also be an exciting new career opportunity for you.


Try a new class


Sometimes, doing something completely different than you are used to is the best way to step up your fitness regimen, If you have always been a runner, for example, you will have developed strong calf muscles. but you may not have developed much flexibility7, so doing yoga could help you with that, or if you have always lifted weights, you might have amazing muscle tone but a poor lung capacity, in which case taking up running could help to improve your fitness levels significantly. Don’t be afraid to switch things up from time to time to give your body a chance to work on different muscles and different skills. Your body will thank you when you get older and you're in great all-round shape.


There comes a time when you are going to want to take your fitness regime to the next level so you can continue to reap the rewards of physical exercise, and when that time comes, any of the above will help you to do just that.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
