If you are looking to get a boost to your workout, whether that’s for a new challenge, you have found yourself unmotivated as of late, or you just simply want to try something new, we have got you covered. We wanted to make this resource guide of ways to give yourself a little extra boost and keep your body firing on all cylinders.
Trying Something New
As we’ve previously emphasized, changing up your workout routine can be a great way to enhance your workout. If you are finding yourself without a challenge in your workout, then stepping out of your comfort zone can be an exciting way to get your body back in the swing of things. One of our favorite examples is swapping out a day of weight training for a day of rock climbing. Climbing gyms are an easy way to have a fun workout while switching things up to break up endless days in the gym. Simply getting out there and doing something new is a great way to enhance your workout!
Enhancing Your Body’s Nutrition
When you work out, you need to replenish your system and those lost nutrients with new ones. That’s why aminoVITAL’s Rapid Recovery is the perfect option for your post-workout supplementation. Featuring electrolytes and essential amino acids for the recovery process to start earlier and go quicker, it’s a great option for those who are looking for nutrients and not just sugar and carbs following their workout. With BCAAs to heal broken down muscle tissue and help in relieving your DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness), once you turn to Rapid Recovery for your post-workout needs, you won’t ever need another supplement.
Stretching Out Before and After
Getting your body ready for your workout is nearly as important as your workout itself. That’s why we advocate for stretching out before and after every single workout. Whether you like to foam roll, or you just prefer a stretching routine for 15-20 minutes, it is a great opportunity to get your body in peak performing shape ahead of any workout you are about to partake in, while also helping to relieve any muscle soreness after. To perform at your best, you need to be at your best, and stretching is a great way to ensure that that’s the case.
Finding the Perfect Pair of Sneakers
It really is in the shoes. When you’re working out, you’re putting a pretty heavy load on your feet. That’s why it’s important to make sure that you are wearing a pair of shoes that is comfortable and fit right. When you get set to buy that pair of workout shoes, it is a good idea to talk with someone, either an employee of your preferred shoe store or even your doctor, to see what your exact size is and what type of shoe is right for you and your level of activity. We spend a lot of time on our feet even when we aren’t working out. Getting a great pair of shoes is a good way to maximize comfort and enhance your workout.
Come in with a Plan
One of the easiest ways to really enhance your workout is simply by knowing what you are going to do when you get there. When you come in with the right mindset, your mind and body can link up and prepare for the day’s activities and work according to the expectations that you have for the day. Knowing what you want from a day’s workout can also allow you to have a better idea of what feels right and when there are signs that something may be off in your workout.
