Five Ideas to Change Up Your Usual Workout Routine

By amino VITAL
Five Ideas to Change Up Your Usual Workout Routine

Sometimes it can be a great idea to keep your muscles guessing. That’s why we wanted to go over a few ways that you can change up what you normally do during a workout, while still getting the same effect for your body.

If You Like … Distance Running

Try … Water Running

Running in a pool or in a body of water can be a great option for those who prefer to get their exercise in through a long run. Working out in the water has a much lower impact on your body, which helps save you mileage in the long run! Water running is exactly what it sounds like: you wear an aqua belt in the pool and go for a run. It is a great option for those whose joints may have difficulty running, or those who want to take a break from the higher-impact intensity of running on pavement or the ground. You will want to stay true to your land running form in the water for the most effective outcome!

If You Like … Sprints

Try … Jumping Rope

Sprinting is, like long-distance running, a great option for getting your heart rate up and working on your cardio. However, if you get tired of that, a great option to substitute your sprints for is jumping rope. Used by everyone, from schoolchildren to boxers, jumping rope is an efficient and low-impact way for your body to get a great and intense workout in. It is also super easy and incredibly cost-effective! All you need is a jump rope and some aminoVITAL Action to keep you hydrated and locked in, and you’re ready to go!


If You Like … Weight Training

Try … Rock Climbing

Rock climbing is a way of training that is quickly sweeping the globe! With how fun it is to do, how it can be turned into a social event, and with plenty of resistance built into the sport inherently, it’s an awesome alternative to your usual weight lifting routine for a change of pace. Many rock climbing gyms are opening up and offer courses for anyone, from experienced climbers to newly-beginning hobbyists. Supplement your weight program with a fun day or two a week of rock climbing, and see how you feel!

If You Like … Cycling

Try … Hiking

There are plenty of great reasons to cycle in addition to the ‘staying fit’ aspect! It’s a great way to see places you may not get to be just walking or running and that are inaccessible by car, and it’s much lower impact than running. A great alternative from cycling, if you want to give your glutes a break, is hiking! Hiking is a wonderful way to see the world from a new perspective, literally depending on where the trail you hike takes you. It’s also lower impact than running, but can still give you some of the same benefits, such as increased bone density, which is key for keeping your bones healthy.

If You Like … Dumbbell Workouts

Try … Using Household Objects

This is a great idea if you want to stay home instead of heading to the gym. There are plenty of suitable household items that can be substituted in a pinch instead of dumbbells. Some of our favorite alternatives include: milk jugs filled with sand, a backpack loaded up with books, a shopping bag filled with canned goods, or laundry detergent bottles. With a bit of creativity, you can craft an excellent workout for yourself using just the things you have in your home.

Working out can sometimes feel monotonous, but it’s not supposed to be that way. That’s why we wanted to lay out these five ways you could add a new dimension to your workout. So have your favorite aminoVITAL supplement at the ready and get ready for a whole new workout that we’re sure you’ll love!
