Mixing Up Your Exercise Routines at Home 

STRETCH, STRETCH, STRETCH!

Physical treatment relies on stretching for numerous reasons.As you may have heard, stretching “cold” muscles is not recommended. Before stretching, we must warm up to avoid injury and tissue damage.

MIX UP THE WAY YOU DO YOUR WORKOUTS

Mixing up the same workouts can work. Before jogging, try swimming laps in the pool and try a new stroke.Even adjusting lifting reps can help. A U.S. News wellness report recommends changing your regimen every 6–12 weeks for best effects.

GIVE INTERVAL TRAINING A TRY

Periods of high and low activity are alternated in interval training. Sprinting for 30 seconds, running for 2 minutes, and alternating throughout your workout are examples.Any workout can include high- and low-intensity phases.

SWITCH YOUR FORM OF EXERCISE

Jogging? Try pool laps instead. Try spin if you like high-impact aerobics. A buddy may help you stay motivated.Finding a friend to run with, play tennis with, or attend the same aerobics class will help you keep to a new regimen.

TAKE PREVENTATIVE MEASURES

Injury-related training delays are the worst for athletes. Prevention is key: your physical therapist can help you repair problems before they become problems.

INCORPORATE EMOM AND AMRAP EXERCISES

Every Minute on the Minute is EMOM. If you want to execute a 10-minute EMOM program, you can use even numbers for squats and odd numbers for pushups. Therefore, you alternate between the identical activities for a minute each until the clock stops.
