5 Different Ways to Spice Up Your Workout
Hello darlings! Sometimes working out the same way can be extremely boring and can cause your body not to change for the better. If you do the same workouts again and again soon you’ll hit plateau. That basically means that your body is so used to the workout you are doing that it refuses to lose any more weight or will not tone your body any more. To fix this you need to spunk up your fitness plans with other types of workouts. I’ve thought of 5 easy classes you can take in order to spunk up your workout.

I recently found pilates thanks to my roommate, Courtney. Pilates are a great way to stabilize and strengthen your core. I used to think my ab workout was hard… compared to a thirty-minute session at pilates, it’s nothing. This one really helps you strengthen your muscles to the point where you are shaking. The instructor will teach you creative ways to make you use your on body weight against you. As a result, you will become more flexible, stronger, and have better posture.

Boxing is great for getting your heart rate up and helping you have quicker feet. This is also a great outlet for stress. If you have a lot of stress in your life I highly recommend going to a boxing studio. It’ll help you destress and get your heart rate up at the same time! Plus, your arms will look killer after doing a million and a half jabs.
Burns 86 calories in 30 minutes or 179 calories in an hour.
Yoga can help your mental and physical health. This is definitely a more relaxing workout but should not be taken lightly! The amount of different poses the instructor will teach you to do is hard and will push your body to figure out how to stay stabilized by using parts of your body that you didn’t know were there. If you want to burn a little bit more calories try out hot yoga. It’s a yoga room kept at a higher temperature so that you sweat more.
Burns 357 calories in 30 minutes or 714 calories in an hour.
The water in the pool provides resistance to help tone your muscles no other exercise can. Swimming is incredibly good for muscular endurance and strength training. Livestrong also found a study done by Nancy L. Case that “swimming may prolong your life. Swimmers have lower mortality rates than runners, walkers and those with sedentary lifestyles.” What a great excuse to get out there and swim!

Tabata is a High-Intensity Intervalt Training (HIIT), which means that you actually continue to burn calories even after the workout is over. Tabata doesn’t necessary need to be performed at a studio. You can perform it in your living room or a gym. Just download the free app “Tabata” (it’s a black app with a red clock). Tabata is 20 seconds and 10 seconds rest for four minutes. There are many different home tabata workouts you can find on Pinterest.
