For the last three weeks I’ve spent one day a week working out with a trainer.

Like, a balls to the walls, gnarly-ass trainer.

And?

I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve never been so sore in my life.

Butttt it’s the good kinda sore. An addicting sore. The type of sore that makes you crave/want/need more even though you can’t bend over to tie your hot pink Nike’s.

I love it.

I mean, clearly I had plateaued. And honestly? The experience reminded me how important it is to switch up my routine every couple months.

The body gets bored with the same, old workout- ESP day after day after day. Changing it up shocks the body, speeds the metabolism, & defines new muscles.

So.

I challenge you to try it. Switch up your usual workout routine & see if it makes a difference. I bet you’ll be so, so sore too.

But the good kinda sore ; ).

    Ugh, you just reminded me how desperately I need to mix up my workout routine. I haven’t been sore in a long time. I spin constantly because I love the spin classes at the fitness studio I work at, but I haven’t strength trained in forever! I miss feeling sore! I just get so addicted to the sweaty, heart-pounding, super hot feeling of a spin class.

    I completely agree. I’ve been doing the same routine for awhile now and even after what I thought was a good workout, didn’t feel like I did anything. Do you recommend working certain body parts each day? I try to stick to 3-4 days a week.

    100% agree! Doing the same workouts get you no where – sure the same workouts may give you results for the first 2 – 4 weeks but after that results hinder and that’s when people quit – meanwhile it has nothing to do with the workouts – its just the fact they aren’t changing things up.

    Totally agree! After running for the past 9 mths or so I’m taking some time off for the summer and giving Bikram Yoga a try. I started this week and 2 sessions in, yep, definitely sore in all new places! I’m not totally sold on it yet but it’s a refreshing change of pace!

    I’ve been moving my workouts outside and out of the gym. Love it! That magazine kitchen looks like the house from YoungHouseLove 🙂
