Revamping your Weight Training Workout

Ever get bored of your weightlifting routine? After awhile it does become stale and boring and it gets much harder to stay focused with your strength training routine when you don't feel as motivated.

To fix that problem try these tips to revamp your workout to make it more interesting.

1. Try Plyometric Training

Jumping squats, powerful push ups and agility based strength training will really work muscles in a different way than just lifting weights. Plyometric training develops power. It's a great technique for sports training and is highly recommended for athletes. With summer coming, plyometric training will really add a new dimension to your basketball, soccer or football game and give you an extra edge!

2. Try Bodyweight Exercises

Bodyweight training is great if you are on a budget, but also great if you have a limited home gym because it uses very little, if any equipment. Lunges, squats, planks, push ups, pull ups, chin ups, step ups and dips are all examples of effective body weight training exercises. See my list of Frugal Exercises.

3. Try New Equipment

If you can afford it try new exercise equipment either at home or at the gym. You don't need expensive equipment either. A simple resistance band can an extra challenge to your regular routine.

Even doing the same old exercises with a resistance band will change the routine and work muscles in a slightly different way. Adding a simple piece of equipment like push up handles or a medicine ball can makes things exciting enough to motivate another couple of months of training.

4. Try a Strength Oriented Sport

Take up a sport that requires strength. eg. Archery with a bow that requires a lot of torque to pull it and hold it steady. Other similar sports like shot put, mountain climbing / rock climbing can also test your strength limits.
