Variety is the Spice of Strength

When it comes to strength training, it’s harder to build muscle if you don’t add variety. Strength-training resistance exercises use a stimulus, such as a weight, to give your muscles something to work against. Over time, your muscles adapt to that stimulus. To continue to strengthen your muscles, you need to introduce stimuli that are progressively more challenging. For example, you need to use progressively heavier weights or resistance bands.

Adding variety to your strength training workouts is also important. Try to incorporate different types of exercises and resistance into your routine. For example, use resistance machines at the gym, free or handheld weights, or resistance bands. You can also do pushups, pullups, situps, and other activities that require you to lift your own body weight.

The NMB AFC will be closed Easter Sunday

The Entire Facility will be CLOSED, Sunday, April 1st .

The Facility will be OPEN Normal Operating Hours every other day.

SPRING-InTo-SHAPE-4 Tips for Finding Fitness Motivation

1. Set Goals for Yourself

The simple act of goal setting, determining what work needs to be done and thinking about where you would like to be in your fitness plan, can be very motivating. One great way to do this is, instead of setting one large goal that will be hard to attain, set smaller goals you can achieve along the way.

2. Make it Part of Your Daily Life

If you make exercise a part of your daily routine, it will be much easier to stomach the workout. Incorporate easy workouts like light sunrise yoga, a quick morning jog or some squats when you get out of bed into your workday; this will make it easier to complete the task.

3. Reward Yourself

Rewarding yourself after exercise, not with food, but with experiences and little things that make you happy, is a great way to trick your mind into enjoying the workout. Over time, this habit becomes second nature and your mind begins to feel rewarded simply by performing the behavior.

4. Make It Fun

It is important to expose your body to a wide range of activities and experiences to create well-rounded muscles, and avoid injury and over-use.
