Build New Muscle
Same routine same muscles. Different routine different muscles. Ever wake up in morning and wonder why your shoulders and calves were so sore only to think back to the previous day and realize you spent the day painting and climbing up and down a ladder? You used muscles you hadn’t used in a while. At Switch Fitness waking up a little “Fitness Sore” is a good thing. We offer a variety of classes that will challenge you to switch it up and work on different muscle groups.
Prevent Overuse Injuries
We could dive in deep on this one but it’s pretty simple to understand and there are examples of it everywhere. Overuse impacts everyone from office & construction workers to athletes both young and old and everyone in between. One way to prevent overuse injuries is switching up your fitness routine. By mixing up your activities, you activate new muscles, joints and ligaments and give those overused ones a chance to rest and recover. Those newly activated muscles will be the ones talking to you the next morning when you get out of bed. Smile and enjoy it knowing you used some new muscles and gave some others a rest.
Beat Workout Boredom
If you find yourself literally counting down the seconds left in your elliptical workout or you lose track of your reps because your mind is wandering, it’s time to switch up your routine. Break through that boredom by trying a new routine. Switching up routines requires concentration and concentration is will keep you focused and energized.
It’s Good for the Mind
Exercise is good for keeping your mind sharp and preventing memory loss. The key to getting the most “brain benefit” from your exercise is doing things that keep you engaged and require concentration. Autopilot exercise isn’t good for your mind and could be leading to repetitive motion injuries down the road.
