Getting Out of Your Comfort Zone!

If you have been doing the same exercises over and over to the point where you can do them with your eyes closed without breaking a sweat, it is time for you to change it up.  Your comfort zone is not where you want to be when you are working out.  You get the least amount of results in this zone because your body expends the least amount of energy and it takes less effort for you to perform an exercise.  The only people who should be exercising in their comfort zone, periodically, are aerobic endurance athletes.  They need to improve the economy or efficiency of the movements used in competition as well as their endurance level.  If your goals is to get stronger, lose weight, or build endurance you have to change it up often.  Your body needs to be challenged by a different level of intensity or a new movement to trigger an adaptive response and to allow change to occur.  A little bit of change in your program can make a big difference in your results and keep you motivated. 
Here is a great way to get out of your comfort zone!
