Back at it changing things up.

Finally starting to feel healthy again. (Knock on wood). Still have a little cough but I feel well enough to resume training. This month I'm going heavier with less reps and taking more rest time between sets. This is actually works out great because my heart rate won't elevate too much for too long. I still have a lingering cough so the longer recovery time helps. I haven't trained this way in a while. The change will be a good shock to my body. I am also not following the typical body part split routine.

It's good to change your training routines. I'm not just talking about changing the weight or the reps but the entire way you train. If you have been primarily spilt training, different body part each day, change up to include more muscle groups. You could do upper body one day and lower the next. You can do a few leg exercises with a few chest exercises. Do body weight excercises if you haven't had them in your routine. Plyometric excercises are great to add for explosive power. They also recruit more muscle fibers that will help for muscle growth. Get primal! Try to do some combinations that your body hasn't done. Try to shock your system.

Changing things up is not only good for your muscles but also for your mind. If you keep doing the same thing chances are you're not getting results. That's insane! You are also probably bored out of your mind. Don't be afraid to change things up. If you don't know how you can ask someone. You can ask me.

Just keep training hard. Keep moving forward.
