Yeah, I know -- exercise
seems like odd placement in a DIY blog. But, let's get serious: do you sometimes find that doing the same thing over and over again gets, well, kinda boring? Scratch the thought of going to work every day and picture something else. As in, trying to find a way to juice up that regular exercise so that you don't get bored, lose interest and end up a non-exercising couch potato again.
If you're an athlete, routine and extreme may be the top two words in your vocabulary. If you're an average joe like most of us, then change and variety may be something you'd like to inject into anything that remotely resembles exercise. Instead of push-ups, crunches, bench presses and free weights, isn't there more to your exercising
life? Sure there is, if you let that brain get crankin' and set your creative juice ablaze.
Specifically, your body may quickly adapt to routine exercise, which may make it less helpful as time passes. Keeping your body engaged with changes in exercise at regular intervals will keep that adaptation on its toes. Try the below exercise recipes on for size, or head over here for videos
