Workouts Must Be A Challenge – Why…How

If you are just beginning a workout as I once was, DO NOT challenge yourself and also know your limits. Challenge is just another way to say PROGRESSION.

I am a fond follower of BOD (beachbodyondemand) which means I choose my trainer, their program and follow the calendar which is what I need.  Yes I need this because in beginning my fitness journey I would workout and use the same  routine over and over again.  Did I see results, yes but gradual and trust me the turtle had traveled several miles before I saw any result.  I would increase weights, speed are gradually and not consistently.

I NEVER challenged myself to do a workout that looked like “I can’t do that”, I could not because I never challenged myself.  Whether you are a BOD fan or workout at a gym challenge yourself.  With my workouts the trainers give positive encouragement to challenge yourself.  I can say there were programs I begin and threw in the towel because one or two days I knew I was destined for failure.  NOT so I thought I was destined for failure, I challenged myself, some routines with the modifier challenging myself with each workout and YES I completed every program I thought was a challenge.

Challenging your body will prevent complacency with the muscles and you will pat your own back and 🖐 yourself too. Uh huh I do this and I feel good about it.

I challenge you to challenge yourself with one activity in your workout this week and don’t forget the ✋🏽 .
