It's all about mixing it up and avoiding muscle memory!
When you do the SAME moves over and over again, your muscles get used to it and don't have to work as hard.
I recently started trying 2 new toning classes. Sculpt and Body Flow.
I'm SO glad I decided to try them.
I felt sore in muscles that I didn't even know I had! Yes, I am one of those people who ENJOYS feeling sore because that means I got a good workout and surprised my muscles with something different!
Here is one of my favorite moves from Body Flow:
The Crow Pose

Taking these new classes inspired me to finally try moving up to the 20lb weights for my arm exercises. I started out doing ONE of my sets of 15 reps with the 20lb weights. Then, after a few weeks like that, I did ALL of them with the 20lb weights. I'm proud of my accomplishment. It may seem like a small change, but it makes me feel good!
What are your thoughts?
Do you like to mix it up and shock your muscles?
