Periodize your workout.

The idea of periodization of your workout is to avoid using the same workload and go for planned periodization. Here are a few tips by which you can periodize your workout:

  • Change the order of your workout. For instance, if you generally start by training your abs and finishing with leg exercises, then flip the routine the next day.
  • You can also consider changing the number and degree of your repetitions. You can also try and change the number of repetitions for a standard set of 12, 15 or 20.
  • Cross train your muscles using circuit training, core classes, boot camps and other cross-functional exercises. After all the goal of weight training is to gain real life strength and not become a competitive body builder, and these exercises ensure just that. 
  • Target your body’s weakest part and be honest about this when exercising. Hit the areas in the gym, which you mostly dread, with rigour and fierce dedication.
