There are many small changes you can make to your workout and fitness regime that will yield huge results. The following is a list of such changes:
- Run Uphill
Simple, but effective. Running uphill requires more effort than on flat, consequently working your body harder and improving fitness. The more you run uphill, the quicker you will improve fitness.
- Exercise before Breakfast
Have a glass of water and off you go. Exercising before breakfast really stokes the fire and burns more fat as a result.
- Squeeze when you Bench Press
Whenever performing a Bench Press, squeeze your arms and chest so it feels like you are bringing them together. This move really builds a rock solid chest.
- Alternate arm position on Situps
The smallest change in arm position will exercise different muscles in your core. Try situps with the traditional hands behind the head position; with your arms crossed on your chest; with your arms extended out above your head and with your arms extended out to your sides.
- Bring 1 arm closer on Pullups
Try doing Pullups with 1 arm in the normal position and 1 arm closer to your body. This will engage more muscles than merely performing Pullups in the traditional manor.
- Crawl when doing Pressups
Instead of remaining stationary when doing Pressups, perform them in such a way that you are crawling when pressing your body up. Remember to keep your legs straight and your hips tight.
