Inject some variety into your cardio workout

Filed under:

Running miles on a treadmill or walking that brisk pace around the block may do wonders for your cardio system over time, but the routine itself may become stagnant after a while. Result: you back down and exercise less as things get more boring with that jog or run.

For many of us, MP3 players take some of the boredom bite away, bit other feel bored after a while on the same cardio workout routine. Like many things, variety can be a lifesaver here.

But there's more to it than that -- not only can you become bored, but your body becomes bored once it adapts to the workout you've strived to continue. Experts suggest to shake up your routine often and keep your body adapting as much as possible. It's good for your physical -- and mental -- health.
