Been committed to your workout program for quite some time now? Feel like you just aren’t seeing the results that you were hoping for?
There are many signs that would indicate that it may be time for you to consider a brand new workout program and making sure to learn these signs and take action when they present themselves is important to keep you continually seeing progress and coming back for more.
Let’s look at the clear give-away’s that it’s time for a workout change.
Your Progress Is Slow To Non-Existent
First, if you haven’t made clear progress in quite some time, this is sign one that something’s amiss. You should be constantly seeing regular progress if you are hitting the gym on a regular basis, so make sure this is the case.
Otherwise, you’re basically just wasting your time. The body will eventually adapt to any form of exercise that you do, so if you aren’t continually adjusting your workout choice, you will stop seeing results.
You’re Skipping Workouts
Next, another big indicator is skipped workouts. If something else always seems to come up and you don’t even really care if you go to the gym or not any more, you need a change of pace.
Lack of motivation is also a sign that your workout isn’t quite doing it for you anymore. Maybe it’s just low mental challenge of the workout and in other cases, it could just be that you aren’t interested in what you are doing.
With so many different exercise variations you can be doing, there’s no reason to keep doing one that isn’t ‘doing it for you’ any longer.
You Could Do Your Workout In Your Sleep
Another sign that it may be time you revamped your workout is if you are just going through the action. How much focus do you really need to get through a workout? If you feel like you could do it in your sleep, it’s not challenging you enough and pretty soon, you won’t be seeing results from it.
You should be focused and dialed in when you’re in the gym. If you aren’t, this needs to change.
You’re Completing Your Workout In Less Time
Finally, if you are completing your workout in a shorter time frame than you were earlier, this could indicate it just isn’t challenging enough for you. When that’s the case, it’s time to bump up the intensity or do something that will make it harder.
This is also critical for ongoing results. Remember, your workout must change each week as you advance.
So keep these points in mind. Don’t let yourself stick with a workout when it just isn’t delivering. Take action and get yourself on track to continual success.
