Switch up your sets.

If you’re used to doing the exact same sets week after week, try mixing up your rep range or adding more resistance. This will keep your muscles confused and help you avoid plateauing.

Try new moves.

Do you jump on the same cardio machine every time you hit the gym? It’s time to change things up! Try new exercises that focus on different muscles to keep your body challenged and your mind motivated.

Mix in mini workouts.

Short, mini workout sets like jumping jacks, jogging in place, phantom jump rope or shadow boxing are a great way to elevate your heart rate, jump-start your workouts and mix up your routine.

Don't forget to warm up.

To get your body ready for exercise, do a dynamic warm-up that includes moves like alternating lunges, leg swings or the supine bridge, and save the stretching until the end of your workout.

Work all your muscles.

It’s tempting to only work out the target areas you want to tone up, but you’ll actually get better results—and better posture—if you train your entire body evenly.

Rest up.

The amount of time you rest is just as important as the time you train. Make sure you give your muscles adequate time to recoup and get them the fuel they need to develop.
