Use these tips to increase the intensity of your workouts:
- Add Some Resistance. Lunges, squats, hip bridges and even sit-ups can all be made more intense with some added resistance. A set of dumbbells, kettle bells, sand bags, medicine balls or resistance bands would do the trick. Pay attention to when the resistance starts to feel too easy, and add weights accordingly.
- Increase Your Speed. If you think you could go faster, then do it. The more that you push yourself during your sprinting intervals, the quicker and more stunning your results will be. Remember, you can do anything for just a few seconds.
- Lengthen Your Intervals. If your workout is starting to feel less challenging then add a few seconds to your intense intervals. Start by adding 5 seconds and go up from there.
- Do New Exercises. For the best results, never do the same workout twice. There are many of small changes that can be made to keep a routine fresh and new. Swap out burpees for high knees, mountain climbers for jump squats and so on.
