Fitness: How to Mix it Up Your Workout

Fitness isn’t hard, but it can easily get uninspiring when workouts are the same day-in-day-out. To keep things fresh, mixing it up a little – in life and in fitness – is the key!

Sure, we all have our favourite exercise habits but after a while, the same exercise can be repetitive on the mind and body to a point where the body does not get the desired results. This type of exercise becomes more of a maintenance program. Don’t get me wrong MOVEMENT is the key but MIXING IT UP with your movement can be even better!

In my many years in the fitness business, I see and speak to clients and members who are not getting results. They fall into the trap of doing the same thing when they come into the studio or club. This may feel safe for them as they are not getting out of their comfort zone or it may fit into the allotted time they come to exercise. I understand that CHANGE can be hard but hey sometimes we gotta make the change.

 

Fitness – How do I mix it up?

Here is my easy “How To” when it comes to making some overdue changes to your fitness routine:

1. See a personal trainer every so often

If you are a member of a gym then many health clubs offer small group training or personal training. These are particularly good if you have an injury or timeline to hit your goals as the PT will monitor you individually and give you new routines, exercises and thoughts.

 

2. Take your fitness workout outdoors

Add an outdoor run or walk to your weekly sessions or start training for an event, fun run or even a half marathon. You might even want to take it up a notch and make it a hike in the hinterland with a group of friends! Mt Warning is a ripper! Choose social but active fitness events.

 

3. Add Yoga or Pilates to your regimen

These both tick the box for adding a bit YIN to your life. If you are fast paced like me and need to stop and practice a little deep breathing then add this to the repertoire! Increasing your recovery will increase your results!

 

4. Go to a group fitness class in your gym or studio

Groups are great! Especially ones that you normally would not attend like Zumba, Met con or Reformer HIIT. This helps you experience a new training format and gives you greater appreciation to other training modalities. Plus training in a group is highly motivating.

 

My list could go on but my challenge to you is to just make one achievable change and make it a high priority. Try a few different things until one resonates with you but it has to put you out of your comfort zone just a bit!

Back Pain: Are your discs affecting your Pilates practice?

Back pain is something that 70-90% of the Australians will likely experience, and herniated discs can be a common reason for this. Pilates is a great core strength builder and can often be recommended by health professionals to those that are at risk of back problems. But discs can also affect the way you move in Pilates.

Back Pain and Herniated Discs

As if having a herniated disc isn’t bad enough, current studies show that at least half of herniated discs spontaneously de-herniate! In fact 66% of people in this study experienced disc reabsorption without surgery. This is a huge number and shows that in general, we get a little precious about our spinal discs. As a Pilates instructor, I meet people who have back pain and mores specifically some sort of disc injury (past or present) nearly every day.

Our intervertebral discs are our spines shock absorbing system, cushioning between vertibra. The outer layer of the disc is annulus fibrosis which is a firm but flexible coating over the nucleus pulposis which is a softer jelly like substance. When the disc is herniated, the nucleus pulposis pushes through the annulus fibrosis causing irritation to nerves and potentially pain.

Herniated Discs affecting your Pilates

In my experience, most clients who have experienced disc injury tend to overprotect their spines, causing rigidity and tight muscles. Working with clients to move well, safely is so achievable! Pilates is a wonderful method of movement to create balance, strength and flexibility throughout the body as a whole, setting good postural habits for life. If you are experiencing any discomfort due to disc injury, contact a qualified clinical Pilates instructor near you or contact us for a clinical Pilates appointment – info@pilatesandco.com.au.
