Is Your Portfolio Diversified?
I'm sure you've heard this before from an advertisement about investing or your financial adviser. This applies to your fitness program too. The key to optimum fitness is diversity.
Cardio, weight training, and timed drills are part of the variety of exercises I recommend to my personal-training clients; kickboxing, self-defense and boot-camp class members; and the athletes I coach including the fighters on the tae kwon do team my company, Professional Training Systems, sponsors.
Focusing on only one activity can lead to too much attention to one specific skill set and/or muscle group. Mixing it up ensures that you’re working to your body’s maximum potential, and reduces the chance of injury because you’re not always stressing the same areas.
Diversifying your workouts has an added benefit: you’re more likely to keep to a fitness plan that’s not always the same. The Same 'ol routine can get boring, and when you’re bored, it’s easy to make excuses not to work out.
Mix it up to stay fit, stay focused, and stay on target for your fitness goals.
