Vary your training program

A varied training program is soten known as muscle confusion, or periodization. Variety often brings greater results. One easy way to add variety is to start your week with shorter, high-intensity workouts; this conditions metabolism and strength. Finish your week with longer low-intensity workouts; this conditions the bones, joints, and endurance. Taper from one type of training to the other as your week progresses to cover all forms of conditioning.
