Bored of your current workout routine? Don’t stress, it happens to us all! The good news is that changing up your fitness routine to include some different workout styles doesn’t just get rid of the boredom, it also challenges your muscles to grow and adapt to new forms of exercise.

So, when you want to keep exercising but you’re just not feeling interested, put your mind and body to the task of figuring out a new set of physical demands, with some Pyramid Workouts, AMRAPs, Tri-Sets and EMOMS.

Before we start, let me explain each of these workout types:

✅ AMRAP: an acronym for ‘as many rounds as possible’. AMRAP workouts involve doing as many rounds and repetitions of an exercise as possible during a set amount of time, without resting (or with very limited resting).

✅ EMOM: stands for ‘every minute on the minute’. It is a form of interval training, where the challenge is to complete a predetermined number of repetitions of a particular exercise within 60 seconds. Then, you use whatever time is left in that minute to rest before moving on to the next exercise.

✅ Tri-Set: Tri-sets are doing 3 exercises back to back with no break. During these sets you can either pair exercises that are non competing, in other words opposing muscle groups, or you can target the same muscle.

✅ Pyramid workouts: Pyramid training can be done a few different ways, including: Ascending Pyramids – Increase the weight and decrease the reps for each set. Descending Pyramids – Decrease the weight and increase the reps with each set. Triangle Pyramid- With this technique you do both ascending and descending pyramids. 

All of these workout styles are perfect to mix things up when you’re getting bored of your regular workouts, and can help you get past a plateau.
