Changing Things Up

Believe it or not, our bodies get efficient.
The more efficient our bodies get, the less physical benefit we derive.  It works like this: when your body is used to completing an activity, it doesn't work have to work as hard.  But when you vary your activities and surprise your body, you gain more physical benefit.  In other words . . . you burn more calories.

This post from the Go The Distance blog highlights the importance of changing our routines in our physical activities.  We may excel at one activity, but working on others is a great complement to our overall fitness.

In my next post, we will take a look at some off-season activities that will offer some options in this direction.
