How To Avoid Exercise Burnout

  1. 1. A new workout routine starts out as exciting, but before you know it, you’re making up endless excuses for why you can’t make it to the gym. Burnout happens for a variety of reasons and can show itself through decreased performance and motivation. However, it is possible to combat burnout using the following suggestions.
  2. 2. Remember that a key component of success is moderation. It’s easy to do workouts that are too frequent or too intense when you are excited to see results, but in general, you should start at a comfortable level and build up. The increase in frequency and intensity should be gradual in accordance with your changing fitness level.
  3. 3. Change your routine by: • Using different equipment • Getting a new partner • Trying new classes • Working out outside or in a specialized gym • Updating your music mix Even just changing the order of your routine can be beneficial. The change will stimulate your mind and challenge your muscles in different ways.
  4. 4. Balance high intensity workouts with low intensity and stress- reducing activities like yoga. Exercising excessively or at high intensities can overwhelm your body and you may grow to dread your workout. You’ll look forward to the variation in intensity and your body and mind will adapt to different exercises.
  5. 5. Enjoy your workouts by making sure to integrate fun activities. Periodically exchange conventional gym sessions for fun, alternative workouts. If you bring friends and make it a social activity, it will seem like less of a workout.
  6. 6. Listen to what your body is telling you. Your workout should adjust accordingly, because there is a difference between pushing yourself through moderate fatigue and pushing yourself toward injury. Your body needs a break and taking time off from exercise is important for recovery.
  7. 7. Set realistic goals that you can keep. Big goals are a great motivator, but it's hard to maintain the momentum. You'll find greater success sticking with your regular exercise routine if you set little goals and see them as necessary steps toward your big goal.
  8. 8. Think about your reasons for starting an exercise routine. It may be a newfound interest in a healthy lifestyle, an upcoming vacation or special event, or any number of other reasons. Remembering your motivation is powerful and provides what's necessary to take the steps toward staying on course. Within that line of thinking, consider keeping a journal to document your progress and milestones reached.
