  11. 11. 3 ways to challenge yourself Frequency: If you work out once or twice a week, you could increase to exercising three or four times per week. Intensity: If you run on a treadmill, you could increase the speed during your next workout. If you are using weights, you can begin to use a heavier weight. Duration: This means to work out for a longer amount of time. If you work out for twenty minutes, you could increase to twenty-five or thirty minutes.

Slow and steady Make sure to increase your workouts gradually. Do not get frustrated if you think that your workout routines are not increasing as quickly as you had expected. Even if you can only run an extra 20 to 30 seconds, it is much better than trying to increase too rapidly and injure yourself.
  13. 13. Recovery your muscles Do not train the same muscles two days in a row because your muscles need time to recover after a workout. For example, if you work on your biceps on Monday, work on your thighs and legs on Tuesday to give your biceps a chance to recover.
