Make the most of music
Even the best training routines can feel boring at times. This is especially the case if you're listening to the same music playlist you've had since the '90s. Something as simple as downloading some new tunes can often be enough to get you amped to head back into training at full force. We know this—it's why we regularly publish workout music playlists and include "favorite gym tracks" with all of our transformations!
Studies suggest that your level of motivation may be affected by the type of music you have on your playlist. It doesn't matter if you're listing to O Town or Rage Against the Machine—go with whatever pumps you up. Who cares what anyone else thinks, anyways?
Once you've got it loaded up and playing, remember to warm up before you tune out. Whether you foam roll, limber up, or get ready with a dynamic stretching and strength circuit, it'll pay off once you start lifting!
