I’ve been training seriously for some time. However, over the last few weeks I’ve lost some enthusiasm. What do you recommend to reinvigorate training?

Change up your routine so it doesn’t get boring. Mix things up a little…add swimming one or two days a week, or go play some disc golf once a week.

Adding other activities to the training schedule trains other parts of your body and mind, and depending on the activity could have added benifits of training balance or speed or coordination or flexibility and so on.

Just pick something you like to do.

Another suggestion is to join in an activity with other positively motivated and like minded individuals. So if you enjoy running, or you add that to your routine, also try finding a running group or trail running group to train with once a week.William Stynetski inverted rope climb

Or add in a team sport like soccer, or flag football or softball in which you are joining in with others for some practice and games.

The key is not to get too bored with the same routine and not to keep doing the same repetitive motions over and over again, but to enngage in a couple of different activities in addition to your workouts, even if on a recreational level. Add a little bit of cross training or changing gears, if you will, to keep your body and mind fresh.
