If you are a young athlete and are getting bored of your workouts, you’ll have to be creative to keep them engaging and fun. First, switch up your routine. Try to change the number of reps and sets per exercise you do, and change the amount of weights you’re lifting. Next, do different types of exercises and work out different muscles daily. This will not only let your muscles heal properly, but it’ll make for a fresher routine. Finally, for cardio purposes do something fun like play tag or play dodgeball.
“For the older athletes, we use higher volume workouts earlier in the offseason. That means more sets and reps of the bigger lifts. As we move through the program, we’ll increase the intensity.”
