Health Tip: Vary Your Exercise Routine

(HealthDay News) -- Varying your exercise routine can be just what you need to get out of your workout rut.

The American Council on Exercise suggests how to vary your strength-training program:

  • Change the number of reps you do in each set, or the number of sets per exercise.
  • Vary the amount of resistance.
  • Vary rest sessions between workouts, reps or sets.
  • Vary the type or order of exercises.
  • Adjust how fast you exercise.
