During your first few weeks of a new fitness routine, there’s a chance you might struggle to reach the end of a workout or you may need to take regular breaks. That’s ok! The important thing is to keep persisting each day and your fitness will slowly build.
Although we want you to challenge yourself, pushing yourself too hard can lead to burnout or injury, so know your limits and be patient as your strength and endurance increase. You’ll be smashing your workouts in no time!
If you’re struggling during your workouts, here are some ways to reduce the difficulty:
- Modify exercises where needed, such as completing push-ups on your knees instead of your toes.
- Take longer breaks in between sets.
- Reduce the number of reps or decrease your weight load. When it feels easier, you can add more!
