I Don't Like Lifting Weights, What Can I Do?

by Neighborhood Trainers Finding a trainer is a personal choice

Not everyone likes lifting weights, but it has become more popular as people see the results on both men and women. It can be disheartening trying it out and realizing that lifting isn’t for you, even when the results are so pleasing. If you want to get the results of lifting weights, there’s no need to hit the deadlift area or fool around with free weights. You can get the results you desire without lifting a single pound. If you don’t believe me, let’s delve into some of the things you can do to substitute for weight lifting without sacrificing any of your fitness goals.

Practice Yoga

Yoga is an excellent way to replace lifting weights in your exercise routine. It should even be classified as a strength training exercise due to its incorporation of movements and flow. For an instructor in yoga, Bronx classes are the best way to get the most out of your yoga routine. Since the exercise is both static and dynamic, you’ll be getting a total body workout that strengthens the muscles and burns calories for effective weight loss.

Add Variety

One of the most important things you can do to your exercise routine is switch things up. Doing the same routine each time you exercise can stagnate progress as your muscles adjust and your strength increases. You should try doing different activities each week, such as going to a Pilates Bronx professional for workout sessions or going for a swim every once in a while. Changing up your routine even just a little can lead to increased engagement, fun, and muscle strength.

Be Creative

You don’t have to use a bunch of fancy equipment or go to the gym for a strength workout. Try getting creative and using your body weight to perform exercises that strengthen the muscles. You can try step-ups, jumping, split squats, push-ups, and other exercises that allow your body to go against gravity. You can also use other tools, such as suspension straps and other items that can add some resistance to your workout and produce results similar to lifting weights.

If weightlifting isn’t your thing, there’s no need to think you won’t be able to get a good workout in. You can increase your strength without lifting any weights by participating in other activities such as yoga, swimming, and more. When someone asks, “do you even lift?” you can respond with a quick flex of your muscles and a confident smile.
