Total Body Workout: Prevent Overuse Injuries

Small Changes, Big Results

Freshen up your workout and tone up fast

Change is Good

Put one song on repeat and eventually you tune it out, even if it's your fave. Your body does the same thing with your go-to moves: If you work out the same way all the time, your muscles adapt and stop progressing, and you risk overuse injuries.

So we asked Rachel Cosgrove, owner of Results Fitness in Santa Clarita, California, to tweak the not-so-complicated strength moves we all love so that they target different muscle groups. Alternate between the traditional move and the variation every two weeks and watch your fitness level skyrocket.
