How to Get the Most Out of Cross-Training

  • Do things you find fun.

  • Go for a well-rounded workout. If you usually run, do an upper body workout once or twice a week.

  • Do more than one activity. Jog for 20 minutes, then ride a stationary bike for 20 minutes.

  • Do activities that complement your main interest. To become a better runner, for instance, try cycling or in-line skating.

  • Remember that fitness includes cardiovascular endurance, strength and flexibility.

  • Wear the proper shoes for the sports you choose.

  • Don't fret about adding time to your already tight schedule. Instead, replace your normal workout with different activities once or twice a week.
