How often should you change your cardio???

Exercise is not easy, so when I get comfortable with a machine, that means I mentally prepared myself to finish a 30 min or 45 min session. It is very hard for me to at will say today I will do the treadmill for 45 min because mentally I havent prepared myself for it.

Quite a few plans out there suggest doing one different cardio workout per week. Depending on the plan, that different workout should either be an interval session or a "marathon" session (like an hour instead of your usual 30-40 minutes).

Now that summer is finally here, I'm looking forward to really mixing it up more. Biking, running, swimming, rollerblading, and skipping. The first four I'll do an hour of, skipping maybe 15 minutes- but I'll do it in addition to other workouts, or sometimes I'll do a half hour on the bike, and a half hour of running later.

A guy I used to work out with, who was becoming a personal trainer, told me that a person should change their exercise routine every six weeks. It keeps your body from "getting too used to the routine," and helps keep boredom from setting in. Thank goodness spring is here! (well almost here in Baltimore since it might snow this weekend) Take exercise outside on nice days - bike, walk, or run in the fresh air!
