126 FRIDAY, MAY 30- MONDAY, JUNE 2, 2008 SPORTS & OUTDOORS cape Gazette = How do you keep workouts interesting? ASK THE TRANE (( Chris Antonio Dear Chris: The biggest obstacle I have to overcome when working out is boredom. I like going to the gym but get tired of doing the same stuff. Do you have any sugges- tions on how I can change my workouts to keep them interest- ing? -Joe Joe: We all have days when we don't feel like going to the gym. Work and family obligations don't make getting there any easier. I believe the gym is a place to not only to build our bodies but also to relax our minds. It's no coincidence that doctors are now prescribing ex- ercise to treat depression. Working out Can be fun if you fred different ways to make it in- teresting. However, doing any workout routine for too long can become boring and cause us to lose motivation. We tend to be creatures of habit. Let's face it: We like things that are familiar to us. However, our body's way of dealing with the stress of working out is to quickly adapt to any routine we're doing. That's why I try to change my workouts every four to five weeks. Adding changes here and there helps to keep my clients physically and mentally fresh. Nothing says you have to stick with the same routines day in and day out. There are many ways tomake things interesting. Here are a few ideas to get you started: Try adding super sets. Super sets are doing two exercise with two opposite muscle groups, back to back, without any rest. An example would be doing bicep curls and tricep pushdowns. Try doing giant sets. Giant sets are doing two or more exer- cises at the same time f6r one body part without any rest. An example would be doing stand- ing barbell curls and seated dumbbell curls. Throw in some drop sets. Drop sets are doing a certain amount of repetitions of a par- ticular exercise and then quickly dropping the weight and repeat- ing the process for several sets. The idea is to have little to no rest between each set. A good example would be doing cable rows with 100 pounds for eight reps, 90 pounds for eight reps andS0 pounds for eight reps. Explore the gym.

You just might fmd some new favorites to add to your program. Recruit a new training part- ner. Find someone to work out with who will help motivate you. Be sure to pick someone with a good work ethic who will show up on time and work hard. However, there comes a time when each and every one of us needs a break. I don't care how hard you work; if you don't al- low your body and mind time to rest, you will never reach your potential. I try to schedule one- to two-week breaks every six to eight months. This gives my clients time to relax and take care of other obligations without worrying about gettin_g to the gym. Remember. Staying in shape is'a lifestyle, not a job. Frequently changing your rou- tine will help to keep your body, as well as your mind, from get- ring burned out. Chris Antonio is a personal trainer and former worM-class weightlifter.

I was small-talking with owner Bud Adams then had few words with Eddie Georg. When I ran to find Mike he was sur- prised. "Fredman, you've met so many people over the last five days - even Lennox Lewis - and you seemed so unimpressed. So why are you so excited?" "Tmvis Tritt is jamming with the band in the ballroom and no one is listing," I said. "Here's a quarter - call some- one who cares" I just received notice that Travis Tritt will perform in South Bend, Ind., Friday, July 18, at the Morris Performing Arts Center as part of the 2008 Col- lege Football Enshrinement Fes- tival.
