Is it better to focus on one discipline or to diversify my training approaches?

Is it better to focus on one discipline or to diversify my training approaches?

It mainly has to do with the time you have available. If you have time, diversifying is good, it’s more fun. But it means you need to train more than once a week. Training in various disciplines has the risk of making you lose your focus. Try to find a rhythm which suits you.

I would say that shifting sports is excellent… It mainly depends on your motivation. If I had time, I would practice 3 or 4 different sports myself. If you opt for 2 trainings a week, my advice is to combine for instance aerobics and fitness, or tae bo and power training.

Changing rhythm, schedule or program ads fun as well and keeps your training alive.
