I've been following a beginner's exercise routine for the past few weeks and I'm starting to feel like it's becoming too easy for me. I'm unsure if I'm ready to progress to more challenging exercises or if I should continue with my current routine for a little longer. I don't want to risk injury by doing exercises that are too difficult for me, but I also want to continue challenging myself and seeing progress.
For some background information, I'm in my mid-twenties and I have a general goal of improving my overall fitness and health. I'm not training for any specific sport or event. I've been consistently doing my current routine for about 3-4 times a week for the past 5 weeks. I feel comfortable with the exercises I'm doing, but I'm starting to worry that they're not challenging enough.
What signs should I look out for to know if I'm ready to progress to more challenging exercises? Should I consult a trainer or do more research on my own before making any changes to my routine? I appreciate any advice or insights you can offer. Thank you!
