Cross-training. It is not to

regimen, perhaps you’ll come out of the closet (in your
workout attire, of course) and prepare to mix some cross-training
into your schedule. And unlike cross-dressing, it won’t cause
you any public ridicule or frequent double takes.
Cross-training is the method in which you blend a series of

recognize the difference.
Also, cross-training may be a better option for avoiding injuries.
While a constant strain is put on certain joints if you’re
running every day, other joints will be used in specific exercises
like weight training or say, rock climbing.
