Our bodies are amazing at constantly changing and adopting to any physical or mental challenges. Unfortunately that means that doesn’t matter how hard was your training routine in the beginning within a matter of weeks; your body is not challenged in the same way. As a result the benefits start to diminish and the quick results you were getting in the beginning are not there anymore. This is why you must change your workout plan. If you find your training is starting to bore you, it’s not longer challenging and your training is not giving you the same results, these are some of the signs that it is time to mix it up.
It doesn’t matter what your main training goals, muscle gain, cardio vascular fitness etc, your body needs to be challenged in every workout to get the results you are striving to achieve. Changes to the workout routine can be as simple as changing location of training or order of the exercises performed. Just by making these easy changes you are already providing a different training challenge. To push yourself further try changing exercises you perfume to more advance, as such if you were jogging try interval sprinting, or including drop sets/super sets in your training routine can push your body just a bit further. Increasing reps or weight is another way to mix things up.
Changes to your exercise routine can be made as often as daily if that is something that you find works for you. Current research indicates that majority of bodies physiological systems adapt to an exercise plan within approximately 6-8 weeks. As a result failure to modify your exercise routine, you reach a plateau because your body has adapted to the repetitive training stimulus.
