If you’ve been following the same workout routine for a while, chances are you’ve started to notice a plateau. That’s because your body needs change. When you do the same workout over a long period of time, your body begins to build resistance to its effects. It starts to get used to the routine, resulting in a decrease of results and the feeling of not making any progress.
But have no fear! There’s a simple fix. Just switch to a new routine. It really is that simple. If you’re used to working out 4 days a week, start working out 5 or vice versa. Change what exercises you do. If you always do normal barbell bench press, replace it with dumbell presses or a chest press machine. Lastly, if you go in the same order every workout, ie flat bench, then decline bench, then incline bench…switch it up! Start doing flyes in between each bench, and switch up the order in which you do each bench.
