Should I change my weight routine every 4 weeks?

  • I'm starting my 5th week on Monday (whoo-hoo!). Should I change my weight routine? I've heard that muscles get used to the same movements and it's good to change so they are challenged. True?

  • Congratulations on completing the first 1/3 of your challenge.  I hope you are feeling the benefits of a clean lifestyle.  Absolutely chang up your weights routine.  Your muscles need to be challenged, and you want to keep them guessing.  Good luck on the rest of your challenge.

  • Greetings Patch, i agree with BDMom on this one. Muscle confusion as it is often called, is a great way to get over plateus in results during a program. Be sure to stick with the program though if you can, in format and types of exercises. (especially the meal requirements too).

  • Will do!Thank you both. I've chosen my new upper & lower exercises for the next 4 weeks and will stick with the program according to muscle groups and types. I haven't SEEN a great deal of change in my body, in fact very little, BUT my clothes are fitting differently and I feel great. I've read alot online by others who say visual results come later so I am confident it'll happen. Thanks again. Have a great week.
