You need to continually challenger your muscles if you want to continue to see progress. If you are still doing the same weight training routine that you were doing 6 weeks ago, your muscles have already adapted to the program. There are many ways to change up a program. If you use machines, try free weights or resistance bands. Try a different number of repetitions, sets, weight, rest time, or the overall number of exercises you do. Change one or two exercises -- squat instead of leg press, preacher curls instead of hammer curls -- change the order in which you do the exercises. Identify how you want to try and change your workout every few weeks to keep your muscles confused and getting stronger.
