    Great article.

    I get bored easily so I have a number of workout videos and usually do one for two days and then switch. I think the longest I have ever done the same one is four days. Also, when I go to the gym, I do the treadmill and another machine, sometimes the stepper, sometimes the elliptical, just for a difference each day. I'ts good to know that variaty is good for the body too, and not just only becasue I get bored!

    And the chart is a great help too! - 5/13/2010 4:38:33 AM
  • Great idea! In the past, I would get bored with my routine. Since finding SP I have been changing my routine fairly often--mostly when I see a different exercise on SP. There are a LOT of exercises on SP and the article will tell you what part(s) of your body will benefit from that particular exercise. Not only do the articles describe how to do the exercise properly, but most also include a video demonstration. The SP Exercises and SP Recipes are my favorite parts of SP. - 5/12/2010 8:28:44 PM

    I love this!! I will be using this workout plan and I have already added some of the exercises I do to it so I can still do what works, but have some variety. - 4/1/2010 11:08:56 AM
  • This looks like a great article. I have trouble trying to figure out which exercise to do next, so this will definitely help me. - 4/1/2010 10:26:41 AM
  • I love this idea! I am always looking to change up my workouts but don't really know enough about which exercises work what muscles, so I'm afraid of doing unbalanced workouts. This gives me a great template to work from. - 11/9/2009 3:57:03 PM
  • This is a great idea. I never thought of it. I've saved it as a favorite. - 11/8/2009 10:53:01 PM

    This is a great article. When I strength train, I always switch up my exercises to avoid my muscles getting use to the same exercises. However, the mix 'n match workout chart is a wonderful idea. This takes some of the guess work out of figuring out a new routine. - 11/8/2009 6:45:12 PM
  • This is a good idea and is something I just started thinking about during this morning's workout. This will help. Also, Rowan has a great idea, I never thought about the library and checking out discount stores. I'll be making plans to go to Ollies later this week and see what they have! Great ideas people thanks so much for sharing! - 11/8/2009 4:28:36 PM
  • Great idea Nicole! Will try this soon to mix things up! Thanks! - 10/25/2009 3:24:26 PM
  • This was a good article I am at a plateau and I am trying new workouts but get bored very easily. So let's hope this works. - 9/9/2009 3:50:00 PM

    personally I work a 4 day split routine for around 8 weeks then I swap to a 5 day split routine for another 8 weeks...once that is finished I go back to a 4 day routine...
    generally I swap up the exercises I do on each cycle...I add in new excercises etc
    this way it never gets dull and about the time my muscles are starting to get use
    to my routine I swap it up - 9/9/2009 6:16:59 AM
