I switch up my workout routine EVERY time I work out. I swim 3 days a week, but each session is a different amount of laps and different ways of swimming (legs/arms only, breast stroke, back stroke, etc.) I also go to the gym 3 days a week. I do different types of cardio each time (20 minutes at the beginning, weights, 10 minutes at the end), and also Monday and Friday are my "Leg" days and Wednesday is my "Arms" day.
I haven't gotten stuck on a plateau yet, and it makes the workouts fun!!!!

If you get bored or your body gets used to the workouts you do, mix things up a bit. Keep your body guessing. There is great equipment out there, swiss ball, hand weights, and resistance bands. Switch off once in awhile. Keep on going and you will see results, I did and I still am! 306
Sometimes when I ht plateau its because I'm not eating enough or eating the same things and exercising the same. My body adjusts quickly....so I have to change it up. DIfferent calories (sometimes a higher calorie day followed by a lower calorie day) or different exercises. Gotta keep my body guessing!!!!
