Strength Training Workouts

19 Workouts to Help You Become Your Strongest Self

Don't waste time! Make your strength-training workouts more effective by keeping your body guessing by trying new things. Changing up your routine by working your muscles in different ways will make the body stronger and more sculpted and will also help prevent a fitness or weight-loss plateau.

If you've been doing the same strength-training workout forever, here are some new ideas. Choose an entirely different routine to do each time you work out.

Full Body

Abs and Core

I just read an article a week or two ago that said you shouldn't switch up your routine too often. I used to do a different workout every strength training session, now I do the same workout for three weeks, with different variations, and then switch to something different. I feel like I'm actually getting somewhere now. I feel like I'm getting stronger where as before I never seemed to be able to increase the number of reps I could do. Oddly enough, I'm less bored now, I guess because I can be more creative with the ordering of the exercises, size of my weights, number of reps, etc. I guess there's such a thing as too much variety, for me anyway.
