Give your Body a Shock for Results

Every once in a while, it is good to switch up your training routine to shock your muscles. You should not repeat the same workouts over and over again, because your body will start adapting to them and your results will slow down. “Muscle confusion” is the goal here….. This means keeping the muscles guessing so that they are exposed to new stimulus.

With that being said, changing it up is fun and it keeps things from getting boring! So, here is an example of a week’s worth of workouts. Get them a try!

Note: I didn’t include a particular weight used for the exercises, because it will be different for everyone. Make sure that you pick a weight that is challenging for your own body!
