Increase the Intensity
Doing the same routine month after month isn't just boring, it can actually cause your progress to stall. Proper manipulation of training variables is essential for maximizing muscular strength and hypertrophy. Try adding in intensity-boosters like negatives, dropsets, and supersets to increase overall training volume and boost your anabolic hormone response.

Switch Up the Order
After a couple months of training, you may realize that certain muscles groups are weaker than others. Rotate the order of your exercises so you can focus on specific muscle groups that need a little more attention. Consider doing different types of exercises for the same muscle group, as well.
For instance, while trying different chest exercises, you may find that using dumbbells helps you challenge your chest better and more consistently. Moreover, targeting specific muscle groups three times a week instead of twice can help you increase your workload and take your workouts to the next level.
