Body Building Training Programs- Keeping or Changing
Some people say it is good to keep the same training program for 2 or 3 months and then change it. Some say it is good to do a different and new training every day. Which of them do you think is the best way to get the better response from your body? I have heard somewhere that your body unconsciously starts "cheating" in how you do an exercise if you continue doing the same exercises without variation.
What I would say is to follow the same training program for at least 6 months to get benefit from that.
Can't really use any training method to it's fullest without giving your nervous system time to properly develop the neuromuscular pathways to use the exercise and rep ranges effectively, not to mention, the only people I've ever seen make serious gains without having a serious training plan, were on steroids. Those will cover a lot of mistakes with nutrition and training
Your body also needs this to adapt to the exercise enough to where you can increase resistance, thereby increasing workload, because the only way to get stronger is to move heavier weights, but you can almost always (for example) squat more after 6 weeks of squatting than you can on the first day.
So especially if your goal is strength, then you should stick to programs, but even for bodybuilding, progressive overload is a key, and you can't overload a muscle without developing a groove for the lift, to lift more than you normally could, because then after a while, that's the weight you normally can.
