Default What does it mean to switch up a work out??

does that mean switch the exercises i do? or switch which days i do certain exercises?

im clueless been working out for like 4 years on and off and i dont know what it means..

I think it just means to switch up which muscles you work every day. If you do the same workouts every time it will just become muscle memory and you won't build nearly as much.

It's means to change your workouts up. You can still workout the same muscle groups together but you change up the workouts you do. The point of this is to keep your muscles from plateauing and to keep em growing. Changing up your workouts keeps your body on it's toes. I have been working out for a little over a year, 5-7 days a week and I just started doing this.

An example would be my back day.

Routine one: Wide grip pull ups, Lat pull downs wide grip, cable rows, and two other machines that you put free weight on, then I do cable rows with one hand at a time and focus on my negatives.

Routine two: Pullups, Closed grip lat pulldowns, deadlift, dumbell bent over rows, I also do bent over rows with a barbell standing (hard to explain). I also try to think of random back workouts I rarely do.

You could also throw super sets into your workouts every now and then. A superset is doing two different workouts without rest. An example would be standing barbell curls to preacher curls.

Another thing I do sometimes is change the amount of reps. I usually do 8 reps and 3 sets. However I sometimes do less weight and 10-12 reps and 3 sets or I do more weight 6 reps and four sets.

Edit: +1 to you can change what to workout together.

Just find a different workout. Whether its different exercises or different amount of reps, just do something different to shock your muscles. You can just google and look at different workouts and find one that is different than yours and do that. And if you have been doing 10 reps then switch to heavier weights for only 6 reps. The main point of switching up a workout is to shock your muscles to make them grow.
