Among fitness enthusiasts there circulates this idea of “muscle confusion”. In short, the belief is that changing your routine frequently leads to better results. This seems logical at first, but is there any scientific evidence that suggests it is true? Actually, there is not. Research shows that there is no difference between changing things up all the time versus sticking to the same resistance training routine. The benefit of sticking to the same routine is that people who are less enthusiastic about resistance training can actually get very good at it and enjoy optimal results as long as they stick to the same set of exercises performed with the same principles. So, if resistance training is not your passion stick to the well-designed fit20 routine and challenge yourself to become an expert by performing the routine with proper posture and breathing and reaching momentary failure at every machine.
