How often do you change your routine?

And why?

I am not talking about variation from day to day or session to session.

You may fall into more than one category but please try to choose the most suitable option.

Cheers

    For me it depends upon the results i get from the routine. I may extend or cut short depending on results.

    4-6 weeks.

    I know that you should really stay on routines for longer to get maximum benefits, but for me a more regular change keeps up motivation and interest.

    too ofter (voted 4-6 weeks).

    So far reasons have been not exactly boredom, but because there are so many interesting routines, exercises etc out there.

    I'm on westside at the moment, have been for 2.5 months - probably the longest i've been on a routine. I'm changing soon again though...

    something short, brutal, abbreviated, compound only More Dino style...

    Want to make more time for my grip training to be honest - at the moment my hands and wrists are in constant pain!

    Westside is great training style but not for relative beginners like me IMO. Perhaps i should write about my westside experiences in another thread - i think i promised a few people to do that at some point...

    In the past I used to change routine all the time, but for the last 6 months or so have pretty much stuck to the same one. The only difference has been the introduction of a thick bar.
