The time will come when you have gotten all of the benefits of a particular exercise routine. It may be time to move to a more challenging or advanced level in order to continue to see returns.
If you are following a DVD exercise program at home you might be ready to move to the intermediate level. If you are taking a class at your gym, you might talk to the instructor and see if there are any advanced level classes that they offer that will challenge you more.
In order to continue to see returns when you exercise you must continue to increase the amount of effort or intensity, the frequency at which you work out, and the length of time of your workout. It can be helpful to consult with a personal trainer and tell them what you have been doing and ask them to help you to design a more challenging routine.
