Aside from all of the other amazing things the human body can do, it is, at its core, a learning machine. From the time we’re born, until the day we die, our bodies are always learning. We learn how to read, how to write, how to walk, talk, run, jump, and play. The way we learn these things is through repetition. We do them over and over, and as we do, they become easier and easier. Well the same thing goes with our workouts. If you go to the gym every day and do the exact same exercise, eventually you’ll reach a point where the exercise no longer benefits you.

When you look at any kind of workout program, you will we see a wide variety of exercises. Muscle confusion is the reason behind this. By constantly varying the type and intensity of your workout, you prevent your muscles from becoming accustomed to the workload. In the past, you may have heard this referred to as “avoiding a plateau”. By integrating a wide variety of exercises, and alternating between high and low intensity workouts, you can ensure that you are maintaining maximum effectiveness during your workout.

If you glance through any of the workouts of top bodybuilders, you won’t see the same exercises over and over.

If you’ve ever played sports you’ll remember that practice wasn’t the same thing over and over again, there is always a wide variety of drills and exercises involve.
