Have you noticed that some of the hardest exercises to perform are bodyweight exercises? The reason for this is that with bodyweight exercises you cannot adjust the weight you are lifting, instead, you are forced to lift your own bodyweight and so the heavier you are, the harder it will be. As with any exercise, the only way to get better at it is by practicing it over and over again. The question I get frequently is: how do you practice an exercise that you can barely do one
It is a good idea to change your workout plans every so often to get out of the rut of doing the same workouts all the time.
By changing the program it keeps things interesting and allows your body to continue developing.
However, if you follow the same workout for a prolonged period of time it is very likely that one of two things could happen:

At least 50 percent of people starting weight training will quit working out after the first month. By six months the number will have increased to about 75 percent. By the end of the year only about 10 percent of those who first began will still be hitting the gym on a regular basis.
Chances are that if you have made it into that 10% of people you will stick with it for a long time and make it a lifestyle. No excuses! #fitness
