A routine is just that; the same thing every day, every week. When working the same muscle groups in the same order and in the same way your body will learn this pattern and adapt to it; expecting it. By changing the modality of training, you can shock your muscles and body systems which can once again achieving a higher rate of results, like you once did when you began your current routine.
