Why the need for new cardio workouts?

There are a few reasons why it's critical that you do new cardio workouts every couple of months. For one, your body is apt to get used to the same routine. Once your system adapts to the workout, your odds of making further progress greatly diminish. Another reason is the mental freshness - if you are totally used to your routine and know what to expect, you tend to "phone it in" and not work as hard. You also tend to stop paying attention to form. For these reasons, getting new cardio workouts is a great idea!
