If you do the same workout for a while , will it eventually stop working the same as it did when you first started doing it?

Sometimes if the person who created the workout edits the workout there will be playback issues if this is what you're asking. A quick fix is play it once, then exit out of the video and then try playing it again. This usually foxes that issue

A) why do you post the same topic twice?

B)  no not really. Ppl will talk about "muscle confusion" but it's mostly bro-science, aka b.s.

You do become better.  Your body becomes more efficient, so technically you will burn fewer calories doing the same things, but the difference is so small it's not even worth considering.

Your only danger in repeating a workout is if you become bored with it and start convincing yourself to skip it.

Of course with any exercise, as you get fitter, you have to raise the level of the workout if you want to see more progress, otherwise you'll just be maintaining whatever you've accomplished already without further changes, which is fine if you're satisfied & that's what you want. Like with cardio, you typically increase the time or intensity and with weights, you increase the weight or reps.

Aha I thought that might be it. I never look at anything besides "active topics" where everything shows up with no forum topic specified.
