The Cure for the Common Rep

You've been going to the gym for what seems like forever. The cute girl at the fitness shake stand knows you by your first name; the lug nut at the main desk doesn't even bother checking your ID anymore; and the jack*ss who spends eight hours a day, every day, in the gym knows by now that you don't want his unsolicited advice on how to properly perform each movement. Yet, in all that time you've never done anything different from the regular old run of the mill repetition. You begin with the weight at the bottom of the range of motion, you lift it as far as you can and then lower back it to the starting position--over and over and over again. Isn't it time for a change?
