Play around with reps and weight.

Try and play around with the number of repetitions you perform with each exercise. Use heavier weights as and when your body starts responding lesser to exercise, and as your rigorous exercise regimen allows. Perform six to eight minimal reps with heavy weights and rest in between for longer times than usual. However, if you've been taking longer rest intervals all this while, then shortening these to 20-30 second rest intervals will also be effective. When performing with slightly lighter weights, go for 10 to 15 reps and less amount of rest in between the reps.  The idea is that you must wake your body up from a routine that it may find less strenuous after months of workouts.
