Keeping workouts interesting and productive for young athletes involves a mix of variety in exercises and staples. If you do brand new exercises every time you step into the gym, progress will be nonexistent. However, if you do the exact same workout it will soon become stale. One way to keep interest is to vary the set quantity and variety of exercise. For example, a bodyweight squat could progress to a kettlebell squat and then to a barbell squat. The set count changes with the season.
