Is it important to change exercises?

Or is it okay to do the same thing every day or every other day?

As you build muscle mass it takes less effort to do the same exercises and you will stop seeing the improvement in the muscles as time goes on. This is fine if you are simply maintaining musscle mass, but if you want to continue to improve the muscles then you will have to change it up a little.

You should change workout when it starts getting too easy. If you're not breaking a sweat or raising your heart rate, you're not getting much benefit from exercising.

It is not important to change exercises unless you are overusing the muscles. For example, running an hour a day is fine. If you run three hours in a day, then you need to do a different exercise the next day to avoid damage to your legs caused by excessively running. If concerned, consult a physical trainer.

It is important to change your exercise routine. You want to optimally work out all over, your entire body so that you work out all your muscles.

Eventually your body habituates to anything you do. So, what used to burn a lot of calories when you first started doing it burns a lot less because your body gets more efficient. For this reason it is a good idea to vary the exercise or intensity of it.
