There is the principal of confusion when it comes to working out which is definitly one of Cross fits strengths. The need to change up your sets, reps, exercises, etc. to keep your body in shock. What if you have a good 15 minute warm-up routine. Can this same routine be done indefinitly or does it need to be updated periodically as well.
I guess I do this anyway because after a few months I'll get bored doing the same thing day in and day out. Currently I'm switching between 2 different routines at the moment for warmups on lifting days, on non lifting days I'll just do whatever feels needs work that day.
I think a good way to change things up would be to vary the reps and/or do different variations of the same exercise i.e. inverted hamstrings backwards this week, inplace next week and then forward the week after...etc
