If there's one mode of exercise that you know is particularly effective for you, then by all means stay with it and change other variables to break out of your rut, but if you have no preference, then try a change in exercise. Your body has an incredible ability to adapt to anything you throw at it. That's why constant variation is an effective way to break a plateau. For example, if you've been walking, change the type of exercise to stair climber, elliptical machine or stationary bicycle. This one change alone is often the catalyst to reaching a new low in body fat. Remember though, if you're getting good results with a certain type of exercise, don't change it just for the sake of variation. Don't fix it if it's not broken.
