There are far too many unanswered questions to pin point why you may becoming bored in your workout routine. This can be highly personal, IMO. Can you provide more relevant information to assist us to help you?

For example:

"Why" are you lifting and "what" have your goals been the last year? What routine (s) have you been following? What have your progress been like?

Have you asked "yourself" why you are getting bored?

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place.

One step at a time you are moving forward and this prevents you from staying in the same place and being stagnant.

The best way to predict your future is to create it:

The decisions you made yesterday determined where you are today.

The decisions you make right now, will determine where you are tomorrow.

Examine why you are getting bored, and ignite passion by finding what you "truly" want out of fitness.
