We are creatures of habit.  Some times this works in our favor.  It helps us to establish good routines, things that will keep us on the right track.  It helps us to get things done in a timely manner.  But sometimes it stifles us.  It keeps us from progressing.  The EXACT thing happens in the gym.  Lets say you dont quite have a particular movement down yet and you need to scale, or lets say you arent even close and you have need to scale/modify.  This is what is supposed to happen.  Scales/modifications are needed so that you are able to get the same general response from the movement, to be able to build strength in certain segments of the movement, or to improve stability in either the full range or particular parts of the movement.  So you scale so that you are able to hit these things.  The problem is when you end up doing the EXACT same scale for the movement EVERY time you do it, you never get to all these different parts and you dont improve.  For example, the movement is HSPUs.  There are an infinite number of things you can do to improve parts of this but if all you ever do is "knees on the box" psuedo hspu/push ups, then you will not advance past this point.  You need to get use to pushing directly overhead as you would in a true hspu.  You need to develop the core strength to to keep your body tight as you are up on your hands.  You need to develop the shoulder strength to drive from the bottom position as well as have the shoulder mobility to make sure your arms are moving through the proper pathways to keep your shoulder safe and strong (just to name a few).  the only way you will be able to hit all of these different angles is to do many different modifications and scales.  Ask your trainer what scales you should do.  Test some out.  See how they work.  Remember improvement its a process.  But you have got to stay out of the rut.  Keep advancing!:)
