If a person is convinced in anicca, asubha, dukkha, anatta - then what is the purpose of any new insight?

One of the thoughts that I had was: Learn the dhamma truths as reason for acting in kusala way and building a kusala "muscle", like you would train muscle of flesh in the gym. This is #2 option that I've put.
"dust to dust...."
