I have a question about the usages of "on" and "off" with "routine":
- He was on his routine.
- He was off his routine.
The above usages could be found on the web, but not in dictionaries. So, are the sentences wrong?

I don't find any problem in either of them.
That's because 'on' and 'off' are used that way.
He's on his routine - sounds okay to me!
May be, he then needed a break from his routine...so...
He's off his routine!
They are both correct. In #2, you could also say "He was off of his routine."
