We all face them at some point in our fitness journey, but there are ways past them. I’ll admit, I have even faced them in both my workouts and my martial art training.
When it comes to weight loss and diet, the focus needs to be on calories in versus calories out. If you have been hitting the workout hard, then you may possibly have to increase your calories and possibly your carb intake just to kick the weight loss back up. Remember, as your metabolism grows so, too, will your fuel needs.
Now for the training plateau. First thing I always suggest is to change your routine. As I have mentioned in the past, your body will adapt to the work within 4-6 weeks. So change will be important. This holds true for weight loss as well as muscle building. Now this doesn’t mean you have to just up the weight or reps. You should try a complete phase change.
To go into these subjects further, I would strongly suggest talking to a trainer. They can help you blast past the road blocks and keep you challenged. Remember, if it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.
