Blast Through Your Plateau And Continue To See Results

January 19, 2016 2 min read

One of the greatest motivators for sticking to a healthy diet and workout routine is the changes you see in your body. Not only do you notice changes in the way you look, you notice them in the way you feel. But, sometimes, despite our best efforts, the things we are doing stop having an impact. Unfortunately, hitting a plateau can be just part of the process of getting fit. Don't let it get you down! Don't let it drive you mad!

What causes a plateau?

When you first start out on your new lifestyle, results come easily. This is because the things you are doing, (like eating right and exercising), your body isn't used to doing so it responds right away. But, over time, your body gets used to these activities and adapts to them. So, if you are doing the same workout over and over and not seeing results, this is why. If this sounds familiar, here are some ways to get past it!

Remember to not just measure weight.

It is easy to think you've reached a plateau because your weight isn't changing. But you have to think bigger picture than that. Weight is notoriously unreliable when it comes to tracking your progress so try using body measurements and before and after photos. It will give you a more complete picture of what is going on with your body. You are not your weight. [bctt tweet="Blast Through Your Plateau And Continue To See Results"] chair dips

Change your workout routine.

When you do the same thing over and over again, your muscles get pretty efficient at the movements. When your muscles aren't challenged, they will stop growing and stop showing you results. SweatFlix℠ is here to free you from your same old, same old! With over 90 hours of on demand workouts, covering everyone from beginner to advanced, SweatFlix℠ will revolutionize the way you train! And with new content being added all the time, you'll always find a workout to challenges those muscles!

Up your weights.

Don't be afraid to challenge yourself in the weight room! If you want to sculpt and tone your body and want to burn fat more efficiently, you need to strength train. There are no two ways about it. The more muscle you have, the more fat you will burn! Get a set of weights here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvayTjck1HA

Change your diet.

If you have been eating the exact same way for a long period of time, your metabolism may have slowed down. While it is important to change up your exercise routine, your diet is just as important. Try doing something called 'carb cycling.' This means you will have low-carb days, medium-carb days and high-carb days. This helps to reset your hormones and, like a change in exercise, keeps your body guessing.
