In a training routine, “comfort” often equates to “plateau!“
Before trying any of the tactics below, make sure that your training routine is progression-based. This just means that you are increasing volume and/or amount of weight lifted each week.
Typically, this increase should amount to around 5-10%. Continuing to challenge the muscles is what leads to muscle growth and strength gains.
If you have been incorporating progressive overload and you’re not seeing results, check out some…
Tips To Help Break Fitness Plateaus
Reverse the order of your exercises
Change workout split (push/pull, upper/lower, total body, one muscle group, etc)
Consider a deload, if needed
Take a class
Train with a friend
Go outside and do conditioning/circuits with body weight
Adjust your set and rep range
Reduce recovery time between sets
Change how you train, i.e. switch from straight sets to supersets or compound sets, and vice versa
Set new objective goals
Change the order of your training (cardio first, then weights..if you do cardio)
Sometimes, it helps to just be patient.
Gaining muscle or recomping takes time. You may be making progress that’s not readily visible to you!
You may also not be seeing results if you switch up your training programs too often.
So, just be sure to keep a training log, so you can easily track your sets, reps, and overall volume. A little bit of tracking can go a long way towards making lasting progress!
