Single? Find Your Perfect Match

I’ve been working out for a couple months now but I have noticed that I haven’t lost any weight in the last week or two.

What am I doing wrong? Is there something that I need to do in order for my weight loss to start again?

You’ve hit what we call in the fitness industry as a ‘plateau’. Basically, this means that your body has become accustomed to the current exertion that you have been placing on it. When you hit a plateau, you will find that you stop losing weight, stop making gains in strength or endurance, and you may get bored.

In order to break out of the plateau, you must do something that your body is not expecting. Changing either the type of activities you are performing, increasing the tension or speed of your current activity, and even taking an extra day or two or recovery can help enough to start your progress going again.

To avoid hitting a plateau, change up your routines every 4 to 6 weeks and cross-train as much as possible.
