How to Break through a Weight Training Plateau

We all hit weight training plateau, but not all of us know how to deal with them effectively and efficiently.

It’s quite obvious, but people tend to like to stay in their comfort zones and continue doing the things they have been doing.

I would like to share a quote here, “Doing the same thing and expecting different results is insanity“.

If you aren’t seeing changes to your physique or not making muscular gains and doing heavier weights in the gym, there are 3 possibilities.

1. You are doing it wrong.
2. Your body has grown accustomed to your weight training program.
3. You just need to recover fully.

One of the most important things that I teach my peers/students is to use a training journal to keep track of their progress and to constantly set new goals.

Tracking and measuring your progress  is vital, not just for bodybuilding, but for all things in life.


How to Break through a Weight Training Plateau

Let’s revisit the muscle growth formula:

Ectomorph Bodybuilding

Proper nutrition refers to consuming enough quality proteins, and you can refer to the section of ectomorph nutrition for more information on the topic.

And without enough rest, your muscles will never grow.

If you feel that the lack of rest has been hampering the effectiveness of your ectomorph workout, try taking one whole week off.

It works wonders. Just don’t take too many one whole week off! Once every 6 to 8 weeks will do.

And of course adjust your weight lifting program to one that allows you sufficient time and space for adequate rest.

If you have been eating well and resting well but just can’t break through a weight training plateau, then you will need to learn some advanced bodybuilding techniques to bring your workouts to the next level.
