Plateaus Suck.

Not getting results?

The last thing we want is for any of our athletes to not be getting the results they desire. If you aren’t getting the effects you desire from the gym, there are a few things we want you to look at. Everyone should be making progress and if you aren’t, there is a link somewhere in the chain missing. Let’s dive in deeper and find it.

Outline your Goals
What really are your goals? You need to sit down and specifically define your goals. If your goals are clearly laid out, you can then determine how often you should hit the gym, your caloric and macronutrient demands, and create daily goals to hit while you are in the gym. Do you want to lose body fat? Gain muscle? Lift heavier? Increase endurance? Answer these questions and set specific metrics to shoot towards.
Knowing your goals will also create drive to push yourself to train when you don’t want to, give your all in each workout, ensure you are getting the right nutrients, and putting recovery/mobility as a top priority.

Look at your activity levels.
After defining what you want to get out of your training, look back and see how often you are active. This includes attending classes, personal training sessions, yoga/mobility work, or any other active sessions you participate in. Almost all goals require you to do something on most days of the week. Depending on what your goals are, this will determine what kinds of activity you should be doing daily.

Ensuring good sleep patterns.
The mantra “Hard Work Pays Off” works to an extent. In reality, hard work only pays off when we are sleeping
enough to allow the body and mind to recover and get after it again the next day. I’m not going to tell you how much sleep you need, you’ll need to determine what works best for you and your lifestyle, but 5 hours isn’t enough. Experiment with different durations, going to bed and waking up at different times, and see when you feel at your peak.

Eating and drinking to your goals.
Unfortunately for people like me who would rather just out train their diet, this is the most important factor in results. Is your nutrition aligned with your goals? Calories and macronutrients are a tightrope you’ll need to experiment with.

In a nutshell, if you are trying to lose body fat, you’ll likely need to be at a caloric deficit. If trying to gain muscle, you’ll need to be at a caloric surplus. Regardless, you need to ensure you are getting enough calories to support your training and lifestyle. You’ll need enough protein to support and repair muscle tissue, enough fat to keep the body healthy and burn in long aerobic workouts, and the correct quantity of carbs to support your energy output.

Nutrition can be overwhelming, but it takes experimentation and if you are not constantly analyzing what you are fueling your body with, you likely won’t get the results you desire. It’s an unfortunate reality. For faster results, seek a nutritionist to get a head start on what you should be eating.\

Establishing recovery habits.
Recovery is vital not only to perform at high levels while training, maintain healthy hormone levels in the body, and prevent injuries. Ensure you are establishing great recovery habits that include eating proper nutrients, getting enough sleep, foam rolling, stretching, other forms of mobility, and taking care of your mental health. Creating a balance that’s aligned with your goals will ensure success.

We want everyone to constantly get results. It takes a delicate lifestyle balance and experimentation to see what works for each individual, their needs, and their desires. However, there is always a reason for plateau or lack of progress. It takes an intricate inspection of our lives to find what we are missing. It’s in there somewhere, I promise.
