Five Ways to Push Past Your Plateau
Have you hit a plateau in your fitness journey? It can happen. Here are five ways to push past it:
- Keep a food journal
- Log your workouts
- Limit stress
- Remember your “why”
- Use visualization techniques
There’s no shortage of advice on how to lose weight, not to mention how to break through a weight-loss plateau.
If you’ve ever gone camping in the wilderness where bears are known to roam about, no doubt you’ve heard plenty of advice on how to behave should you encounter one. Park rangers will instruct you to play dead. Locals will insist that you should shout and make lots of noise. Your camping buddy will joke that all they have to do is outrun you and they’ll be fine.
If the bear is your weight-loss plateau, instead of getting three different pieces of advice from three different people, the best weapon you can bring against it is knowledge, so that when the time comes, your moment of panic or boredom or stagnant weight loss is finite.
Plateaus are frustrating, but they can also be motivating, and most importantly, they can be overcome. They force us to remember why we are trying to accomplish our goal in the first place. With what you know about plateaus now, make your plan today and be prepared when your plateau hits so you can tackle it head on.
If you want more data to help you create a personalized fitness plan to push past plateaus, schedule an InBody 570 assessment at the studio.
