Plateaus come in all shapes and sizes. Weight loss, strength levels, physique, and/or other various forms of measurements can be extremely frustrating when you feel stagnant.

If you aren’t seeing progress, it can be extremely frustrating and diminish will power. Today, I want to share with you a couple of my favorite plateau breakers to use when results slow down. These are simple and practical things you can implement to help move the needle without creating restrictive and stressful situations.
