Thank you for taking the time to check out my weekly Apex Newsletter! This week I will be providing some tips that I integrate each week in order to see constant progress with my body on my fitness journey.
Most commonly people fail at a fitness routine not because they are unwilling to put in the work but primarily because they simply lack the information necessary for their transformation. Plateaus are a very common phenomenon experienced by gym-goers.
Plateaus are very easy to avoid and super easy to bounce back from if you are experiencing one currently. The definition of a plateau is “a state of little or no change following a period of activity or progress.” If you are working hard and currently seeing little progress chances are your central nervous system has actually adapted to your current daily routine. The best way to avoid this and stop this immediately is to simply switch up your workouts. It takes approximately 4-6 weeks for the average persons CNS to adapt to your plan, this means you should never do the same routine for more than three weeks.
Your muscle receptors that are sending the signals to your brain are extremely sensitive and can easily grow accustom to the intensity/ routine of the workouts you are providing to your muscles. With new workouts varying in the intensity and style of training.
This is the main concept behind my Apex Personal Fitness Online Daily Trainer program. The workouts change every single day and you never are participating in the same workout more than one time to prevent your body from ever hitting a plateau allowing you to continuously develop muscle and burn fat!
Next, if you want to break a plateau you’re stuck in; just throw something new at your body that you’ve never done before. For example, a full body workout or even a bodyweight workout. These are simple fundamentals to avoiding plateaus.
I hope these tips are able to help you reach your full potential! And just remember that “The road to success is always under construction.”
