Sunday mood! ☀️ Ich hoffe ihr habt heute alle den wunderschönen Frühlingstag genossen... Wir waren den ganzen Nachmittag an der Sonne, nachdem ich gemütlich in den Sonntag mit einem Bad 🛁 gestartet bin.
This is part I of II. Todays post will cover how to identify plateauing as well as differentiate it from overtraining. And part II will provide tips to break a plateau.
Occurs when you don’t see results anymore, you are stuck with the same weight and/or can’t increase weight on exercises. Despite going to the gym regularly and allowing for proper rest, nothing seems to be getting stronger, and sometimes gets weaker.
Unless you’re new to weightlifting, you will not be able to add weight in the same rep ranges every week and maintain proper form.
A true plateau is where every lift in a workout is stuck at a certain weight for a certain number of reps for at least 3 weeks.
Is a physiological state caused by excess accumulation of physical, physiological and emotional stress. It occurs when the volume and intensity of the exercise exceeds an individual's recovery capacity.
The telltale sign is lack of improved performance, despite an increase in training intensity or volume.
Other signs: changes in appetite, all of a sudden dreading workouts, excessive pain (esp. in joints) or fatigue, workouts feel like they take more effort, appetite changes, insomnia, mood changes (i.e. depression, irritability), metabolic imbalances.
If you’re terrified of taking rest days, you’re probably putting your body through too much training.
In short, plateauing is when you’re doing something too long while overtraining is when you’re doing too much of it.
Overtraining can cause a plateau, but plateaus also commonly occur without any overtraining.
