If you are consistently changing up the amount of weight you are lifting and your gains have still stalled out, here are 4 ways you can kick start your body back into high gear. From steroids to intentional over-training, try one of these solutions to get your workouts (and body) in tip-top shape…
Over-train… But Just for 3 Days.
In general, over-training can lead to less stamina, less weight loss and even less muscle mass. Your body needs time to recover when lifting and if you are not giving it time to heal, you are essentially breaking down all your hard work and starting back over from scratch. However, old school HIT weightlifting trainers say that if you have reached a definite stall out, you can over-train for three days in a row on the same body part, working out twice per day each day… then resting for ten days. When you do, you will come back stronger and your body will be ready for going back to your regularly scheduled workouts.
Pay Attention to What You Eat.
As your muscle mass grows and your workouts get more intense, you will become hungrier than normal. Your body needs fuel to function, but eating small meals every 3 hours instead of several large meals, can help you to feel full. Often times you may not be stalled out, but, instead, gaining more weight than you realize thanks to a case of workout munchies.
Try Steroids… It Is Safer Than You Think.
A prohormone steroid can help you to gain lean muscle mass faster, lose fat and even increase stamina. Steroids have gotten a bad rep, mostly due to misinformation. Cases of severe side effects are often attributed to incorrect dosages and/or starting or stopping the drug before the full course has been ran. If you respect steroids, they will respect you. They are very safe for healthy people.
Switch Up the Order of Your Routine.
Die hard lifters have trouble mixing up their routine. There is only so many ways you can move your body safely while holding a substantial amount of weight without breaking form. However, mixing up the order of the sets you do can make a huge difference. Always keep your body guessing. To compliment your workout, try a heavy resistance band to help target motions you may not be able to accomplish with free weights.
From steroid supplementing to simply rearranging your workout, when you keep your routine guessing… you keep your muscles guessing too, leading to a bigger, stronger you without all that damn stalling out.
