Workout Techniques To Break Plateaus

Plateaus - 4 tips to break it

Everyone hates plateaus right? I do of course because I want more and more gains. Plateaus is a block, a barrier that prevents your body making anymore changes/gaining size/reducing/gaining muscle because overtime as we do the same routines for X amount of time, your body is adapted to those condition and you're now need to increase your workout in a new way/style. Your intensity must be a little more empowering. To maximize muscle growth, you need to tear down the muscle, break it down harder each in every day. Doing the same intense workouts won't progress you any further, you'll just be in 'shape' rather than building muscle. Not only does changing up the style help build muscle, it helps fight fat off more effectively.

  1.  Time Under Tension - Always keep tension on the muscle that you're training for max results. (concentric | eccentric movement - Lift Slow on the way UP, slow on the way Down, Fast on the way Up, Slow on the Way Down). Change the way you lift, feel the connection with the different angles you're lifting from, train with different variety to increase the pump. 
  2. Pause reps - Pausing within your lift/workout is similar to Time under Tension. You're pausing basically in the middle where the muscle contracts the most to provide a blood rush into that area for a huge PumP. 
  3.  Partials - Partials are what it means, doing half-reps. Doing half reps is going to activate more fibers (= more gains). Do this when failure hits.
  4.  Drop Sets - Using the weight you started off from and dropping the weight slowly to further the training of that muscle. Example: 40 LB dumbell bicep curls x 8 -- Hits failure and Drops weight Lb to 20 LB and Rep out and Drop weight and repeat.

 These are the techniques that I use personally to help increase the intensity of my workout to break plateaus. Basically, you need to have variety of styles within your workout regime. If not, your body will adapt. You need to confuse the body (Shocking the body) with new exercises.

OMAD Conclusion (One Meal A Day)

My Conclusion on OMAD (One Meal A Day)@Delicatenutrition

Before I started OMAD, I had to think of why I was doing it. People saw benefits from eating once a day and I wanted to see results from it. OMAD is a 23:1 Ratio, meaning you only eat ONCE Per day. There's countless of benefits or reasons why people eat once a day. Some reasons are health benefits, eating restrictions, dieting, improving body fat burn (FAT LOSS) and much more. I wanted to perform OMAD to see if thus was true.

Wheelchair Weight Loss Tips   How to Lose Weight in a WheelchairFrom a Chubby Boy to Being a Shredded, 6 pack Abs, in A Wheelchair ♿I wasborn with a disease that put me in a wheelchair. Being a wheelchair user is hard to go about losing weight because we are limited, meaning, it is harder for us to get some type of physical exercise in depending on your condition.

Personally, depending on your situation, that should not be an excuse to be overweight or underweight; You must be disciplined and committed if you are serious about losing weight and staying lean!

I saw that I had a fat pack under my chin/my neck area, my stomach was bulged out, and I knew my body was not liking it. I did not ca…

If you're trying to focus on weight management, understand nutrition and what food contains what.
In this day in age, a lot of people are going out to grab a quick meal, no biggie right? But those meals may contain a lot of unnecessary calories - packed with [excess] carbs, sugar, sodium, and more. With all these excessive additives, you're in the danger zone to gain weight.
