When you’ve been training for a while and have noticed little to no progress in weight loss (or strength gains), you have likely reached what we call a plateau.

This means that your body has become too used to the activities and/or exercises you have been doing in order to lose weight. In order to overcome the plateau, it’s important to challenge your body with new exercises or to increase intensity/difficulty of your regular exercises.

If you like to run or walk, for instance, you may want to consider increasing your speed every two minutes to increase your heart rate even more. For example, walk two minutes, run two minutes and repeat for 20-30 minutes. For runners, run two minutes at your normal speed then sprint for one minute and repeat for 20-30 minutes.
