- You haven’t been on your program long enough. Relax and stay the course. Don’t expect to see bigger guns, tighter glutes or a smaller belly until you’ve been consistently and progressively training for at least 4 to 6 weeks.
- You’re on the wrong program: Matching the program to your individual fitness goals is key to getting the results you want in a reasonable amount of time. Don’t know where to start? CLICK HERE!
- You’re not eating the right food. You’ve all heard the phrase ‘you can’t out train a bad diet’. It’s true. Your body needs lean protein, healthy fats, lots of vitamins, minerals and fiber and a bit of starchy carbohydrate to function well while you’re training as well as to translate that training into physical change.
- You’re lifting too often. Beware, when it comes to weight training, there IS too much of a good thing. Muscle fibres need time to rest and repair between workouts. That’s when growth occurs. Train too often and you risk injury, fatigue, failure to progress and sometimes even losing ground in the weight room. Over training is to be avoided.
Here’s few more:
✅ Lack of Sleep
✅ Too much Cardio
✅ Not lifting heavy enough
