NEW YORK, Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the most frustrating aspects of losing weight is hitting a plateau. Oftentimes, plateaus need to be addressed by changing up one's routine, as the body has become used to the activity that is demanded of it. The makers of Hydroxycut™ agree with the tips that Men's Fitness has shared in a recent article. While these tips are targeted at efforts to build muscle, they can be adapted to fit the needs of your fitness plan.
Many individuals assume that a plateau can only be overcome if they completely change up their workout routine, but this is not so. According to the article: "The good news is you don't have to start from scratch. In fact, abandoning a program you've been successful with for something very different can be counterproductive, causing you to lose the adaptations your body has already made. Instead, your best option is to take what's been working and tweak it, one step at a time. It's a process called 'periodization,' and strength coaches have used it for years to keep athletes making steady progress and avoiding plateaus."
One periodization tactic more focused on weight loss is to change the type of cardio activity during a workout. So to overcome a plateau, individuals may choose to use the treadmill instead of the stationary bike.
Changing resting periods is also a way to minimally adjust a workout with optimal impact. The article explains that weight loss can be achieved with short to moderate rest periods. Weight loss can also be achieved through circuit training, which requires the performance of several exercises with very little, or even no, rest in between each set. This can increase the metabolic rate and, ultimately, burn more calories.
The makers of Hydroxycut™ understand that losing weight takes dedication. When individuals who have seen results from their workout routines plateau they can become frustrated and discouraged. The makers of Hydroxycut™ encourage individuals to incorporate periodization into their diet and exercise routines to enhance their weight loss results.
