Tips for Avoiding Strength Training Plateaus

If you're new to a strength training, it's common to hit a plateau after several months. If you answer yes to any one of the following questions, you may not be maximizing your workouts. Are you performing the same number of repetitions with the same amount of weight? Sticking with the same exercises in the same order during each workout? Or, are you focusing solely on your workouts rather than considering what you do before and after them, too? Get tips to avoid plateaus from ACE Exercise Physiologist, Jessica Matthews.
