I cannot seem to break 230 pounds. I’ve upped my caloric intake to 4300, whereas my plateau initially began when I was at 4000. and still absolutely no increase. My training goes to failure on my last set, the intensity is there.
I’ve tried three different programs in the past few months, Hypertrophy 1 by Alwyn Cosgrove and Lou Schuler, Thib’s Superhero program, and one of the phases out of Thib’s Jekyll and Hyde.
I’ve been hovering around 228-229 almost since Christmas and I’m just sick of it. I suppose the obvious answer is up my calories more, but having done that and seeing no results I have to wonder a bit.
For reference, I began lifting last June at a weight of 195 lbs. A month and a half ago a skinfold test told me I was 12% bodyfat.
So, any tips for a 4-5 month plateau?
