It is called a plateau. Most everybody hits them at some time. Your body gets used to a routine or diet or whatever. You need to change up your exercises, your set/rep scheme, your diet, something.
That is why you will find a lot of articles here about periodization (changing up your routine), calorie and carb cycling (changing up your diet), etc.
If you describe your diet and exercise routine in detail along with your current stats and goals, I am sure we can suggest a host of options for changes.[/quote]
I’ve just changed my exercise routine recently ( this is my 2nd week )I do different exercises and i uped my reps from 6 - 8 to 8 - 12. As far as my diet is concerned, I was trying to cut weight for the past month by easting about 2300C’s a day (very little if any fat).
I now eat 1g of protein per pound or more a day I try to consume 2g’s of carbs per pound a day and I eat anywhere from 2700 - 3000 calories a day (majority of the time).
Before a workout I take a scoop of Whey Protein with milk and a slow digesting carb like an apple or banana, then after my workout the same amount of Whey protein with the same amount of milk with a fast digesting carb like 500ml bottle of Gatorade.
As far as what I eat it’s mainly fish, bread, eggs, pasta, fat free yogurt, juice, meat, oatmeal and potatoes (occasionally rice).
