If Your Gains Have Stalled Out of Nowhere, This May Be Why

Avoiding a plateau by keeping your routine fresh may keep your gains from halting.

If you’ve been eating five meals per day and lifting five days per week but noticed that your gains have stalled lately, it may be because you need to switch up your routine.

You probably have good intentions and a good work ethic, but your progress might be stagnant because your body is looking for a change. 

I would suggest training four times per week and splitting the workouts into three full-body workouts and one conditioning-focused workout. And focus on upping your bench, squat, and deadlift while supplementing with bodybuilding-style sets and reps for accessory work.
