My name is Dana Sanders, former NFL running back turned fitness trainer. We are here today in Seattle, Washington at beautiful Alki Point with LIVESTRONG.com. Alright today's question, how to get out of a weight lifting plateau? Most people get into weight lifting plateaus because they do the same exercise over and over again. You know they'll get up and they'll workout Monday, Wednesday and Friday. And they'll do chest and tris on Monday. Back and bi on Tuesday. Legs on Wednesday or Monday, Wednesday and Friday the same routine. So what you want to do is you want to change that up. You might want to do your Monday workout on Friday. Or just even change out the actual workout itself. So instead of doing chest your first day you are going to do back and bis your first day. And then you can also change the weight. You can change the reps. You know there's a lot of different ways to beat a plateau. But it's really important that you do make the change. Because if you keep doing the same things, what's the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over, and over again and expecting different results. Well you are not going to get different results if you continue to do the same thing. So my suggestion is look at your workout. Download a new program and change your workout around. For example, if lets say you are trying to lose weight. Instead of going out jogging every day, walk up hill on a treadmill. Or just walk up hill period. Or get on a treadmill and turn it on, I mean don't turn it on and just run on it. Either way something along those lines. And that's how you beat a weight lifting plateau.
