Episode 194 – How to Break Through Every Possible Plateau  

Knowing if you’re in a real plateau when pursuing fat loss, strength, and/or muscle mass can be difficult, so in this episode, we dive into all the questions you need to ask yourself to know if you’re in a plateau or not, and most importantly, to learn how exactly to navigate past them. So whether you’re chasing the last bits of fat loss or pushing the limits on muscle growth, there are a lot of golden nuggets in here – with the latter bringing with it plenty of anecdotal pointers that have worked well for us over the years. 

“Your weight is just a by-product of your performance.”
