What is stagnation?

“When the progress fizzles …”

musculation-progression

Over the months and years of training, the body is changing and the psyche of practicing bodybuilding changes too.  Professional changes, the staffing, training level, or even new eating habits can impact significantly on performance and progress.

Depending on factors related to both training and life outside of the gym, a period of stagnation may occur randomly.  Disturbing right?

It is a kind of physical or psychological saturation that can affect everyone in bodybuilding. The progress is never linear, it is quite normal to peak at a certain level after a period of time. It is obviously frustrating to be be stagnated after progressing more or less quickly and easily than before, to see that what worked in the past no longer does.  However, when this saturation occurs,  it is important to respond and challenge yourself, especially if it affects your morale a lot.  Although it is not easy to review your way of training, especially when the routine has set in, it is worth it and you would find more pleasure in training.

Let’s see the points to be revised to allow you to work through the situation, to calmly continue to move forward toward your goals and your well-being!

Improving oneself to avoid stagnation

« Patience… ! »

One of the qualities that will serve you best in bodybuilding is patience. When we progress, we may not feel our body changing daily, but as long as progress is occurs in the long term, it’s a different story.  So we must keep in mind that we can not get the physical or performance improvements overnight. However, if you can hold on and workout regularly and consistently, you will be rewarded for your efforts.

 

« Optimize training»

la-musculation-1Concerning the exercises, choose compound ones, like squats, rows, dips, push-ups and bench press for example, which are proven to be the best mass builders, especially for those who are not have a very advanced level.  These exercises are essential because they offer every movement necessary for muscle mass gain. Do not necessarily avoid squats for example, with the excuse that you do not control it and you are afraid of getting hurt. Get started cautiously, leaving you time to learn to the proper technique.  Leg training is very important, since it allows such a significant stimulation of hormones including growth hormones to be used in the recovery and growth of all body muscles. It is the same for those you feel are too tiring, as dips or pull-ups are for some. Do not wait to build a solid foundation, because then you can spend more time on isolation exercises.  During this stage, be careful not to change exercises too often.  When it comes to work the same muscle you should stay with the same exercise for at least two months. Why?  Because it takes some time for the muscle fibers  to “understand” that it will “give you pleasure” as it develops.

 

« Break the routine »

 

We saw that it is not necessary to change exercises too often, but to never do so would be counterproductive in the long-term . Offering new exercises to your body is a good thing, because it will cause new stimuli to your muscles.  Also, in addition to increasing gradually the repetitions and consistently progressing in weight, you can vary the number of repetitions, sets and intensity or even make a periodization of your work ranging from development of strength (1-6 repetitions of basic exercises with maximum loads), bodybuilder training (mix of poly-joint exercises and isolation at 8 to 12 repetitions per series with heavy to moderate loads) and strength / endurance (10 to 12 repetitions with a little lighter loads).

« Give yourself 100% safety»

Use your mind to go a little further with each session by performing perfect form for example.  Do not sacrifice form just to increase weight.  If you think you will not finish your set, do not give up even if you take a few seconds longer to achieve the ultimate repetition. If you have no trouble finishing your sets and your speed is always the same, is that you do not really force it.

Force does not mean loading the bar up with the most weight possible, cheating and moving in all directions, using momentum to lift a weight and sacrificing form.  You work for your own body, so choose your weight according to your needs and not by others, otherwise you will never get out of this damn stagnation.  You must be able to perform the movement in a proper way and be totally focused on the technique. Reduce the weight of your 10% bonus when trying to achieve the full series with perfect movements, then return to your regular weight and lift you’ll be able to lift even more.

« A reasonable ambition and unfailing motivation »

 

how-to-implement-pre-fatigue-training-1

Motivation is a key to your progress and your success. It’s normal to not be motivated all the time, at every session. However, take a moment to think about this lack of motivation, which incidentally is even more present in a phase of stagnation.  Fatigue, depression, low morale, lack of pleasure to train? Would you really resign, or will you fight for your goals?  Two choices are available to you, do your best!  It also helps not to train, and to rest when absolutely necessary.

Also, it may help to keep motivated by paying attention to the organization of your sessions, by preserve your progress in a phone app or writing or in Excel for example. So you can keep an eye on the scale of what you have been able to achieve.

Setting unrealistic goals is the best way to quickly get discouraged.  It’s important to stay motivated especially in the short and medium term, celebrating goals that you will soon achieve, but still keeping in mind your main goal, which must be reasonable although it may be ambitious.

 

« Flee overtraining »

Training more often is not a solution, especially if it hinders muscle recovery.  Listen to your body and signs that can reveal this overtraining, as an unusual exhaustion of your program, a high frequency of resting heart rate, feeling stressed and even insomnia for example.  Remember that overtraining could actually shrink your muscles since it tends to make the testosterone/cortisol negative, rather inducing fat storage and muscle loss, and this is definitely not what you want!

« Do not forget to sleep! »

sommeil muscu

Yes, recovery is essential to your progress because it’s outside of your sessions that your muscles really grow!

So it is important to sleep well and sufficiently.  However, feel free to practice your daily nap, but on a weight bench is not optimal and it is not very nice for the guys waiting for their turn.  It is therefore necessary to reserve enough recovery time between sessions, do not train two consecutive days the same muscle and keep in mind that muscles like the biceps work hard during back training, for example.

 

« Adopt a suitable and healthy nutrition »

In the end, nutrition plays an essential role in muscle development. This is your top priority as a bodybuilder and you can not escape it if you really want to evolve.  So, if you are stagnated it may be that your nutrition is not suited to your needs.  You must consume more calories than your body needs to build muscle, since each additional kilo of muscle demands 80Kcal per day to be maintained. Feel free to consume snacks throughout the day in addition to meals, and increasing amounts of quantities, in starchy food particularly, if you see that you have trouble gaining weight. Consume about 2.2 g of protein per kilogram of body weight, avoid bad fats (fried etc …) and instead build your good fat diet (virgin olive oil etc …). In case you want to lose weight, slightly decrease the amount of starch. In addition, you can take supplements such as vitamins or minerals if you are deficient. Remember, patience is paramount.
