Results Stalling (Sample Diet Attached)

  1. Results Stalling (Sample Diet Attached)


    I'm about a month into a recomp and my results have been plateauing lately. I haven't been able to shed the last bit of fat or gain much muscle lately. I consume 2000-2300 (2300 on workout days) calories a day and follow 40/40/20 macros. I'm very precise with my diet and would love to hear any input on how I could tweak it, add in different carb sources, ect. I lift 4 days a week; chest, back, legs, and shoulders/arms and stay active on my off days. I'm 19 years old, 5'9" 155lbs. around 8% body fat.

    I'll attach a normal day of eating to the next post. Any input is greatly appreciated.

    I included a little about my training above. I lift 4 days a week chest, back, legs, and then an arm/shoulder day. Sessions last 45mins to an hour. Usually I start with a heavy 5x5 compound lift (squat, bench, deadlift) then transition to higher reps with more isolated movements. I stay active on my off days and always have 3 solid days of high intensity cardio.

  5. Might I suggest something just to add to training to see what could possibly help you? With your 5x5 movements, lighten the weight a little and be explosive with it. Obviously in complete control, but just be explosive. I have found in my own training that by being explosive for a month or so that when I go back to training heavier, I am actually stronger and my body composition has changed. It works for me anyways, so thought I would suggest it to you.

    I will definitely incorporate that into my routine starting next week. I'm always willing to try new workouts. Thanks for the advice man.

  7. Hey not a problem. Let me know how it works for you.

    I will for sure man. I could see the explosive movements being really beneficial while doing squats.

  9. im currently on a cutting/recomp diet and it did plateau after about a month. for 2 weeks i didnt loose a single pound but stuck with the diet and then i started loosing again and haven't hit another plateau so far. Im also doing high rep(20) medium weight with 30-40sec rests and once a month id have a heavy day for each muscle group. I still have my strenght as when i started and ive been doing lower weight )

  10. Cardio? If not it if you do, look into HIIT.
