So I'm two weeks into a phase where I strategically lighten the weight, increase reps, utilize only machines, and increase cardio. Every 8-12 weeks I do this for about two-three weeks. I find that if I train balls to the wall day in day out, I plateau and gains stop. I'm curious if anybody has a template or suggestions on this approach. I get frustrated during this time as I cannot seem to find a program that I want to stick to, and I end up wandering the gym aimlessly for nearly a month. Also during this time I do not use any supplements, just vitamins and minerals.
