Yes that dreaded word that all exercise lovers hate - Plateau, or more like hitting the plateau.
Is Plateau underrated though?
I ask because for a year or so I have plateaued on some specific exercises. For example shoulder laterals. I can get 25 lbs for good 12 reps and 30 for 10, 35 for 8. I try to go higher and my form flops and I don't want to do 45 for 3 reps or anything like that. In other words my weight for shoulder laterals hasnt gone up.
At the same time my shoulder heads look so much better today than they were a year back.
So I guess my question is, is it bad to hit a plateau if you keep doing the same weight with great form and receive more benefits than to try increasing the weight and getting hurt?
