  • While I am glad to hear that so many people have found Coach Nicole's series on plateau busting useful, I was actually hoping for something a bit more nuanced. The information presented on nutrition, exercise, rest, and water consumption are all things we typically hear about in everyday discussions regarding weight loss. Thus presenting them as crucial pillars for plateau busting is less than useful in that it is routine and repetitive. As someone who has reached a plateau after losing more than 30 pounds and who has varied both workout routines and nutrition intake, consumes close to 3 liters of water a day and gets 7-8 hours of sleep a night-- I am looking for creative solutions that break out of the normal confines of what we are typically told about plateaus. I appreciate Coach Nicole's attempts to tackle this topic knowing that plateaus are unique to individuals, but I honestly believe there must be more innovative solutions and practices available to people to help break through a plateau. Best of luck to those who are facing a plateau! Keep on Going!
  • This article came to me at the right time.
    Thank you so much for helping me find a way to break through this rut that I am in.
  • Coach Nicole, you have helped me regain momentum to overcome the plateau where I have been sitting for over two months. I will explore Exercise TV on demand to find something new to try this week. Thank you so much!
  • Very encoraging article. It was perfect timing that I read this article. I never get enough sleep. I'm always up until 1:00am and 2:00am, knowing I have to be at work at 7:00am. I was also getting too comfortable with my regular exercises and was thinking of only doing the two I felt best about. I didn't know that might cause me to plateau. I will be sure to change it up and try to get more rest.
  • wow i cant believe how helpful that article was!! i found myself nodding my head while reading!! i am defenitly in a bit if plateau right now but i am not giving up i know just how to get out of it now

    thanks so much!!!
  • I think I have hit a plateau so I have been considering buying a Tae bo tape just to add something different to my workout and maybe adding some reps to my strength training workout.

    Thanks for this article, because I REALLY needed to read that! I've heard that you're supposed to change your workout every so often, but I never heard WHY. Finding out that my muscles get ver efficient at doing the same exercises over and over is exactly what I needed to know!
  • This was a great reminder of what is needed to overcome a plateau. I'm saving it for future reference!
  • Nicole - I would love it if you could explain how over training causes a person to not sleep as mentioned in this article...
