Hey Jamie, I've dropped 15kgs in three months and think that not putting it back on is my motivation to keep going with the workouts. Using the various recommend workouts via the app is keeping it fresh. Maybe add a quick cardio one in to rejuvenate the workouts. I did the boxing one which was quite fun. Marc

Try to shock your body from time to time to overdo plateaus. May it be in reducing your intake to a starvation minimum for 2 or 3 days, doing a static state cardio session at least 30% more challenging than you used to until your completely drained and think you may wanna throw up, using a weight you can barely handle and work your muscle till failure in a downward pyramid (reducing the weight little by little and doing as much reps as you can just still do with pain), trying HIIT cardio sessions with 90% of your maximum for 30 secs, then 30 secs moderate, then 30 secs tough, repeat for 10 times...the list is long.

Just try incorporating something which makes your body think 'What the heck?!'. The death of each progress is comfort zone.

Enjoy!

I would suggest taking the time to reassess your routine.

Is the something in your diet that can be tweaked (added or subtracted)?

Do you need to add exercises or resistance?

Is the number on the scale what you are seeking or the way your body looks and feels?

Strength training helps me burn more fat by adding muscle tone.
