You’re not pushing yourself past your limits
When you are going to the gym every week and do the same routine every time, you start thinking more about how many reps you have instead of how many reps you can do! Muscle mind connection is a real thing! Next time you are exercising, try to ignore the amount of reps and see how many your body can actually handle. After doing this, you can tweak the amount of reps you need to do and you will build more muscle that way.
You’re not eating enough protein
OK, I am sure you are tired of hearing about protein by now, but it is important! Your muscles need protein to help rebuild your muscles once you have broken them down. Plus, eating more protein helps you stay full longer resulting in eating less during the day!
You don’t switch up your routine every few weeks
Think of how your memory works for a second. When you do something repetitively every day such as doing the dishes, or tying your shoes, your mind will remember it and do it effortlessly. This is exactly how your muscles work when you are exercising! Changing up your exercise routine every few weeks keeps your muscles continuously guessing which in turn, seeing more results!
