How to Overcome the Weight Loss Plateau

Shuri has a question for you and you're a fan of Jennifer's advice right very very much I started following her on Instagram two and a half years ago and that was when my weight loss journey started this summer I followed one of her challenges about keeping yourself accountable

for your nutrition and this summer I lost 18 pounds so for a total of 38 pounds so excited for you to be here I'm so happy to hear you what's your question for me I still have 13 more pounds to lose and for the past four to six

weeks I've been pretty much at a plateau so I was wondering if there's something that I could do to jumpstart my weight loss so I could get down to my goal when it comes to the plateau we have to just assume we're all going to hit those plateaus

and how do we overcome them when we do hit a plateau that's my best advice for that first look at what you're currently doing look at your training program how can you modify it so the moves you're performing maybe change their intensity the reps the tempo maybe try

something new maybe try a dance class throw something new shock your body then look at the nutrition once more because as your metabolism rate changes because you're losing quite a few pounds and then last but not least recovery and rest people overlook this one make sure you are

programming rest and recovery for the movements I'm going to show you some moves right now and you want to do you mind okay all right let's come up here no time like the present are you a fan of boxing yes okay boxing great to do this anywhere anytime

let's perform shadow boxing so are you left or right-handed right-handed all right step your right foot back go ahead and make fists right next to your face all right so your first punch is your one that's that lead jab and then the – you're gonna pivot through the

back foot that's your cross so let's just go through that jab cross now as you develop the skill here with the shadowboxing we can start to increase the intensity so one two one two I recommend working in about three minute rounds take a minute of rest kind of

bounce through the balls of your feet like the Bucks are avoiding the punches and then as you want to increase that intensity and turned it into a hit workout you can you start to throw those punches with a lot of power you want to try it I'm ready

one two go let's go real hard real fast and start six over your heart rate really important to get your body moving in a different way especially a different plane of motion so the next tip I would give is to increase the intensity of a strength training move

you currently are doing do you currently do maybe squats lunges squats lunges okay do you if before adding weight a great way to increase the intensity and make sure we're engaging the right muscles making sure we're performing these moves with proper form is to use some sort of

resistance this is a great tool right here it's a glute band it engages all the muscles around the hips the glutes so I'm gonna have you step into this go ahead and step in I'm gonna place this glute band right above her knee along her thigh so go

ahead and position it how you feel comfortable alright so step your feet out shoulder-width apart and I want you to perform a squat bodyweight squat as you lower your body down you don't have to go too low for this to be effective drive the knees out into the

glute band and then drive back up so for somebody who's doing squats and you can easily do 20 now we've increased the intensity gonna strengthen those glutes those legs and push past that Plateau how's that feel Sherri okay yeah it's good more intensity right without adding more impact

to the body so that would be something I would easily put into your training program to increase the intensity and I love Jetta how your kick don't involve some fancy gym they just involve bands bodyweight sure you're not gonna get all the advice you need today mm-hmm we

acknowledge that but I think there may be a surprise in store for you so because of your strong desire I'm so inspired by it I want to offer my services through the je method to take you on as a client for the next 30 days get you past

a huge thank you to Jennifer keep us posted sherry and I think sometimes all you need is the motivation and if you ever hit a plateau there's always a way through it and I can tell how excited she is to get through this Plateau you
