5 Worst Exercise Mistakes That Lead to a Plateau

Do you always hit a plateau shortly after starting a workout routine? Your age & genetics are not to blame and your metabolism is not broken (promise!). You likely made some of these very common mistakes. Let me show you what to avoid, plus the #1 way to kickstart your metabolism & skyrocket your calorie burn -- in half the time. Goodbye belly fat, hello results!

If You're a Woman Over 40 (Like Me), Getting Lean & Fit Can Be More Challenging

If you're a woman over 40, you already know that getting lean and fit can be more challenging.

Hormones get wacky. I was born in '78. So, yes, I know!

If you feel like you've tried it all: lots of cardio, spin classes, weights, yoga, and haven't gotten the results you're after, you're probably making one or more of these five mistakes...

Mistake #1: Doing Long Bouts of Cardio

Yes, you should incorporate cardio if you want to lose weight and burn fat, but there's a right way and a wrong way.

If you've been hitting the treadmill, elliptical, or spin bike, you already know it takes a lot of time and effort to see any results. And it also tends to spike your hunger hormones. So, you end up eating more calories than you burn off.

So, I want to share the most effective way to pump up your cardio routine that will get you insane results in half the time -- without making you feel famished or causing unnecessary stress on your joints like a lot of long repetitive cardio workouts do.

Once you learn this simple tweak, the light bulb is going to go off the first time you try it. I can't wait for you to see how awesome this works -- you'll never go back to regular cardio again!

Mistake #2: Doing Isolated Exercises

If you're hitting the weights, I love it. You're on the right track.

Muscle is key and not just for toning and firming. Muscle is what boosts your metabolism, so you can burn more fat and calories around the clock. If you want results, you've got to get after that muscle.

However, doing isolated exercises like bicep curls and tricep kickbacks is not very effective. These one-muscle-at-a-time move simply don't stimulate enough muscle fibers to build lean muscle or extend enough energy to maximize your calorie burn.

To boost your metabolism and tone and tighten things up, you've got to do exercises that stimulate multiple muscle groups, simultaneously.

That is how you build lean muscle and burn more calories at the same time.

Using these types of exercises, which I'll explain on the next page (they do have a name!) will dramatically accelerate your results.

And all you need is a pair of dumbbells. This is a total game-changer and you are gonna love the results!

Mistake #3: Doing Crunches and Sit-Ups to Lose Belly Fat

If you want flat, firm abs, crunches and sit-ups will not help. They don't make your abs any more lean or defined and they definitely don't burn enough calories or fat. Not to mention, sit-ups are terrible for your back.

The key to getting flat abs is to burn off that stubborn layer of belly fat that's hiding them!

In the next few minutes, I'll show you the fastest way to burn away ab clap while stimulating all of your core muscles, so you can finally start shedding stubborn belly fat to reveal flat, firm abs.

Mistake #4: Repeating the Same Workout Routines

Repeating the same workouts over and over is a sure-fire way to hit a plateau.

Your body is smart and it has an amazing ability to adapt. So, when you repeat the same workouts over and over again, your body becomes more efficient and it doesn't have to work as hard, which means less calorie burning for you.

To keep seeing changes in your body, you've got to keep changing things up. So, I'm going to tell you exactly how often you need to change your workout routine (yes, there is an actual number!) and what needs to change to keep your body guessing, so your results keep coming.

Mistake #5: Doing Longer Workouts to Burn More Calories

This is a biggie! Longer workouts do not equal better or faster results.

If you've been exercising and your body isn't changing much, you can't do more of the same thing and expect a different result.

When it comes to getting lean, fit, your body responds to quality over quantity. So, I'm really excited to share with you the number one way to supercharge your workouts and work out smarter, not longer.

This simple, but often overlooked method is the single fastest way to get lean and toned while cutting your workout time to less than 30 minutes. (Yes, really!)

In fact, I will never give you a workout that is more than 25 minutes...NEVER! But get ready because you will sweat and we are gonna wake up muscles you forgot you even had.

Alright, you already know that to get lean, toned, and fit, you have to exercise, there's no shortcut there.

But there are specific types of exercises and workout routines that take much less time and train your body to produce a flood of fat-burning hormones that will have you burning more calories around the clock even after your workout is over. (Yes, that's a real thing!)
