Why You're Not Seeing Progress In The Gym

"But Sarah, I've been going to the gym for months and I haven't seen any progress." ๐Ÿ˜”

I get it! The process can be frustrating and there are SO many factors that go into making progress towards your goals. That doesn't mean to throw in the towel, but maybe you need to reevaluate what you're doing. ๐Ÿ˜‰

โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €

โž– Putting on muscle and changing your body composition takes time. Probably a lot longer than you think too. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ I say that not to discourage you, but to give you realistic expectations of the process! Focus on what you can control daily.

โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €

โž– Your diet matters. A lot. If your training your ass off, but eating like trash then it's going to take a lot longer to get where you want to be. That doesn't necessarily mean you need to be in a caloric deficit though, especially if your primary goal is gaining muscle. ๐Ÿ˜‰

โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €

โž– You might not be pushing yourself as hard as you need to in the weight room. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Are you giving every set your best effort? Or scrolling Instagram not paying attention?

โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €

โž– SLEEP + RECOVERY IS THE MOST UNDERUTILIZED ASPECT OF FITNESS. You need 7-9 hours every night to allow your body time to recover.
