PT Ian Gardner shares his expert tips to help you bust that rut and build more muscle

It's a tale as old as time/gym memberships: you hit the gym consistenly, five days a week, fuelled by that pre-workout that makes your fingers tingle and replenished by that post-workout shake you were told would guarantee 'serious gains'. You're feeling good, looking good, and lifting heavier than ever before. But then, suddenly, all that all changes – or should I say, nothing changes. You're not packing on any more muscle and you're not lifting any heavier weights. No matter how much time and effort you put in, you just can't make any changes. You, my friend, have hit the dreaded plateau. But don't cancel your membership and turn to a lift-free life just yet. Help is at hand in the form of these simple strategies for mixing up your routine and seeing progress once more.
