Why Hitting a Fitness Plateau is a Good Thing

In a previous video, The fit20 Study debunked the myth that a strict 30 minutes per day fitness regime is the only way to get fit.

In this video Dr James Steele addresses a myth that is just as persistent: the plateau myth. The idea that hitting a plateau in our fitness is a bad thing and that we should do something about it.

In reality the plateau is actually a false flat, that you reach after about a year of substantial strength gain. Dr Steele explains why fitness plateaus and how many studies have shown that even top athletes meet a plateau or ceiling, and although it is possible to make small progress after this time, this will take a lot of effort. Where this extra effort may be worthwhile for a top athlete, who just wants to set a slightly better or faster record, for the average person who trains to improve health, the best thing you can do is stay on the plateau!
