Chris Powell’s Personal Strategies - Part 2 (1 of 5)

Chris Powell’s Personal Strategies         Part 2

Utilize the Rule of 6.....

One of the common problems people face with weight loss is the “plateau.” A fitness plateau refers to a point at which the workout routine that you have fails to show you results.

For example, you may follow the same diet and perform the same exercises week in and week out. You may lose 8lbs one week -10 lbs the next. Then one week you don’t lose any weight, or you might even gain a few pounds back. DON’T BE DISCOURAGED!

This is normal – this is called a fitness plateau, and it happens to everyone regardless of his or her level of experience. The mother of four who wants to lose 30 lbs before summer can hit a plateau just as easily as a professional athlete can.

But why do we hit these fitness plateaus?

Our bodies adapt to everything we expose them to – especially working out! If you repeat the same work out again and again, your body will adjust to it, and the results will eventually level off.

That is why Chris Powell is an advocate of the “Rule of 6.”

It actually takes about six exposures to a specific workout for your body to experience all of its benefits. To experience increased fitness and weight loss benefits you need to change things up after every six workouts.

Cycling through different workouts will challenge your body in ways that will increase your results and help you avoid the dreaded “plateau.” There is a variety of different workouts that Chris illustrates and explains on

Remember the “Rule of 6” and get the weight loss results that you are looking for!

Happy Healthy Living..
