Hey guys !
So I am vegetarian for like 5 years and vegan for one year. I don't have weight to lose at all but I wanna be more toned, so I started to do a lot of sport (6 days per week, for one or two hours) since november but I don't have the results I want, it's better but it's so damn slow ... When I see that some girls in 4 months change totally their body, I am super disappointed by me. I mean I feel my abs but the little layer of fat on it doesn't wanna leave xD . So I started the Insanity Challenge, I begin the 3rd week and I hope now I will see results soon, but someone has an ideo of what I could do wrong ?
Thanks you =)
Yes, your overtraining...
Do two things to remedy this...
1. Increased the intensity of your training.
2. Reduced the volume and frequency of your training considerably (no more than 2-3 brief, intense workouts per week).
When i did this, progress began to happen in leaps and bounds (without any changes to my diet what so ever). There is nothing magic about this, its actually very simply, in order for the body to adapt, the training stress needs to be threatening enough in order for the body to warrant an adaptive response, and if you train again before the response has had an opportunity to take place, then you'll be merely digging another hole into your body, and thus you'll see very little in the way of meaningful progress.
Hope this helps
