    Try out another type of 'workout cycle'.
    The right choice depends upon what you have trained so far.

    In most cases strength endurance training for the next 4-6 weeks could be the key. That is more repetitions with less weight, as you probably already know.

    It is said to be stimulating to the mitochondria, the "power plants of cells",... in case you are in biology. ;-)

    You are at the point where your mind is in control. You have convinced yourself that you are not gaining anymore and that will continue until you change your frame of mind. Burn-out Beware! Dont put to much thought into your workout regimen. The body is a machine. Treat is as such. A healthy diet and good workout habits will get you the gains you want. Remember- Rome wasnt built in a day.

    Keep up the hard work guy you are well on your way. Change up your regimen and keep a positive frame of mine. You have a great summer body already!

    I am a big fan of switching things up. I would completely reinvent your workout routine. Find all new ways to work your body. For example, there are probably about a million exercises to do a basic bench press.

    Research new stuff and get motivated!

    If you would like more then generic advice, give us some details bro. What's your current training setup? (The more detail the better). Whats your current diet like? Are you tracking both workouts, and diet? Using any supplements, protein powder, creatine, anything at all, and if so what is it and how much? Are you using any particular nutrient timing?

    If you can fill in some of those details, I know I can maybe give you some great suggestions and many others probably can as well.

    There are so many variables for this, that its really hard to say anything of value, without knowing more details. Could be overtraining, could be undertraining, could be too long on the current routine, could be a dietary issue, mineral deficiency. Could be about anything. Would be glad to offer my two cents if you can throw out some details bro.
