    Doing push ups just like Jack Palance
    Maybe take a week off, but switching up your routine is the best idea. Try some high rep weight training or check out the Tabata thread in the S&P forum

    Switching up routine is always the best advice when you've hit a plateau, but it's impossible for us to be more specific when you don't tell exactly what your plateau is.

    What is your goal and how are you failing?

    my goal is to lose weight and so far has been good until the last couple weeks i've been going up and down but not losing, all i do is drink water and eat right and jog and hit the heavy bag 5-6 times a week.i just recently switched from the stationary bike to jogging.

    Are you wieght training at all? Thermogenics do work. Time off is very important to thought. constant switching is always a good way to keep seeing results.

    Yeah, it's not healthy to lose weight week after week after week. Your body will enter a state called ketosis, where it basically begins to eat itself (the muscle and other tissue, not the fat). Does your breath smell vaguely of apple juice or apple sauce? Due to some chemical release caused by ketosis, I forget what exactly, it's said that one's breath begins to smell of those things. If that's the case, up your calories, and take a week or two off, then start again.

    Otherwise, considering what you said, you might just need to cut more calories. With weight loss, the golden rule is always net calorie intake. How many calories did you eat, how many did you burn?

    switch up your routine, different weights, reps sets, different excersise.

    run interval sprints if youve been running for distance, or visa versa
