    What to do when I plateau?

    I think I am hitting my first plateau after a couple months of great gains. How do I get past this?

    What I mean is how should I change my routine? Do I change exercises, or should I change the weight I lift, or should I do more sets? For example here's what I do for biceps.

    3 sets hammer curls
    3 sets straight bar curls
    3 sets preacher curls
    3 sets (not sure of the name) dumbell curls where you rotate the dumbell while you lift it up.

    What is a good change of routine to get past the plateau?

    I do more for biceps than any other body part because they don't get sore unless I do a ton of sets. I think that's just how my body works.

    soreness doesnt mean growth
    and sometimes less is more.

    Well I can't eat more, I can't rest more, and I'm not going to use test so I guess I just have to change up my workout.

    You could also change lifting days around, say you do chest every monday and back every tuesday, flip those change your sets up and possibly put some different exercises in replacement of others.
