- Plateaus - You'll notice your weight loss will slow or stop completely. As well as muscle gains, the amount of weight you're lifting and stamina.
- Concentration - You have a harder time focusing on things. You're more likely to slack, daze off, and miss details.
- Stress Increases - You seem to be short all the time. You have a difficult time "dealing" with normal things in life.
- Poor Immunity - You start to catch colds/flus a little too often.
- Mood Swings - Doesn't take much to change your mood.
- Depression - Speaks for itself.
- Headaches - If you're having these daily, there's something wrong.

- Because these exercises are high-intensity and high-energy, you should perform them at the beginning of your workout, after an appropriate warm-up. Simple movements like Lunges or Marches are a good idea, so you get the benefits of stretching without wearing yourself out.
- Don't go overboard with weight. You can see benefits by using light weight. The key is to employ a full range of motion and execute each rep under control.
- With jumps, limit yourself to no more than 80 reps to prevent injury.
- Because they can be hard on the body, you should have at least 48 hours of rest between triple-extension workouts.

We want improvements and permanent changes quickly as possible. Sadly, it's the culture we live in, but anyone can tell you that achieving lifelong goals is not an overnight hobby. Lofty goals are admirable, but with resolutions and goal setting, the end of a resolution often happens at the beginning. It takes a strong-willed person to take action on an inspired goal. Lack of a plan is much like having a brand new car full of gas and a destination, but no map of how to get to where you want to go.
