A plateau is a period of time in which your body is adapting to a stimulus and is reflecting no observable change although you have not changed your routine.

Go read the book "Mastery" by George Leonard. Great book, its all about plateaus. its also only like 80 pages (if that). You can read it in an afternoon.

The quote in my sig is from that book.
