Reevaluate your progress at the end of a fitness regimen cycle (every 6-8 weeks)
At the end of any 6-8 week workout cycle, evaluate your progress by testing your increases. Liu (2007) found that evaluating your progress can not only be used as an indicator of how much fitness improvement has taken place, but in some cases, an evaluation can be used as a wake-up call for someone who saw less than stellar results. In these latter cases, an evaluation can indicate that either that a particular workout regimen was ineffective or their effort levels were lacking so fitness benefits can be reached.
