Most people don't really stall for a long, long time. They only think they stall. That's my honest opinion. And when they do hit these soft walls, they are already pretty darn big if bodybuilding is the focus.

I work with elite naturals and I can tell you most don't do anything. They simply hit the gym and do what they always did. Most don't deload, and most don't eat more (certainly not as an advanced bodybuilder because aggressive bulking is a road to fast fat gains). They tend to add volume over time and not focus as much upon adding strength past a certain point. Sure, they get gradually stronger, but it's not the prime focus after a certain point in time.
