I've Hit A Plateau!!

Hi Guys
I've been working out for a while now & seen some great results! I've added a stone in weight but turned it into lean muscle, gained good size in biceps, shoulders, back etc.  Abs have started coming through now too (well, a visible top two sets at least!)
My issue is, since these results, I've not noticed much more of a change.  Is this normal?
My diet is correct, & I've began to increase the weight size too but it doesn't seem to happen as quick as it started.
I wondered if I was training as hard as I should or if I should up the weights to gain more muscle mass & at the same time, reducing bodyfat.
Thing is, I'm doing those things.  Perhaps I simply need to continue to build on what I've already achieved so far.
I'm not after huge muscle mass nor competition level.  Just a clean, cut, defined physic.

    If you're absolutely positive diet etc is all perfect then it's probably just a plateau - they happen (in all sports). Just keeping at it will put work in the bank for when the plateau is over, lifts in the bank pay good intrest!
    Alternatively, you could use it as an excuse to change things a bit. Try a different routine for a month or two, do some different exercises, change the split - you might stumble on something you prefer.

    Change things up, doesnt have to be anything drastic but it sounds like body has adapted to what your doing.
