“Technique is a strong aspect.”
For the past year I have been lifting weights, trying to gain and get lean. And for most people, they have their New Years resolution. But they never stick to their goal. For me, it’s not hard to find a program that works for me and work with it. And for the others how do you stay motivated and continue to push. And that is all about discipline, which I can’t show you how to have in life. You have to be able to get out of bed and make yourself do the work. But while you’re putting in the work remember to understand how to work your muscles and what’s your limits.
I know how much I can lift in my bench pressing efforts. And that means starting at a certain weight and then week by week, going up from there. For example, I have a 45 pound barbell and two 45 pound plates on each side. Then you add 10 pounds each week to both sides. Once you hit a wall, and you will hit a weight you can’t lift, then switch it up. Try instead of going for 10 reps at three sets, try 5 sets at 7 reps. By changing your sets and reps you can now keep yourself from getting to set into one workout too long. You can also injure yourself in the process.
When trying to exercise, it will feel like a drag when trying to get yourself motivated. I have been through this, where there are days I won’t even try. And then I remember where I want to see myself, and that’s when I get back at it. Here is where you will shine in your training because once you start to do the things you don’t like, then you will succeed.
