Virtually everyone who works out with weights will, at one time or another, reach a training plateau. When this happens, each trip to the gym, infact every workout feels like you're reliving Groundhog Day. One workout just melds into the next and you begin to wonder if you'll ever again make any gains. Check out this week's article on Blasting Through Training Plateaus. By implementing the following strategies, you can blast through a plateau and take your physique to new heights.

Before lifting weights, do some light jogging in place, or some aerobics to get the blood flowing, then for each body part, perform 10 - 12 repetitions using very light weight to warm up the muscle. This forces blood into the muscle area and will help prevent strains to the muscle.

 
 
 

 

You Did

 

There have been situations in your life that you thought you would never get through. And yet, you did. There have been challenges you faced that you thought you would never overcome. And yet, you did.

There have been losses you've suffered that you thought you would never be able to get beyond. And yet, you did.

For you are here today, stronger, wiser, more experienced and more knowledgeable as a result of it all. Though the road has had its rough spots, you've successfully made your way along it.

There will certainly be more rough spots ahead, and there may even be some particularly difficult ones right now. So it pays, every now and then, to look back and remember that even though you thought you wouldn't get through, you did.

And now, even more importantly, you will.
