4 Possible Reasons You’re Not Getting Stronger
1. YOU’RE ONLY DOING WHAT YOU ARE GOOD AT, NOT WHAT YOU NEED.
Doing what you’re good at only keeps you where you’re at. Sometimes you have to do the things you hate and get better at them to get to the new things you don’t even know you like better yet. Don’t avoid exercises that you suck at. Just keep at it until you’re good at it.
2. YOU ARE DOING THE SAME MOVEMENTS- OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
The body must learn or relearn new movements to build strength and avoid repetitive stress injuries and strength plateaus. Change it up every 4-6 weeks to build strength.
3. YOU ARE INCONSISTENT WITH YOUR TRAINING.
This will make getting to your goals much harder if not impossible. Train consistently whatever that means to you. Short workouts every other day, longer workouts 3 times a week, whatever fits your lifestyle. Be accountable to someone. A trainer, workout partner or friend.
4. YOU ARE NOT MIXING UP YOUR TRAINING STYLES.
Try some strength and agility classes like HIIT or Tabata or if you’re in my neighborhood try Body Camp at World Gym with me. These classes are not the old aerobic classes they use to be. They are now full on workouts that will challenge the fittest of dedicated gym goers. These classes can train muscles in different ways that you may have a hard time doing on the regular floor or just don’t know how to. Don’t be shy you’ll have fun and be as challenged as you choose to be.
