What's your plan for training?
Many exercise enthusiasts "go through the motions" in their training regimens without having a specific plan of attack or strategy in place.
This greatly limits the effectiveness of training.
The fact is, to move the ball forward and get results (gain strength, add muscle, lose fat, or improve skill and performance), you have to know where you are and where you're going.
That's where these concepts can help you right now and identify 4 distinct training phases.
You train hard, right?
You're putting in the effort and most of the time your workouts are pretty damn good.
You probably feel like you're doing the right things.
But, unfortunately, your results suck.
Well, maybe they don't suck, but they're not as good as you'd like.
(#93) I've got a personal story to share with you this week on the podcast.
Several years ago I had a major back injury that had me literally incapacitated as a young adult.
It was a training related injury and also a major lesson that was a turning point in my life.
What was one of the worst life experiences I've ever gone through ended up transforming me in so many ways.
