Sometimes you just get into a rut, so some things you need to consider if you're getting to a plateau in your training and your not quite breaking through with those fitness goals
Change it up!
Tempo : time under tension how fast or slow you go.
Range of motion: Full & partial repetitions ( see Matrix section)
Position: Open chain or closed chain exercise ( go to videos)
Weight: ...What % of your maximum lift are you working at & why?
Get a partner /gym buddy as well if you hav'nt got one, you got to change your mindset & stop looking for a quick fix, you won’t find it online either, my suggestion going forward, is to just get out & about, It can be (at times) a pain in the ass to get down to the gym but the interaction is real, the sweat tears the laughter the noise the hustle & bustle, the smells you cant avoid, the chatter in the locker room, the people that you aspire to.. some of us don’t get butterflies with our emotions…we get the whole Zoo!..that’s real, use that to empower you!.
Injury prevention listen up : You got to keep an eye out on your body, most City folk (who are generally desk bound for 8hrs+) make the mistake of coming into the gym working their ars* off (great!) but have not admitted or realised they are unconditioned to do 3-4 days in a row for several weeks on end.
“Bad nutrition & drinking habits" die hard & its usually these two culprits that cause your body to say "fcunkig Billairnt!" I need a vacation..& so you get injured or sore to the point you don't want to go any more.
Build up to it gradually It's good to have a time frame around your goals so why not go one step further & make it a "S.M.A.R.T goal" Specific. Measurable. Achievable. Realistic & Time based.
Makes sure that you look at the whole picture & break down all the elements of what you do & achieve along the journey so that you don't filter & magnify any negatives as a totality of all your hard work that you've done.
