When it comes to training and body composition, the saying “ you get out what you put in” couldn’t be further from the truth. If you aren’t prepared to put the hard hours in at the gym even on the days you don’t fancy it then you can’t expect to see the changes in your physique and/or strength that you are looking for. The same goes for your diet.
When it comes to gaining strength the importance of a good programme cannot be undervalued. At some point in your strength journey you can’t just go into the gym and lift more. It doesn’t work, trust me I’ve tried it.
You will need to follow some kind of programme designed to get you from where you are to the next stage. At the very least you should have a plan of how you intend to get there.
So you went besatmode last night on legs and today you can’t walk. First of all well done! But if we get serious for a second should we be training again when we are still sore?
