I’m not saying dump your current programme, as consistency is so important in hitting your goals, but there are definite positives to throwing in a curve ball occasionally. Read on to find out what these benefits are, and the easy way to slot new activities into your schedule!
The ego is a little devil when it comes to weightlifting. “More weight!“, it says, and I usually comply, somehow getting through the lift using willpower alone.
Eventually, you reach a point where sheer grit is no longer enough, despite the ego screaming at you for more. There’s something that’s stopping you from getting heavier – be it technique, mobility, or flexibility. That’s definitely something that’s happened to me, though I was unsure what the problem was and how to fix it. But how do you get back to basics without bursting your over-inflated ego?
