The most fun part of your training is your first six months, in my opinion. Plateaus are non-existent, every time you pick up the bar you feel like Hulk, body fat plummets and you’re sprinting towards a 400 pound deadlift while snapping at babes in bars to come sit next to you. It’s like the honeymoon phase of a relationship when you’re convinced that she is absolutely perfect.
Then a funny thing happens.
You stop getting away with everything. She starts nagging a little bit, taking away a few of your guys nights and admitting she actually hates watching Sunday Ticket.
Your body will most certainly adapt and plateau after the honeymoon phase of a training program. When that happens, don’t freak out. It’s just the newer, stronger version of yourself telling you it’s ready for more because same-old, same-old is no longer getting it done.
Some of these tips will get you stronger in big lifts, others a bit stronger in stabilizing and performance muscles. By incorporating these into your training you’ll ensure you are always stronger, healthier and closer to the goal of being a full-on ninja.
