I worked out today and actually didn’t go very heavy on weight. I could feel drained and could tell that I’ve been working hard for a while and I decided to go light.
That’s what I’d recommend you do too, every once in a while, if you want to avoid injury and still have the privilege to say that you were dedicated to go to the gym and lift; because you’re still lifting, just not as intensely.
It was tempting to go all out and aim to beat my previous record on bench press today but I held off and I feel that it was the best decision. After all, I will see gains over time if I just stay consistent, listen to my body’s signals, and make sure my body is receiving the right amount of macronutrients.
It’s those three things that will help you get the most out of your time in the gym:
2) paying attention to your body
3) eating the right amount of macronutrients.
just keep in touch with those three things to make the most gains per your lifts.
Do those things and remember that not every day has to be a tremendous occasion where you break another plateau and lift more weight. Remember that if you stay dedicated to your time in the gym and focus on those three basic things those gains will happen over time. Done.
