Almost everyone would say that their training is spotless and they’re devoted in their diet. Yet, they’re not making any fitness progress.
It’s a universal and classic complaint and here are the possible reasons:
* You’re not specific with your goal. Case in point, if to “be healthy”, “get stronger” or “lose weight” are your goals, forget fitness progress. Your goal wouldn’t cut it.
Get specific: lose 6% of your body fat or increase the weight of your maximum deadlift…By getting specific, you get to your goal quickly because you customize and plan your workout well.
* Not having a training program. A training program is important. Not only does it prevent overuse of muscles, but you get specific results as well.
* Your diet isn’t matched with your training. If you’re an athlete training, then your diet should match up with the demands of your muscles. If you’re workout is towards losing fat, then your diet should closely monitor fat, right?
* You’re not doing the productive movements in your training program. Some movements are a priority to make progress. Good to know that there is a universal list for many training programs which should get prioritized. Some of them are:
– Conventional Squat and Squat variations (Front Squat, Goblet Squat, Box Squat)
– Conventional Bench Press and Bench Press variations (D-Bell Bench Press, Incline Bench Press, Floor Press)
– Conventional Deadlift and Deadlift variations (Sumo Deadlift, Trap-bar Deadlift, Romanian Deadlift)
– Chinup and Chinup variations (Weighted Chins, Close Grip Chins, Pullups)
