 You can be strong, even if you struggle to gain lean mass or lose fat. You have the ability to get stronger, right now regardless of where your at. Take it form me. I was 6' 2inches and a whopping 145 pounds in my early 20's. With alot of guess work and reading and watching what people do in the gym i am now a strong 180 pounds. Focusing on getting stronger will help with lean mass , fat loss and whatever goals you have. Cause stronger is better. Period.

. This months Mens health mag has a couple moves that trainers hate They are the kipping pullup( if you have not seen it google it.....terrrible), 45 degree leg press(no core strength required) Tricep dip( ouch for you shoulders when done incorrectly). I like to add a few more, Close grip upright rows- shoulder killer. Crunches done on the floor- low back killer. Ok peeps which ones do you hate? please leave comments below

 YOU ARE NOT TAKING ANY 'TIME OFF'- Very good strength programs have a 'overeaching period' to push your body to where it has never been before, followed by lowered training stress to allow your body to recover and get stronger. You cannot hit your PR every training session. I used to be guilty of this. Till i figured out this why i was worn out and injured all the time. Dont make the same mistake.

 Bored with your training? Stalled progress? Take these 3 tips and bust through your plateau. 1. Instead of reps, do exercise for time. Do had many reps for 30 seconds instead of pumping out your usual 12. 2. Change your exercise order. Do bicep curls before your chin up. Or reverse the order of your training. 3. Use a different tool. Do dumbbell presses instead of barbell. Use a medicine ball for your core training. Use the bike instead of the treadmill. Anything to keep your body guessing.

 Ever noticed how sporting teams has success over a long period of time? The players change but the results stays them same. They have a great system. How does that relate to exercise? If you go into gym and just do a series of random trainings, then that'S what your results will be ... random. However if you follow your plan or 'system' that has the basic body movements of pushing, pulling, squatting and hinging or 'old school' training your results wil not be random. They will be awesome.
