Measureable results take more than just breaking a sweat

Never confuse “working out” with training. Working out or exercising is often to just experience the moment.

Training is focused on progressively working towards specific goals by adjusting certain variables.

If you just want to just  breathe hard, sweat a lot, and flop on the floor when it’s over then this is not for you.


However, if you want to get stronger over weeks, months, and years read on.

You must have good program design and keep a training journal or log book.

Sets, reps, frequency, intensity, volume, etc. all need to be planned out and tracked


There must also be a way to test your progress periodically and compare results.  CIMG0573 00000

This can be achieved through regular competitions or testing at your home gym.

Either way, the results must be measured in some way. This will require a lot more discipline, but that’s how people get strong. It is worth it!
