Two myths that can sabotage your training without you realizing it

uchYou train hard, eat clean, get enough sleep so you should be doing great, right?

Not always! Let’s look a little closer at why performance is not improving.

  • Myth #1–I can take several  weeks off and come back as strong as before. Usually upon returning to the gym I hear people say things  like, “I can’t believe how much strength I lost.” No kidding, what did you expect? You might train hard while you are there, you’re just not there enough.


  • Myth #2-I can do other types of training on what should be my rest days and still excel in my lifting. Rest days are there for a reason, and it is not to play other intense sports between your lifting sessions. Some light active recovery is fine, but if you over do it, you will pay the price in decreased performance in your lifting.

Without consistent training and sufficient rest you will never be as good as you could have been.
