Uncertainty is the very condition to impel man to unfold his powers."
- Erich Fromm
How much time, effort, and money is wasted by trainees looking for the perfect training split, routine, supplement, exercise, or piece of training equipment? If only they could spend that time, effort, and money on actual training, competent coaching, and good food, imagine how much further they would progress...
From time to time, we all get taken in by the slick marketing and we all hope that maybe, just maybe, the promises of the latest "Add 50 Pounds to Your Bench Press in Five Days!" routine will come to pass. But, statistically speaking, they never do.
Train hard. Work your weaknesses. Build your strengths. Get rest. Eat well. Be consistent. Keep a training journal.These are the "secrets" to long-term gains. It is simple, but not easy. It requires a long-term commitment and gains will not always be apparent, but stay the course and you will reap the benefits.
