Let’s talk about effectiveness in training.
If we are truly honest with ourselves the vast majority of us want training that leads to a specific result.
And to achieve this you don’t always have to add something to your training – new exercise, new training method, new training program.
Sometimes all we have to do is:
REMOVE THE FLUFF.
You’ll be left with only the stuff that works.
But unfortunately, I still see a lot of women who are unhappy with their results, and yet, they keep doing these two fundamental mistakes:
Mistake 1: Too Much Exercise Variety
One day you are performing your deadlifts with a heavy load and the other day you are walking into the gym performing single-leg deadlifts with an 8kg kettlebell – in the name of variety.
Some variety is important to training, but most people don’t need as much as they think they do.
Most of the time, the best way to make progress and ensure consistent gains is to do more work per session. This is especially true if the goal is to get stronger.
Mistake 2: Program Hopping
Jumping from one training program to the other that is not built on each other, is your granted way to staying where you are.
Stop getting distracted by shiny programs, that you buy into while the other program is not even finished. I know they promise you leaner legs, toned arms, peachy glutes, and shredded abs.
However, especially if you are a beginner (less than 2 years of training experience), constantly changing programs and exercises will never truly allow you to master a movement.
Here is what you should do instead:
1. Stick To The Basics
If you want to get stronger, get very good at executing the basic movements: squat, hinge, push, and pull. Stay away from single-leg-banded Bosu-ball kettlebell squats. Train all the basic movements so you become able to move more weight over time.
2. Stick To A Well Structured Training Plan
One that has phases built on each other, so you can bring up your weaknesses & progress from month to month. This will help avoid plateaus and make your progress the main driver of your motivation.
