So your new year’s resolution is to select a training routine from the many possible weight lifting programs and get in shape? Or maybe you’ve been working out for a while?
Well, which ever category you fit into there’s one important aspect of getting into shape that cannot be overlooked. Whether your skinny and want to put on solid muscle, in pretty good shape and just want to refine what you got, or maybe your overweight and want to lose fat while building muscle, you must have the right mindset.
What do I mean by having the right mindset? Well, you probably already know that any worthy goal is going to require some level of work and persistence.
Initially when you start working out your probably going to see some pretty great results such as several pounds of weight loss or fast increases in your strength. And then… all of the sudden you hit it.
You hit the dreaded plateau.
Your results (weight loss, strength gain) won’t increase as much or will level off for a while. Has your workout let you down? No, probably not. Everyone hits a plateau at some point. The important thing is to understand this ahead of time and have persistence. Keep on working out. Sure you might need to change things up or up your intensity, but nonetheless keep on doing your weight lifting programs.
You will break through soon enough and once again start seeing great results. That is of course if you chose a good weight training program to begin with.
