Plateaus suck. We all know that.
Lifting can be extremely satisfying, but it can also be supremely frustrating if you’re not getting results fast enough and you don’t know what to do to get the weight moving again.
And where do you find the information you need to break through those plateaus?
5-minute YouTube videos? Short articles with a clickbait headline?
Nope. If anything, that stuff just makes everything more confusing.
Most of the information in the fitness industry only gives you tidbits – information that might be interesting, but that doesn’t really change your training or understanding in any real way.
When I talk to clients, readers, and subscribers, I can see that a lot of people are missing a lot of the “puzzle pieces” required.
If you’re stuck, if you’re at a plateau, or if you’re feeling overwhelmed by all of the conflicting lifting information out there, here’s the harsh reality:
It’s not going to get better if you keep doing the same thing and if you keep reading and watching the same surface-level content.
That can mean wasted potential. Wasted months or years that could have been productive and gainful.
Don’t be that bro who had crazy newbie gains then never got any stronger.
So what's the difference between stuck and un-stuck?
It’s simple: You must know how to optimize your bench for your own body and preferences. Tweaking your form for a lift to make it optimal for your body can help you add weight to the bar RIGHT NOW. (I’ve seen dozens of clients PR immediately after I’ve given them a few pointers on this topic.)
Learning to optimize the bench for your body: This 1 simple thing is the difference between stuck and un-stuck, and often the difference between novice lifters and elite liters.
Easier said than done, though, right? For me, learning the information needed to adjust lifting technique took about 10 years. It took:
- Committing myself to reading exercise science research 2 hours a day, every day for a decade.
- Coaching dozens of athletes.
- Trial-and-error with my own body and programming.
- Talking with some of the best coaches in the world about these topics.
Now, that worked for me since I’ve made lifting and exercise science my full-time job. But you probably don’t have time for that.
I’ve condensed all that research, all that in-the-trenches experience both as an athlete and a coach, and all those conversations with other great coaches
If you want to do all the work for yourself, more power to you. It’s hard work. But, if you want to skip all that and learn everything you need to know right now, keep reading.
