Sometimes you just have to work harder

The human body is amazingly adaptable and can get used to the hardships of training very quickly.

Without a regular change in stimulus, your gains will stall. 

This is why progressive overload is such an essential principle of effective training. And why proper planning and logging of workouts become so crucial.

These practices provide a benchmark and target for every training session or cycle.

This allows you to perform better than you did in the session before.

Yes, there is such a thing as overtraining and you should avoid working to failure too often or lifting more than you can safely handle.

But to keep seeing improvement sometimes you will have to push through and go one more.

Squeeze out that last rep even when your body is screaming at you to stop.

Crank the pedals for one more turn, even when you feel like you are going to throw up.

The goal isn’t to be stronger, faster, fitter than everyone else in the gym.

The goal is to be a better version of yourself than you were the week before. 

To achieve this you should work smarter with optimal programme planning, nutrition and recovery. 

But, sometimes, you will just have to work harder.
