Are you tired of workouts that promise amazing results fast but fail to give you even mediocre results after months of training?
I’ll let you in on a little secret, it’s not necessarily the workouts themselves that are the problem.
You see, any sensible workout could work as long as they satisfy one vital condition. But before we get to that, let’s first define what ‘sensible workout’ means.
What Makes a Workout Make Sense
For a workout to be considered sensible, it must be designed based on how the human body likes to move and how it responds to training—which essentially means three things:
- The exercises must not put you in positions that make you prone to injuries
- It allows you to progressively overload so you can keep improving
- It takes recovery and nutrition into account
So, fewer overly complicated (and needlessly dangerous) exercises like balance board squats and more basic lifts like kettlebell swings and dumbell squats.
And now that we got that out of the way, it’s time to talk about the condition I told you about at the start of this post.
What Makes a Workout Work
For a training program to get you the results you want, it needs to be perfectly in line with your specific goals and needs. It may seem obvious, but a lot of people tend to forget this fact when choosing a training program to follow.
At the end of the day, just because a ripped individual is endorsing a workout, doesn’t necessarily mean it would work for you too. There are a lot of factors you need to take into account, such as:
- Your current fitness level
- The results you want (e.g., more muscle, more strength, or more endurance)
- Your stress levels
- The amount of free time you have (or you can make)
- Your recovery speed
- The type of activities you enjoy
The Bottom Line: Pick a Workout That Works for YOU
If you really want to transform your body, stop trying every ‘revolutionary’ workout you come across and start focusing on finding a training program that’s perfectly aligned with your specific goals and requirements.
