Strength Training: no need for innovation -- Part 2

Another thought on programs. A continuation of my last post.

There is a principle that states your body adapts to training. Your body gets used to the routine you are doing. Does that mean that the weight you are using is too easy? At this point, most people change what they are doing to the latest program in a health magazine. The solution isn't switching to another program or routine. The solution is adding more weight and sticking to what works!

When you adapt to the new weight, add more weight.

When you adapt to this, add more. And when this happens get the picture.

All of this added weight and adaptation is you getting stronger.

It is so simple that you probably won't do it. I will!
