4 Ways To Keep Crushing Strength Gains Beyond Your 30’s

4 Ways To Keep Crushing Strength Gains Beyond Your 30’s

Happy New Year!

Since this is the first day of the new year I figured I would share one more article from 2018 today when I went into the archives. The original publishing date of today’s article was back on July 3, 2018.

Whether you like it or not today is the day that many people start setting New Year’s Resolutions. Whether you do that or not I figured that today’s article may help guide you even if you decided it’s time for you to “tweak” your training looking at the new year. Read and apply!

  1. Are you continuing to win your war on strength beyond your 30’s? 
  2. Are you currently trying to lift and train the same now as you did in your 20’s? 
  3. Are you battling with ailments and injury more often? 
  4. Are you still trying to blast out record PR’s every 6 to 8 weeks in your 30’s? 

If you’re looking to keep crushing your strength gains for the long haul then you’ve got to change up your strength and conditioning approach as you ease into your 30’s, 40’s, and beyond. Sure you can still blast some new PR’s and blow up the heavy weight, but I would strongly recommend going about doing it intelligently and with an eye for experience.

Rugged Strength Training: The Untold Benefits Of Outdoor Training

The original publishing date of this outdoor training article was back on June 9, 2016.

If you’ve been considering such a change in your program then you will want to take the time to read this article to understand what you might be dealing with involving the change.

Perception may be the “reality” to you…and if you fail to pause and look beneath the surface to seek out what is really going on then your perception will be your reality whether for good, or for bad. If you believe the only way to get in a full day’s work in your training is by having access to a fully stocked weight room then I’m here to tell you that your perception is NOT the reality. If you want to learn about the benefits of outdoor training then keep on reading my young Jedi!

Focus On Training Movement Instead Of Muscle

Focus On Training Movement Instead Of Muscle

  1. Which muscle group should you train more of?
  2. Is the focus of your training targeting the improvement of your functional movement?
  3. Are you programming your training for smarter gains? 
  4. Is your training making you more injury prone, or more resistant to injury? 

For the most part your focus should shift from worrying about training muscle groups to training movement patterns. Having been in the fitness business for over 17 years I can say that most people develop movement dysfunction because of poor movement, improper lifting technique, and bad exercise selection based on their individual needs.
