It’s true that I drag a weighted sled, made up of an old spare tire and some plywood, up and down my block, sometimes at 5 AM, other times at 10 PM, which, most people and neighbors think is nuts.
It’s not true that you have to do that in order to be the strongest possible version of yourself.
It is true, however, that you need to constantly push yourself.
That might mean …
- Adding more weight
- Adding more reps
- Doing the same reps in less time
- Trying new exercises
- Recovering harder
- Eating differently
- Using new tools, objects, or grips
- Training more (or less) days per week
… and the list could go on.
What it doesn’t do, ever, is stay the same.
