Are You In Your Comfort Zone? Or a Combat Zone?

When you head to your usual workout are you doing the right thing for yourself? Or are you just wasting time doing the same old thing over and over?

Let me ask you this: is the same old thing still working for you? Still seeing results? Or do you feel like you might be stagnating, stuck on a plateau… or in a rut because it's what you know and you don't know anything else?

Well, I'm here to tell you that if you are stuck in a comfort zone and don't do something to get yourself out of it NOW you're going to be exactly where you are for as long as you stay in this comfort zone you've got yourself surrounded by.

Do you still want to be where you are a year from now? Because that's what you're setting yourself up for if you don't get some variety… and soon!

Listen, your body is smart. It knows how to adapt to the pressures you're imposing upon it. If you don't give your muscles something new to do, something to surprise them and make them work HARDER than they're used to, they have NO REASON to change. They've adapted to what you're doing and they're ready for you this time and EVERY time.

If you don't 'feel' like you got in some hard work, chances are you didn't. Sure, psychologically you might feel like you got a good workout but your muscles won't. They were just out for another stroll in the park. The same old same old. Yawn. Boring. Nothing new here. Your muscles can practically sleepwalk through your routines if you've been doing them too long.

Real advancement with weight training only comes when you do a little 'damage' to your muscles. This is how they get stronger and bigger. And to damage them you must work them hard enough to cause microscopic tears in the muscle fibers. And, then after you're finished working out and your muscles get to do some serious resting they will repair themselves to prepare for the next onslaught of punishment they assume to be coming at them again soon (and they should be correct in that assumption, by the way).

That sore feeling you get after a hard workout is called "DOMS" and it stands for 'Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness' and it's a GOOD thing. That means your muscles are repairing the damage, growing and getting stronger and fitter. And that's what you want, right?

So, get some variety in your workout routines and watch how fast you fly off of that plateau. If you are always doing the same isolation moves like bicep curls and tricep kickbacks, change it up with some full body compound moves.

Or superset your exercises.

Or increase the weights you've been lifting. Seriously, how long have you been hefting the exact same weights? Have you even TRIED to get heavier with it in the past few months?

And, you should change up your entire routine at least once every six to eight weeks to keep your body from adapting to anything too quickly.

Remember to keep your body guessing. Your body should feel like it just walked out of a Combat Zone when you're finished working out. Not yet another Comfort Zone.

4 Reasons Why Sleep Deprivation Will Inhibit Your Muscle Gains

It may seem like a trivial issue that could be easily overlooked, but giving your body a proper sleep every night really is an important step in setting the wheels for maximum muscle growth into motion. If you really want to see the most dramatic changes in your body over the shortest period of time possible, a restful, quality sleep every single night is a must.What makes a proper sleep so important?Well, let's simply take a look at what happens when you DON'T get a proper sleep each night…


1) Mental focus will decline.

Putting forth an all-out effort every time you enter the gym is one of the primary keys to building muscle fast, and in order to do so you must remain mentally sharp at all tim…
