If you've encountered plateaus with your current strength training program and you can't seem to get over this slump no matter what you do, then keep reading...
What's your max squat? How much ya bench? What's your best deadlift? Can you press your bodyweight?
Today, pushing quantifiable expressions of strength, like your maxes, is becoming increasingly ubiquitous.
However, though strength may be specific, real strength is much more than a powerlifting total - it's about resilience, capability and adaptability.
It's survival of the fittest after all, not the strongest.
But most strength training programs emphasize mastering only one factor of strength - technicality via neuromuscular efficiency, which happens to be the least transferable factor of strength too.
There are other factors of strength that should be trained, which offer more carryover to other sports as well as to other aspects of life.
In fact, your training should be specific to you, and it should be dependent on your training advancement, goals and weaknesses.
Yet I see many strength enthusiasts make the same mistake I once made Get addicted to the simplicity of beginner linear progression programs and try to run them forever.
But proper training doesn't have to be complicated; you can continue to have simple programming as you enter the intermediate and advanced stages of your lifting career.
