1. Follow Your Own Path
I decided to train like a bodybuilder. Others focus on strength. Still others aim to succeed in CrossFit. Each of our chosen paths are right for us, because we chose them. Choose your own path and don’t let anyone try to push you off it.
2. Squat…But Only
If You Want To
I was fanatical about the back squat for my first two decades of training, but I’m convinced that my knee pain can be attributed to all those years of heavy squatting, so I’ve cut them out. I do miss squats, but I don’t believe I absolutely need them, despite what others may say.
3. Keep Moving
This is a big one for me. I typically rest less than a minute between sets. Sometimes a lot less. When you keep rest periods brief you increase cardio capacity, keep your pump going, and get out of the gym faster.
4. Machines Don’t Suck
Machines get a bad rap from the “hard-core” crowd, but the fact is that a lot of them are pretty good. Some are even excellent.
5. Make Sh*t Up
I like to think of the gym as my playground, and I’m there to have fun. So, consider making up your own exercises, so long as they don’t put you or anyone else in the gym in jeopardy!
