Today I’d like to share my thoughts about serious disease that is taking over the world. This plague is hard to defeat and the person who gets infected stays ill for the rest of his life (well, in most cases). Call it whatever you want: “being strong”, “being lean”, “being muscular” etc. But for the sake of simplicity let’s call it “being fit”. If you are getting one or several, or all of these symptoms then you are definitely infected and there’s no turning back…

Believe me, you’ll hit a plateau someday. And the worst thing you can do is to continue doing the same thing. It would be great to train in the same set/rep scheme or eat same foods and get infinite results but this simply isn’t true. Continue reading
