I believe I am going to progress every workout. This confidence is a key ingredient. I see too many young lifters each day with a mindset of failure..."I'm stuck, I need a new program!"
I've used basically the same routine for 20 years. The last 3 years I've played around. Some might argue, but I believe that for beginners and intermediates, drive and will to succeed is more important then routine.
I agree. My best and fastest progress came with a "no fear, no excuses" and a "train harder AND smarter" approach. There are more tricks to improve a lagging lift than there are lifts!!
