The fear of adaptation often stems from the natural slowing of gains. People panic, thinking they aren't doing something right, or that something is broken. They then pick up a Weider mag and it tells them they can bomb, blitz and blast their bodies into amazing spurts of new growth! They then read about some magical workout plan that guarantees to re-ignite gains.

This combination leads most lifters to believe that gains don't have to slow over time, and fools most into believing they are doing something wrong. To combat this you need to monitor your gains over time, using numbers, measurements, etc. THIS is the REAL story.

There is certainly a need to evolve training based on needs and weaknesses, but there is no need to randomly jump from program to program when gains are occurring, and occurring at a normal and natural rate.

Be patient, find a workout system you like, ride it like a horse right into the sunset, make adjustments as needed. In all things, monitor progress. "Guessing" is the enemy.
