In spite of what all the experts say. when I see a simple program, I think this banal crap will never work......it needs more cowbell. In all areas of life we all want to be experts, with out actually doing the work. Ego searches for what it thinks it needs,excluding everything that doesn't fits into that paradigm ,there by remaining ignorant to what itactually needs. Since people are never pleased with the current situation, they continously search for an improvement. In doing so, they have a tendency to throw out the baby with the bathwater. In weightlifting terms, the baby will often be the routine and the lack of sleep, focus, and poor diet the bathwater. In blaming the routine, you have the convenience of not having to face your own failures. Sadly though, you can change routine, but you own lack of effort will be your loyal companion, in all endeavours you embark upon.

I plead guilty.....don't we all?

Maintaining is much easier than gaining. If you are heading out of town and have limited time to lift, or need to take it easier at the gym for a month due to the demands of life, reduce your isolation and assistance work and simply go in and hammer out the major compound exercises.

This will help you to maintain strength and muscle, and you can be in and out of the gym in no time.

Perfect timing with this advice, Steve. Thanks!

Thanks BtB - I needed to be reminded of this -

I am on the road and short on time, all the time - oh yeah, and I am weak and lazy

Anyone that dismisses the art of training has never achieved anything noteworthy.

You have to listen to your body and adapt.

1200 is a good natural raw total for the average lifter. Above that you either have to be super dedicated to powerlifting for many years and/or start adding weight.

Lift heavy weight to failure...every week, you will get stronger if you eat enough.
