Loved this post from @revivestronger on why if you want to make serious progress you can't just to go the gym every week and wing or make it up on the spot. #training #periodisation #lifting #gains #guyswholift #girlswholift #youneedplanning #timetobulk #timetoshred #fatlosstips #gainingtips #strength #hypertrophy #gym #physique #musclegain

Are you training or are you just exercising? I see a lot of people exercising & pissing away time.
Fair enough, if you just want to burn some Calories, stay active & healthy, then exercising is fine. BUT if you want to progress, you need to start training.
When you train you take a long-term view, you don’t look at what you’re doing today in isolation, you look at what you train each session as full-filling a need for an objective. To quote Mark Rippetoe directly “training is physical activity for purposes of satisfying a long-term performance goal”.
So each session you do in the gym builds towards the next, there is a process, you don’t just go in the gym to get a sweat on, feel the burn and get tired, you go in there to help take you along your journey to your overall goal.
Training means planning, you need to plan not only what you’re going to do in each workout, but also what you’re doing each week, each month and why you’re doing it, there needs to be logical progression.
This longer term perspective is called Periodisation, if you want to learn more about this then click the link in my bio @teamrevivestronger to read the article.
