Keep it Simple

There’s so much variety in strength and conditioning and in the fitness world. We’re told to keep our muscles guessing (whatever that means) and constantly change what we’re doing so we never hit a plateau. There’s something to be said about variety for variety’s sake, but there’s a difference between rotating exercises and randomly picking them.

The best way to keep progress going, over a long period of time, is keeping it simple. The answer is probably doing more squats, more lunges, more inverted rows, more carrying kettlebells and more ankle and hip and thoracic spine mobility.

Whether you’re a total beginner or an advanced gym rat, these movements are staples in a good strength and conditioning program. Complicated workouts and training sessions can be fun, and might be necessary sometimes, but hammering the basics consistently is the superior way to train.
