The feeling of stagnation or being ‘stuck in the mud’ is the single largest drain on motivation that researchers have identified.
Many gym-goers find themselves in this position – they enjoy working out; they’ve made good progress; but at a certain point they hit a wall. They get stuck in a plateau.
Usually one of two things will happen at this point – either they gradually stop showing up, or they just keep on going through the motions.
This book will serve as a guide for the third and less travelled option – how to break through plateaus, take your fitness to the next level and actually achieve your goals.
It’s easy to think we can rely on sheer will to do this – for example, by just training harder and more frequently – but, in reality, this is a naïve approach and can only take us so far.
In fact, training is only one variable in a much larger equation. Taking your fitness to the next level often requires that you start building new habits both inside and outside of the gym. This book will cover both.
