Hi, my name is Eli, let's talk!
This picture was taken this past weekend at the IPL Worlds in Las Vegas. I was going over the game plan with my athlete, Steevie, who went on to break the deadlift world record twice! Steevie was very happy.
About 3 hours later, another lifter in Steevie’s class blasted out on stage and beat the record that she had just set! Well, it was fun while it lasted.
I am willing to bet that if you’re reading this right now, you have come across my account and decided to give it a follow in your pursuit of fitness excellence. Maybe you’re a competitive power lifter, CrossFitter, or just someone who needs some direction in how to constantly improve who they are, repeatedly becoming better than who/what you were yesterday.
I have a question for you: when is the last time you set a PR (personal record)? Almost every athlete will hit a plateau at some point in their training, and the best way to overcome this is, well, not to plateau in the first place! I know that sounds crazy, but one way you can do this is to make sure that you’re PRing every day! You can do this by adjusting your goals and attacking them in smaller increments.
Here are some ways to increase the total capacity you lift each workout in SOME WAY
•lift more weight per rep than last time
•lift more reps with the same weight than last time
•lift more TOTAL weight for the workout than last workout
•lift the same number of reps, sets, and weight, but do so with less rest between sets
•lift with better form or a harder variation (deeper, greater ROM, etc)
Let's talk. Shoot me a message or leave me a comment on how I can help you in your pursuit of excellence and get you on the road to PRs!
