Sadly, one of the common threads running through most answers is that these guys have been taught, and programmed, any number of virtually pointless exercises.
The source of this pointlessness is varied, sometimes fitness rags, sometimes the internet or social media, often Personal Trainers.
This happens because the need to be entertained, and to entertain others, all too often surpasses the commitment to achieve. The path to results, be they improvements in strength, conditioning, or body composition, is a simple one.
It’s not easy, but it is simple.
If your programme is complex, chances are it’s not effective, and you’re the victim of an entertrainer (see what I did there?)
Why does this happen?
Because simple seems too good to be true, hence all too many people are no longer trained, instead they’re entertrained.
How do you know if you’ve fallen into this all too common trap?
