Do you ever feel like youve got into a rut with
training?
How do you get out of it?
no time to train but some desire still there
body constantly stiff and inflexible
goals yet achievable seem hard to reach weekly
a feeling like youre stopping still and being overtaken.
Is this normal?

sure is mate so I jacked in lol its hard though the mind is a lonely place and in this sport you are very solitary and have only others to look at and how ''good'' they are doing and thinking you wont stack up, so its easy to get down. Strength training and bb also seems to attract people with self image or self loathing problems, this compounds this training lull and the questions of is it all worth it also tends to bring out the questions of what am i doing wrong and what can I change to improve my training, which leads to the scatter bomb training and jumping from one program to another, imo the best thing to do is dedicate a reasonable amount of time to training without it impacting on more important parts of life, also set achievable goals based on the amount of time you set aside for training, if you cant be happy with the results in that amount of allocated time then maybe you have to consider is it worth doing it in the first place if it gives you negative feelings or just knuckle down and be happy with the results you get from that amount of training time.
I went through this when I changed jobs and just decided i'll never be happy as I have body image issues so I decided to diet and try look better which ws more important than training numbers.

Whatever you do you have to be happy doing it and the old saying of a break is as good as a change normally is true, excuse my ramblings by the way lol

Me too mate, lifting the same weights now since Christmas, getting absolutely nowhere, sometimes even dropping the odd rep over the previous week.
Doing my nut in.
Have even put over a stone on but still no stronger.
This has never happened to me before, I usually make steady progress but struggling to stand still at the moment !

Take a week or two off that usually helps me just gives your body time to rest and recover.

Ive also put on over a stone and no stronger. Thats probably the issue.
Week off?well I only train twice a week but if I take a full week off I feel worse!

I hate taking time off. always feel worse for it. best thing for me is to back off the weight and to do some higher rep work. the pump cures all! Grin

do some 8s that dont feel heavy, then keeping add a little weight each week until you get to 8s that do feel heavy. hopefully youll be strong again and those 8s will be heavier than the 8s that feel heavy now! WIN. Grin

no time to train


I can certainly associate with that!


If I never got stronger again it wouldn't bother me in the slightest. Wouldn't mind a 120kg strict press though, but that would be a non-essential bonus. Events of 2012 really highlighted to me what's important in life (although I already knew), and it's certainly not lifting weights! How about toying with some different lifts for a while (zerchers - wink wink Wink )? Post some silly stuff. Have a laugh.

Happy

It varys on the mindset, wether I was going backwards every week or smashing PBS every week I'd always be in the gym 4/5/6 times a week .

I love it! Can always make time for a session
