Bodybuilding is hard. Building muscle, losing body fat, and hitting new PRs are all hard. Sure, things may start off easy, but as you continue to push the envelope and work towards fulfilling your genetic potential eventually it’s going to get hard, and when it does how will you respond?
In today’s episode, Andrea, Alberto, and Brad discuss the “slumps” of bodybuilding. The coaches start by defining what a slump is, what the most common causes are, then cover how to handle these challenging times in ways that keep you on track with your goals.
When most people experience a slump they accredit it to insufficient calorie intake, poor training program design, inadequate volume, etc., and while all these things can certainly be the cause, the coaches make it quite clear that false expectations are one of the most common inducers. If you are currently going through a rough patch in your training, dieting, gaining, or anything else bodybuilding related, give this episode a listen for some guidance and encouragement.
