Looking around at the majority of the population it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that most folks aren’t getting the most out of their workouts. Poor lifestyle habits, bad program design, and the inability to seek out knowledge for principles that involve effective strength and conditioning tactics all qualify as reasons that people have failing workout programs at every level. I have been a strength and conditioning specialist and professional trainer here in the Atlanta, Georgia area now for over 10 years and I see these very problems with people on a daily basis. The thing is that it doesn’t matter where you are along the spectrum of fitness you will fall short of your goals if you are not getting the most out of your workouts. Athlete or not you must always train smart to get results!
