Adaptation: The Key To Success
Most of us were contemplating our strategies for 2020 not too long ago. Whether you were thinking about your next competition or how you were going to add ten pounds of muscle or finally get your ass in shape or improve your squat, you had plans this year. I don’t think that any of our plans included being quarantined on account of a highly contagious and potentially lethal virus sweeping the globe. But, hey, shit happens. And shit has most certainly happened. Aside from the immediate health threat posed by the COVID-19 virus, many of us have to deal with new difficult circumstances such as businesses shutting down, massive layoffs, food and product scarcity, and social distancing. So what does all of this mean for the average bodybuilder/powerlifter/fitness enthusiast like you and me? It means that we’ve all had to make some adjustments in the name of keeping things moving.

Deload For the Bodybuilder
If you are like me, nothing is better than destroying the log book week to week. Just weeks on end of battling with the iron to lay on slabs of new tissue. I wish this progress could be linear and never end, but it never pans out that way. Progress gets stalled, strength drops, injuries happen, and/or you lose motivation. A deload might be needed in these instances, so in this article we will look at when and how to utilize a deload.

New Mass For the New Year
A new year is a great time to reflect on the past and move forward with greater knowledge and experience. When I think about what I learned this year, the biggest factor in my improvement as a bodybuilder was in perfecting the basics. We can’t advance if the basics are not in place or not optimized to the fullest. It can be easy to get hyper focused on fine details and lose sight of the big picture. With that in mind, I will cover the basic tenets to help you lay down some new muscle mass this year.
