You walk into your gym in January and scan the crowded craziness. You look over to your gym’s four squat racks. Three of the racks have now become curl racks. One is being used for 1/16 squats while a buddy captures the epic squat session on the latest iPhone to share with the world on YouTube. Every bench press station in the gym has one guy doing half bench presses with elbows flared while the “spotter” lifts 75% of the weight while yelling the famous, “It’s all you bro!” which is most accurately translated from bro slang as, “I don’t know how to spot!” Frustrated, you take a deep breath in and wisely tell yourself that this is what your gym needs to pay the lease so you have a place to train year round. Now, you resolve yourself to make the best of this situation. If you want to pack on some high-performance muscle this year, here is a plan that will work for you even in the busiest gym.

The journey to your training goals is anything but a steady upward climb to success. If you have been training for a while, you can no doubt look back and remember good years and bad years. This past year was one of the best years of training I have had in a long time! Despite the fact that I’m 36, was working 3 jobs and trying to start a business while being married with 3 young children, it was a fantastic year from a training perspective. As I reflect on this past year of training, I wanted to share what I did with you in hopes that it will help make 2015 the best training year of your life.

One of the things I love about training is that it teaches so many great life lessons such as hard work, dedication, commitment, sacrifice and delayed gratification. However, life also offers great lessons that can be applied to training. Earlier, we took on the task of re-painting our house. In doing so, I was reminded about 4 important training lessons that will help you get better results with your training.
