5 ways to revive a dying workout
By Ron Harris
My daughter asked an interesting question the other day – do you ever have bad workouts? Since I started training in 1983 and thus have logged well over 10,000 workout sessions, there have certainly been more than a few that weren’t spectacular. In nearly all cases, the reasons came down to either not eating enough, not sleeping enough, being sick or injured, or being preoccupied with work, money, or relationship problems. That’s real life for all of us. But there have also been plenty of times when I ‘just wasn’t feeling it.’ I’d get in the gym and start the workout, but it never really felt like I was accomplishing anything. Those are the times when something needs to change fast to salvage the workout. Here are some ways that have helped me do that over the years.
GO FOR A PUMP
One of the most common motivation killers is when for whatever reason, your strength is down. Suppose you can normally squat 405 for 10 reps on your heaviest set, but today 315 feels like it’s crushing you. Talk about disheartening! Rather than bitch and moan about how you’ve suddenly turned into a weakling, strip the bar down to 225 and try to get 4-5 sets of 20 reps without resting more than 90 seconds between sets. Do a couple giant sets of leg extensions, leg press, and walking lunges for 20 reps each. Forget about how much weight you’re using and just pump the target muscle up like a balloon. I guarantee you won’t feel like a failure anymore, and you will probably get some fresh gains out of it.
