Follow Your Program to a “ T ”
Benefit: Never Missing a set or rep will show you exactly how well your program works.
Setback: The January gym crowd does not respect your game plan.
The Fix: Always be ready to call an audible – especially if you train during the pre- or post- work gym rush. Save a handful of 15- to 20-minute body-weight and high-intensity workouts on your smartphone to get you in and out during peak times. Also, know which moves to substitute if foot traffic prevents you from using certain equipment. For example, do goblet squats or kettlebell jump squats when the squat rack is taken.
