During your first year of training, we can increase your resistance on a regular basis as your strength and technique improve. Of course, this can’t go on forever, eventually, you will reach your optimal potential. Let that sink in for a moment!

Your optimal potential means the very strongest you can be at this stage of life. You’re essentially at your best. This contributes greatly not only to how you feel but also to your overall health. Once you’re at your best, you want to stay there, you want to stay on top. Remember, if you’re over 30, there is a slow but steady pull toward strength loss and loss of muscle mass.

So, it is essential to invest that exercise effort every week to stay on top and beat that decline associated with aging. Think of it not as a plateau but rather as your optimal potential. You want to get there and stay there!
