7 Reasons You're Not Getting Stronger

Strength gains aren’t easy. Find out what could be holding you back.

Strength is loosely defined as your ability to lift or move a maximal load one time. So why are you sticking with the same old ‘3 sets of 8 to 12 rep’ program in your attempt to get stronger? In order to add pounds to your lifts, you need to train closer to your one repetition maximum.
