Here's something from John Christy that should strike a cord with some people. Consistancy on a good routine is THE KEY.
By John Christy:
"Have you ever trained an entire year without missing a single workout? Can you imagine what kind of development you would possess if you could constantly add weight to the barbell and make your prescribed reps every week for 52 weeks in a row? Well, I'm going to tell you about another one of my trainees who has done just that - and then some.
One hundred and four workouts in a row-every Wednesday and Saturday like clockwork, and no injuries or illness. To give you a little idea of how his strength improved, his deadlift went from 45 pounds (yes, an empty Olympic bar) x 15 to 300 x 5, bench press went from 185 x 5 to 259 x 5, and he's gained 45 pounds and even though these numbers aren't "world beaters" yet, as you can imagine he looks like a different person. Not bad for his first year of sensible training.
I challenge you to compare your results over the last year of training, with what Craig has achieved. I'm not saying this to add to your frustration because your training has gone nowhere in the last several years, but instead to help you -- to show you that there is a way to accomplish your dream of a well-developed physique and great strength - without the use of drugs.
