What happens when steady progress ceases to be a viable option, as it invariably must? I mean, the average person -- particularly 50 year old men like myself --- can't just keep throwing more weight on the bar.
So what is one supposed to do to continually progress in weight training? I never have understood that, so basically I just get to as much weight as I feel I safely can lift, or want to lift, for a given exercise and stay there indefinitely.
