This approach may work for a while, but in the long run it can actually lead to stagnation, burnout, or injury.
In this case, instead of throwing more at your fitness goals, it can help to take a step back and return to the fundamentals. Instead of adding new exercises and quadruple-ultrasets to every workout, remind yourself of the essentials with these time-tested fitness tips from the athletes of Team Grenade.
