Are You Challenging Yourself Enough?

When was the last time you increased you weight /resistance at the gym? To continue to improve (get stronger / burn more fat / etc.) you must challenge your body with heavier weights and/or new exercises. Our bodies adapt. Doing the same exercises, at the same weight / resistance, for the same number of reps will not result in significant changes to your body.

But remember, it's not about the actual weight. A 5 pound dumbbell may be challenging on some exercises for some people (at least at first) but way too light for someone else or for you after a few workouts.
