The longer I train the more I realize you can do this thing a lot of different ways and still get results. 

You need to get the main things right like progressive overload, recovery from training, consistency, effort etc but a lot of the details you can play around with. 

This is why training remains fun to me. 

I used to do multiple sets of deadlifts in a workout and recovery was fine. Because I didn't have other demands. 

Now, because I have other interests and goals like doing jiu jitsu & pushing my unilateral strength, I'm only doing 1 top set of bilateral stiff legged deads. 

This serves two purposes, it at least maintains my bilateral strength and leaves me recovery capacity & time for other pursuits. 

You don't need to do as much volume/work to maintain something as it did to build it initially in the gym. I can do one top set of stiff legs every week or so and won't lose strength there. 

When I decide to come back & push it again, it'll be there. 

You can't push everything at once, all the time. Dedicated periods of pushing certain things while you throttle back on others is fine and necessary. 

And it's honestly more fun as well. I like to chase my interests and right now I wanna see how much I can B-Stance Stiff Leg & make sure I have the capacity to train BJJ 2-3 per week. 

When you don't compete in anything anymore it's fun to have things to work on for a season and pursue them for their own sake. Then, when things get stale you can reevaluate and decide what to work on next. 

This could be different exercises, different variations or different pursuits entirely. 

Lifting will always be a part of my fitness and it should for you as well! (You always want to be doing at least a minimum level of lifting for bone density, muscle mass etc)

But, there's so many activities out there to explore and engage in to keep you moving all of your days. 

Have some fun with it 💪

He provided my with a couple of drills that have really helped, and I’ve seen my squat weight go up too! Highly recommend his expertise.”
