A Guide to Understanding Your Progress in the Gym

At Healthfix, we understand that embarking on a fitness journey can sometimes be challenging, especially when results seem elusive. But fear not – progress is a process, and it follows a unique order. Today, we’re breaking down the sequence of results based on the insightful words of fitness expert John Romaniello so you can see progress in the gym.   

Strength Training: The Foundation of Progress 

The journey begins with strength training. As John Romaniello aptly puts it, “Strength is a skill.” Initially, your body learns to access its strength rather than increasing it outright. This is crucial in weight training, where you’re not only getting stronger but also honing your skill at lifting weights. It’s the foundational step, and every lifter experiences this phase.   

Performance: Unleashing Your Potential 

Once strength training is established, performance takes the spotlight. Your strength endurance, aerobic and anaerobic capacities, and coordination all come into play. Exposure to stress and consistent training enhances your body’s adaptability. Think of it as unlocking new levels of your own potential.   

Fat Loss Progress: The Visible Impact 

As your body adapts to stress, the next natural step is fat loss progress. While some initial fat loss occurs early on, the significant strides happen around 2-3 weeks into your program. Increased intensity and heavier weights contribute to a higher caloric expenditure. Day 25 will see much more fat loss progress than Day 1.   

Muscle Gain Tips: The Culmination of Effort 

Finally, we arrive at muscle gain. Hypertrophy, the process of muscle growth, is a meticulous journey. It demands specified training, higher training volume, and a dedicated nutritional program. Understandably, it takes time, but the results are worth the wait.   

What Does This Mean for You? 

If you’re just starting or feeling frustrated by slow progress, remember: Results REALLY Happen – In Order. Celebrate each phase, knowing that every step forward is a step closer to your goals. Be patient, stay consistent, and trust the process.    Your journey is unique, and at Healthfix, we’re here to guide and support you at every stage so that you see progress in the gym and in your every day life.
