   In this modern day and age our society has attained an annoying trait; everyone wants immediate gratification. As I find myself starting a new 16-week lifting program, one thing stands out to me above all, I can’t WAIT to start seeing results.

   Now we all now that it’s illogical to see results immediately after a workout, but wouldn’t that be cool? Now I am not going to give you some trick for getting results faster, but I am going to cover some steps to be expected so at least you can know what may happen as you start your training. Training for results is a battle, but knowing is half the battle.

   The first step to expect is inadequacy. Why? Well because you’re body is NOT going to be able to do what your mind typically wants to do, so you feel less capable. So your weight and stamina is not going to be up to par. Don’t worry, this is normal.

   Secondly you’re going to be very sore for 2-3 weeks. During this period your focus should be on recovery and keeping to your training program even if you have to work a sore muscle. Just make sure to get 48 hours rest.

   Next comes the first cool stage. You workout and don’t get sore, and you start to feel stronger with more stamina. You still have not “arrived” yet though.

   Finally, you have reached the threshold to where from that point on you will start to amass small gains. It’s at this point that patience is the most important, because now you are set up to start really seeing the gains. So it may take up to a month, but once that time has passed you are primed to get the results you seek.
