Do you prefer the smaller barbell? Maybe you have a certain rack you always use. Would you rather use a dumbbell instead of a kettlebell?
If you have a preference, then it’s time to switch things up. It’s taking the idea of working on your weaknesses to the next level.
Overhead squats may be a goat, but you don’t skip them because you prefer back squats. You work on them.
“But I don’t like that barbell. It’s hard on my hands.” Then you should be spending more time on that bar so it’s not so hard on your hands.
You don’t want to use that kettlebell because the grip is too big and it makes the workout harder? Good! Grab that thicker handle and go to town. Because the next time you use the smaller handle, it will be that much easier.
The list goes on…skipping ropes, older barbells, working out at the spot closest to the door.
Break the routine. Mix things up. It will make you stronger.
