Signs your training is progressing can be subtle! If you feel like your training has plateaued, you could be moving forward without noticing it.
Here are five ways to tell if you’re making progress in your training:
- Increased performance: One of the easiest ways to tell if you’re making progress in your training is by looking at your performance. If you’re able to cycle faster or go longer distances, lift heavier weights, or perform more reps, then you’re likely making progress.
- Decreased rest time: Another way to tell if you’re making progress is by measuring the amount of rest time you need after climbing a hill, a hard sprint effort, or between sets or exercises. If you’re able to decrease your rest time while maintaining your performance, then you’re likely making progress.
- Improved form: If you’re able to perform exercises with better form, it’s a good sign that you’re making progress. Improved form can lead to better results and reduce the risk of injury.
- Increased endurance: If you’re able to cycle or perform exercises for longer periods of time without feeling fatigued, then you’re likely making progress in your endurance.
- Better recovery: If you’re able to recover more quickly between workouts, it’s a good sign that your body is adapting to your training and that you’re making progress.
Remember that progress can be slow and steady, so don’t get discouraged if you aren’t seeing big improvements. Consistency is key to making progress in your training.
