Injuries were because of a "one-size-fits-all" mentality. Studying, I learned how to workout optimally. Now I am testing all my theories.
I believe that the way we eat and the way we train ought to be based on what our goals are. I used to think that there was only one way to workout and eat. That one size fits all. But I was always hitting a plateau, and having to workout longer just to see some kind of results. Even my results were based on limited info - the scale. How sure was I that I was losing body fat and not muslce? I was getting larger, but not stronger. I encountered more pain and injury with heavy reps and heavy weight.
I studied further on my own to learn optimization was key. Carbs and protein. Is it asthetics or performance that matters this month? Strength training is different from hypertrophic training. Cardio is good, but making it fun through high intesity interval weight training (for me) is better.
When dieting, I didn't realize what nutritional values were limiting me from seeing gains (strength), and reaching composition goals (fat loss).
You have to see the whole picture and train based on the goals. Understanding that if your goal is strength, you may not see fat loss. It will keep you motivated! Once you change the goal, focus on that a little, and change it up so that plataeus don't form.
Now I feel happier than I did before because goals are achieved. I am constantly improving myself physically. Constantly educating myself on how to optimize myself.

Supplements are just that... supplements. Only work when body demands them.
See my bodyblogs for info and reasons why I am "experimenting" with certain supplements.
