Well I'm down in Louisville for the IYCA summit, and so far it's looking to be a really great event. I'll write more about it after the two days are finished.
If I've said it once I've said it a million times. Every training program needs a goal. Truth be told we all work harder at something if there's a specific task that needs to be accomplished. Goals can range from increasing your deadlift, increasing your number of pull ups, loosing 10 pounds, etc.
Let's say your goal is to maintain, that's great but it has it's flaws at the same time. If you don't vary your workouts or the stimuli then your body will start to accomodate to those workouts and you won't reap much benefit from them. Even if you're goal is to maintain, give yourself small goals to achieve, such as a certian number of push ups, a cerain number of sprint repeats in an allotted time frame, or working on your pull ups. This way you aren't forced to completely change your workouts, you've just added a little something extra that will keep you interested in what you're doing. And you'll even see some results from it.
