I have been going to the same gym since 2007, and sometimes I'll stop going for about one or two years at a time. I have had a hard time returning to my training for over one year now, and I think it is because I don't want spend one hour training my body parts every week. Every time I stop training it is usually because I am not motivated to do sessions dedicated to small muscles like chest, biceps or shoulders. From reading about training over the years, I have noticed the Eastern Bloc countries getting mentioned in their successes with getting their athletes to move up weight classes. I think it's time I try training like them, because I don't care to do isolation training. I just want to be healthy and have a base of muscle mass because I am getting skinny-fat. I used to want to be a competitive bodybuilder, but not anymore. Is there any help I can get to find out what the training methods of the Eastern Bloc countries were for moving up weight classes? I have access to bumper plates and I have a base of strength and know proper form for all the basic exercises. Again, this is just to build up a base of muscle for looking good in clothes. handling stress, etc. I don't mind if the training includes strength work either. Thanks in advance!
