We're only 12 days away from Valentines Day.

Don't forget to show your Valentine what you really love the most:

Today's Fitness Tip:
Classic workouts are classic for reason: They've stuck around because of their simple ability to be productive workouts.  Others have tested them before you and have applied them to others. 
Workouts like the 5x5 plan have stuck around for decades because of the simple ability to apply them to compound exercises and eliminate confusion.
Try not to get caught up in workouts that have 10-12 different exercises per workout day.  Its a lot to learn and the only confusion happening is not to your muscles, but to your brain.
It's like doing algebra in first grade.  First graders don't do algebra, they do simple addition and subtraction.  They get those basics honed down first and progressively are able to do harder math equations.
Same goes with training the human body.
Don't start trying to be like Albert Einstein to solve E=mc2.
Just get your addition flashcards down and make sure you got those skills down first.
Focus on 3-4, maybe 5 compound exercises in a workout and nail them down.
You don't have to do 14 variations of chest exercises. 
Keep this stuff simple, folks.
