I want to challenge you all for the rest of April to stop being too competitive in class and just focus on improving certain exercises and move better. We have all been guilty of sometimes moving too erratic and wanting to win so much we lose sight of the purpose of the session.
A big thing to think about is how you use the timer. Don’t think about the timer as an opponent you need to beat. Use the timer to figure out your pacing, how long to rest and use it to keep you moving through the workout with purpose.
- Figure out at what pace can you keep moving smoothly through the reps without blowing out too early.
2. Find out how many seconds do you allow yourself to rest before you continue.
3. Use the timer to make sure you don’t rest too long between movements.
As soon as you finish a movement move straight to the next movement and start your work. If you slow things down a tiny bit and focus on one exercise at a time you will find you’re not spending so much time hunched over or on one knee resting. Your times might even improve.
I challenge all of you to change your mindset about what hard training is and start figuring out what is a good pace for you to train at. Make sure you improve your movement patterns and your skill level. Only then will you see true progress in your fitness.
