Practice the movements you want to excel at. As Dan John says, 'If it's important, do it everyday.'
Perform the movements you want to do well at in short bursts with submaximal weight. Do the exercise without reaching failure, and do it often. You can perform it as many times a day as you want, as long as you don't fail a rep. I try to stick to sets of five, as per the recommendation of Pavel Tsasouline at @strongfirst. This method is called 'greasing the groove'. -
Right now I'm working on pull ups. I have always found them challenging. Maybe it's my long arms, but I have never been able to break 20 reps. It's time for that to change!
What exercise could you apply this to?
A L I T T L E love goes a long way After a few (casual) months of lots of work, lots of play, lots of training and minimal sleep... (my badddd) .. It’s time to step up body love and give it a little nurturing. Making an effort to fit Yoga into my schedule Last night I saved my sore muscles by soaking in a bath with Epsom salts, candles and musicAnd most importantly, culling a little caffeine from my life and replacing it with good quality sleep, the true lifesaver!! (And obviously the most challenging ) But honestly after a bath and a good ol’ sleep, I am feeling like a new and energized human! Yew!! Have you been spending too long in the bathtub and not enough time training? Or too much time training and not enough in the bathtub? Need a self love kick in the bum? Jump on board the next 21 Day Challenge where you’ll also receive a kick in the bum for your training and nutrition too I know I’m excited! Jan 29th
