Light Moves and Heavy Training.
Some notes from recent events in training;
1] Honour your technique when learning, and later, as you practice your exercises.
You don’t have to be inch perfect all the time, but make sure you’re not getting sloppy and casual about the form.
2] Set yourself up before a training session, not just physically, but in your mind. Training is an event, and if you regard it as such, you make an opportunity to express yourself physically, and to discipline yourself mentally. You can then drive yourself emotionally to the edge of your comfort zone, and beyond, but with a control. That’s what makes a difference.
3] Focus on the muscle most involved in the exercise. The rest of the body will synergize instinctively. Let it happen. That’s why you need to take your time. That doesn’t mean you slouch through the moves. You do them with vigour, power, and deliberation.
4] The term for exercising is ‘training’. Make sure that that’s what you’re doing, and not just going through the motions. True Training is an exercise in attention, and intention. That’s the kind that pumps the muscle, pulses the circulation, ignites the blood and fires the mind.
It invigorates, enlivens and relaxes the mind, the body, the spirit.
Let it work for you and have a Healthy, Happy, and Hugely Enjoyable Patrick’s Day.
