You will get the best out of your fitness with hard work.
There's no way around that.
No shortcuts, no hacks, no tricks.
Hard work is the money maker.
But that doesn't mean you should turn your brain off
and just slog through everything.
You can get a lot more out of your workouts
if you work BOTH hard AND smart.
And the easiest place to start is with your warm-up.
If you know that it's tough for you to get deep on your squats,
spend some time pre-workout opening up your hips.
If you know that going overhead or into the front rack is hard on your shoulders,
then do some mobility work before you lift.
We build mobility into all our classes,
but there's simply not time to mobilize
every person's individual restrictions as a group.
But that doesn't mean you shouldn't tackle it on your own.
At a minimum, our gym is open 15 minutes before every class.
Next time you get here, instead of just waiting for the class to start,
grab a roller, a ball, a band and some floor space
and get some work done.
Make that 5 or 10 minutes count.
Look at the workout on the board
and do some of the mobilizations you've learned.
Ask a coach if you need some tips.
Use your time well and get ready to set some new records!
