Treat Each Movement with Care– Heavy lifting is not the only time to slow down, set up, and move with intention. Each movement in your workout has a purpose and should be treated as such.
Trust the Process– Your workout, or your overall training regimen is not a race to the finish. Doing the same things often, perfecting and improving upon them is the best approach. Take your time learning new movements and progressing forward, and while you’re at it, enjoy the journey!
Do Your Homework– If your coach recommends something to do on your own, whatever it is, do it.
Fuel and Refuel Based on Your Goals – Often what you do outside the gym is just as, if not more, important than what you do in the gym. Whether your goals are related to general health, getting stronger, sleeping better, or losing weight, the food you eat plays a big role in getting you there. The precision nutrition blog (http://www.precisionnutrition.com/blog) has great info on this, or you can set up a time to meet with our own Alex Tanskey for a more individualized approach.
Sleep More, Stress Less– You’ve prioritized your workouts into your weekly routine, which is great. Now let’s prioritize winding down, relaxing, and getting good quality sleep – on a regular basis. This will help you recover faster and put you in a better state for your next workout.
