This weekend has been a little busy, so I’ve gotten a tad behind on my posts. Friday’s workout was active recovery, which I thought was pretty fun. It wasn’t so much for time, but just to keep moving weight around. It was nice to workout together with Carrie and Bobbie. Our schedules have been different the past few months, so it’s rare that we are all doing the same thing at the same time. I’m definitely thankful for these girls in my life.
Steve talked to us for a little bit about fulcrums and centering weight over the most stable point… and some other things like this that I don’t exactly remember, but it made sense at the time. What I have learned about workouts that involve different weights and variables… take for example the sandbag clean and jerks I did on Friday, or slinging a sledgehammer… is that I have to stay calm. Of course there is technique involved, but I find that anything really is much more successful (and easier) if I just stay calm. It can be easy to freak out over new movements, or when a sandbag is awkwardly crashing on your face, but if I just stay calm and feel the weight and apply what I know, then it is more likely to work out. Does that make any sense? Anyway, that was something I was thinking about on Friday. Stay calm, and for goodness sakes, don’t quit!
