SMASH Your Goals!
February 25, 2022
A common mistake people make when they start, or re-start, training, is to try and chase a bunch of goals at once. If you've ever tried this yourself then you know, not only do you not accomplish all of the goals, you don't accomplish any of them. Frustration sets in and you quit...
Instead, why don't you try to get more out of less?
Pick a simple, quick program, that you can ease yourself into. Get good at that program and then find a program that is a little more challenging. Don't pick a program that has too many end goals. You want to get stronger and move better - period. You don't want to jump into a program to compete in an Iron Man competition or prepare for BUDS. You want a program that focuses on the fundamental movement skills (Push, Pull, Squat, Hinge, Carry, and Other) and has minimal equipment requirements. Once again, your goal is to just get stronger... a little bit at a time.
If you take some time and build a good foundation of strength and movement, you will be heading in the right direction. And before you know it you will really be able to crush your goals!
