Get after it with this trick...

There is a time and a place for fun conversations in the gym. These can even take place while working out/in as long as the type of training dictates your ability to multitask. But when it comes to true training, the objective that awaits our attention, effort, focus, and much more, we  simply can’t afford to be multitasking. Our energy, emotion, breathe, focus all must be on our objective no questions asked.

Now, for all of us GS folks what am I getting at here? Well, when it’s time to focus - focus. When play is of opportunity enjoy it, as long as it doesn’t mess with the objective in front of us. But when it’s time to go we must still play a game. This is where the trick comes in and works like a charm. Plus it will increase your work capacity, help you potentially burn more fat/calories, and increase the overall time you have in your day. What is it? Here you go...

Break the objective down into blocks. Know that a period of rest, hydration and refocus will come after each block in order to properly recover but also prepare for the next piece of the objective. When shifting your mindset to these bouts of extreme focus it makes it much easier to consistently power through sessions with so much more efficiency, mechanical and physiological stress, and develop simply better motor control.

How would this look? Well say my session looks like this

A. 10min warm up

B. Kb swing EMOM x 10min

C. Goblet squat 3x5

C. Bench press 3x5

C. Bicep curl 3x10

*little to no rest. Power through.

D. Prowler sprint 5x40yds

D. Med ball slam 5x10

*15 sec between. 1min between rounds

First. I would start a clock for the 10min warm up and just start moving and doing what A. I know I need to do for my body. B. What feels good that day as well. For 10min I will just ignore others, breathe deeply, feel the movement, and enjoy it.

Now I’ll grab a sip of water. Chat for a second while I rest and start to see the next objective in training today. A 3 exercise superset with little rest. I analyze, and think about the variables that will dictate my loads etc. I may take a warm up set real light to feel things out before I make decisions and check the clock before it’s back to go time. Before you know it this objective is done and your back to rest and a hello to a pal.

This isn’t rocket science. It’s just being a little more adult with our training and our approach towards our sessions. Plus remember in the end it will also have nothing but positive composition effects as well.

So there you have the rant. When it’s time to work I want to see you get into the flow state and WORK or aka FLOW. During rest and bouts of low intensity steady state work talk your asses off :). But when the deep mission awaits get your standard operating procedures in order and hustle!
