“Make measurable progress in reasonable time.”
This week is all about understanding what a modified workout is and RX. It is easy to get caught up with having to RX every workout, but the importance of the workout is the focus and the stimulus intended for that workout. If the workout is supposed to be a fast workout for most, but attempting the RX weight or movement standards is slowing you down so much that your stimulus has changed completely. What do you do then? Probably best to go faster and less weight! but in some workouts the purpose is to grind through heavier weights and have a slower pace. At the end of the day, us coaches help you decided what is best for you but you only go as fast and heavy as TECHNIQUE ALLOWS. If you think this way, your longevity in workouts will be more positive and you will learn how to move properly in a measurable progress =)
We asked few of our members that have been in both ends, having to modify a lot and now hitting the RX workouts.!
By the way how awesome does it feel when you do RX for the first time and it is LEGIT!! WOOH big high five to those that did that this week =)!!
