Crawl before you walk…
It’s the top of the year. The gyms are packed with folks with their heads full of steam trying to fit back into their high school varsity jackets. I’m sure that’s not you 🙂
We need to have a sensible approach to our goals, and produce an effort that’s long enough lasting to succeed.
If you don’t currently exercise much, take it easy as you begin. Heck, I’d suggest NOT starting at the gym, start out in the world. Do some stretching, or go for a long walk 4-5 days a week outdoors.
Ease yourself into movement before you go hard. I know it’s not in the brochure, but more people bounce off of hardcore training like Crossfit, than the number of people who stick with it. The culprit? Injuries.
Give yourself a couple weeks of consistent, light activity and mobility work to prepare your body for the next phase.
You’ll never reach the goal if you’re sidelined by an injury.
Good. Catch you later.
